REPLACEMENT TIMBER SASH WINDOWS
Each double glazed, timber sash window replacement that we manufacture and install across London and South England is bespoke.
Established in 1994, we have extensive experience working within London and the South of England and can replicate any traditional sliding sash window design. We also offer a supply only service nationwide. Where necessary, our wooden sliding sash windows can be manufactured to adhere to listed building and conservation area requirements.
Bespoke Timber Sash Window Company
Our timber box sash windows are manufactured by our skilled craftsmen in our workshops in Berkshire and come fully factory finished.
From our extensive experience working in period properties across London and the South, we have designed our Classic range which covers most requirements for Georgian, Edwardian and Victorian homes.
However, if you have specific design in mind, we can manufacture bespoke replacement double glazed sash windows that retain the feel of your period home.
REPLACEMENT SASH WINDOW SPECIALISTS
The Sash Window Workshop specialise in the replacement of traditional timber sash windows in period properties. We offer a supply and fit service across London and the South, with a supply only service nationwide.
The majority of our new timber sash windows are made in Accoya™, a sustainably sourced modified wood that comes with a 50 year anti-rot guarantee. We can also make windows in alternative hardwood timbers if you prefer.
Our new windows come fully factory painted in white, as standard. However, if you would like a specific colour we can also colour match to different paint finishes.
New Wooden Sash Windows: Our Process
When you make an enquiry, you will be assigned to one of our experienced sales surveyors. They will be able to answer any questions that you have and help identify the right solution for you.
If you wish to proceed, you will need to send the signed paperwork to us with the deposit. You will then have a manufacturing survey, when measurements are double checked before manufacturing starts.
During manufacturing we will contact you to arrange an installation date. Your new wooden sash windows will then be installed by our expert installers.
On completion, if you are available, our fitter will check that you are happy. After the work is completed and final payment has been made, you will be sent details of our guarantees and a satisfaction form.
TRADITIONAL SASH WINDOWS: THE HEALTH BENEFITS
Did you know that traditional, double hung sash windows can provide excellent ventilation to help reduce the spread of illnesses, such as COVID-19?
Paul Zisman, Chairman of The Georgian Group, commented on this in The Georgian magazine noting that:
“the traditional sash window has been cited in the media as an ideal means of natural ventilation, allowing cool fresh air to be drawn in below the lower sash and warm, carbon-dioxide rich air, potentially containing virus laden particles or aerosols, to be expelled above the upper sash. Perhaps some of the very sash windows that we continue to enjoy today helped to keep earlier generations of people safe during the various influenza epidemics that affected the country in the eighteenth century. The health benefits of the simple but elegant sash window provide yet another reason to protect it for future generations.”

Energy Efficient Timber Sash Windows
When looking to replace timber sash windows it is important to ensure that the new sash windows are as energy efficient as possible. At The Sash Window Workshop, our new timber windows are manufactured to provide the modern benefits of double glazing, while preserving the character of your home.
If you are unable to install double glazing, due to planning restrictions, we are also able to manufacture replacement single glazed wooden sash windows or use heritage double glazing, which uses a narrow profile meaning that it is more likely to be approved by planners.
If we are installing replacement sash windows in London and the South of England we will also draught proof the windows on installation, helping keep your home warm during the winter months.
Traditional Wooden Box Sash Windows London
Did you know that the traditional box sash window has been around since the 17th century? Amazingly the cord and lead weight design remains almost unchanged with spiral hung sash windows being a more modern development.
Victorian timber sash windows are a key architectural feature in a number of areas around London including Kensington, Islington and Hampstead. Conservationists are keen to retain the heritage features. At The Sash Window Workshop we are able to ensure that the patterns and designs are precisely copied to comply with listed buildings and conservation area requirements for sash windows in London.
In addition to complete new timber sash windows, we can also manufacture and install new sashes into the existing window frames, alongside complete new casement windows and external wooden doors. If your windows don’t require replacement, we also offer a draught proofing and overhaul service for timber windows.
