Sash windows have been used in the UK for decades, ever since they first became popular in Victorian and Georgian times. They consist of a number of individual boxed frames constructed in one or more moveable sections of window that slide over each other by the use of counterweights and chords.
If your home was built in Victorian or Georgian times and still has its original sash windows, then it’s more than likely that you will need them replaced. When they were originally installed, it’s unlikely that effective thermal and noise insulation was possible, and old sash windows are probably very difficult to operate as they are likely to have become warped and damaged over time. To put it simply, original sash windows may look great, but they are unlikely to be anywhere near as effective as modern, double-glazed and effectively insulated sash windows.
It’s likely that your existing sash windows are an intrinsic part of the aesthetic appeal of your home. If you feel the time has come to replace them, then changing them for poor substitutes of the originals can have a severe detrimental effect on how your house appears.
That’s why the careful and considered replacement of sash windows is something that we here at Wandsworth Sash Windows truly take to heart.
