Casement Windows in Earlsfield Wimbledon

This is a job we’ve just completed that’s local to us in Earlsfield. We’ve retrofitted the 2 front bays upgrading the sashes to hardwood double glazed units. Then we installed 5 brand new complete windows, again hardwood double glazed. Fully draught proofed on both the bays and the new windows, all new hardware, and leaded glass to replicate the existing and to stay in keeping with the street.

Why should I have sash windows in my property?

Aesthetics

One of the reasons why sash windows continue to gain popularity and have ongoing appeal in London is their aesthetics. Timber window frames are beautiful, eye-catching, and you can use them to add value to your property. Additionally, sash windows might be a basic requirement for your house, especially if you live in a listed property.

Structural integrity

When choosing the type of window to install in a home, security is always at the top of most homeowner’s priorities. When it comes to safety hardwood sash windows are a great choice, thanks to their structural integrity. Hardwood constitutes strong grain structures that enhance its strength and durability. Its a material that withstands the ever-changing climate in the UK.

Environmental friendliness

Timber is probably the most eco-friendly material you can use for your window system. Timber requires minimal energy to process, produce, and
transport. On the other hand, timber is a highly durable material. It would, therefore, take you a relatively long time to replace your window. Furthermore, the use of timber can be extended through reuse or recycling, especially if you choose to replace your window before the end of its lifespan.

Natural insulation

If you are looking for a way to minimise energy usage in your home, sash timber windows are one way to achieve this goal. Timber is a natural insulator. This means that you can have your home retain optimum temperatures during both winter and summer. Timber as a natural insulator is particularly helpful during winters, as its insulation properties help you maintain a low budget on your energy bill.

Enhanced ventilation

The sliding glass panes in this type of window go a long way in enhancing your home’s ventilation. A window with two sliding sashes at the top and bottom creates a conventional flow of cool airwaves that are perfect for your house during summer.

Different types of sash windows

These windows are categorised into 3 primary classes based on the era in which they originate.

Georgian sash window

The Georgian sash window features a 6 over 6 double-hung design.

This means that there are two rows of three panels each in a 6-light sash. The design also introduces small glass panes that are separated by several glazing bars.

Victorian sash window

The Victorian sash window era favours the 2 over 2 grid design. The design incorporates one large glass pane, with the smaller sashes featuring on upper rooms and larger ones on the ground floor.

Edwardian sash window

The Edwardian sash window features a 6 over 2 design, with a multi-pane approach for its sashes. This includes having a single glass pane on the lower sash, and multiple panes on the upper frame.

What are sash windows?

A sash window is one that is installed with at least one movable panel, popularly known as a sash. The sashes used form a frame whose function is to hold the glass panes often separated from other panes on the same window.

The number of glass panes used depend on the age or era of the sash window; some popular types include the Edwardian, Victorian, and Georgian eras.

These kinds of windows do not open on a hinge. Instead, sashes are installed in a way that they vertically lean on each other, one behind and the other at the front. Through lead counterweights, the formed frame or sashes slide side to side when opening or closing the window.
