Why Choose Box Sash Windows
28 Jun 2016

Why Choose Box Sash Windows

Sash windows can offer an unrestricted view out, while also providing period character that you simply can’t replicate with modern uPVC windows.

The timber frames used in the construction of the window can also be repaired, are easy to maintain, and can also be freshened up with a coat of paint or treatment. Whether you are looking to reintroduce period charm to a property where the original windows have been replaced with modern uPVC alternatives, need to replace existing and damaged sash windows, or you simply want to add charm to a modern property, there are a number of reasons why you should consider sash windows.

The charm of sash windows is arguably their greatest selling point. They were especially popular during Victorian times, but were also commonplace in Georgian and Edwardian properties. Large panes of glass were seen as a sign of wealth, so that many property owners installed sash windows with as few lights, or smaller panes, as possible. While six or eight pane light windows were common in earlier times, Victorian properties saw an increase in sash windows with only two smaller panes, and it is these windows that give arguably the most unrestricted views.

There are a number of configurations available, in modern sash windows, so that you can opt for the one that best suits your preferences or the age of the property. You don’t have to stick rigidly to the layout that would have been used on property of a similar era to your own, but there will be a sash window design to match whatever layout you want.

Sash windows can be top opening, bottom opening, or they can be opened from both the top and bottom, offering another choice for the sash window buyer. Different types of mechanism, including the original pulley and sliding mechanism as well as a sprung mechanism. Do bear in mind that if the mechanism on your window has broken or become damaged, you may not need to fully replace the window; it may be possible to have the mechanism repaired, saving you money and enabling you to retain the original windows.

The current trend with new windows is for uPVC frames, but they aren’t necessarily the best option. Timber framed sash windows can last for 100 years or more, they can be more easily repaired than uPVC, and they can be painted if they become discoloured by the sun or by dirt and debris. uPVC, on the other hand, cannot be painted, and any chips or other damage will usually have to be left, or you will have to pay to have the whole window unit replaced.

Glazing technology has improved considerably, and as well as hardwood timber frames, you can have double glazed windows fitted to your property. These modern sash windows are not only great looking, and offer plenty of character charm, but they offer the benefits of double glazing and the energy efficiency that you come to expect from a modern window.

The Original Box Sash Windows Company specialises in the repair and fitting of timber framed, double glazed sash windows in a variety of styles, designs, and configurations. Enjoy charm and character from energy efficient and long lasting windows.
