What are sashes on a window?

Sashes are the parts of a window that move when you open or close a window. By installing new sashes into existing window frames, you can upgrade to double glazed sash windows or casement windows without having to also replace the window frame.

This enables you to have more energy efficient windows at a fraction of the cost of replacement.  Installing new sashes also helps minimise disruption and retain the heritage of your traditional home.

HIGH ATTENTION TO DETAIL

We have extensive experience installing new sashes into the existing frames for both timber sash windows and casement windows.

When replacing the moving parts of the window, a high level of attention to detail is required in order to ensure that the new sashes fit and operate smoothly. This means that an exceptional level of attention to detail is required when measuring for the replacement sashes, before they are manufactured to fit precisely.

At The Sash Window Workshop, we will always take great care ensuring your existing windows are matched exactly and retain the original style of your home.

Energy Efficiency at a Fraction of the Cost

By replacing just the sashes (moving parts) of the window you can upgrade to all the benefits of double glazing without having to replace the whole window, helping to keep down the cost.

The new sashes we fit to existing window frames are normally double glazed (unless single glazing is required). We offer a range of glass and paint finishes for your new sashes.

Your windows are draught sealed to help keep your home warm and further improve energy efficiency and soundproofing.

During the installation process, the old sashes are removed, before the new sashes are carefully hung in their place. New ironmongery are also fitted to your windows.

Accoya: Sustainable, Anti-Rot Timber Windows

For new sashes we recommend using a timber called Accoya, which comes with a 50 year anti-rot guarantee.  Accoya is a sustainably sourced, highly durable and stable wood.

As the installation of new sashes into the existing window frame does not go back to the brickwork, FENSA deem this work as repair work, rather than replacement. This means that a FENSA certificate is not required for this work.

If your windows require full replacement, we can also manufacture and install complete new sash windows and casement windows. If you are not looking to upgrade to double glazing, we also offer a draught proofing service for timber windows.
