The Sash Window Workshop operates from its manufacturing facility in Bracknell to service the entirety of the South of England. This week's mapping shows a very London-centric picture of our working demographic, with some outposts stretching from near Northampton to Brighton and Hove.

Of course this means that for those in London there will have been plenty of opportunities to spot Mick emblazoned on the side of The Sash Window Workshop's vans from the base of the M1 to the borders of Surrey. Those outside of the M25 may have had more of a struggle to spot our vans, unless you journey the motorways as much as Mick and our team of dedicated fitters.

With the Olympics coming to an end, many people’s thoughts are turning to the legacy of the games, especially with the importance of legacy being driven home at the opening ceremony.

Though we may not be sporting giants, throughout our years of operation The Sash Window Workshop has attracted a great deal of repeat custom, and a high percentage of recommendations from our customers. Positive customer experiences are our legacy, and we’ve got a solid track record.

From rural Oxfordshire to the heart of London, Mick and our fitters have been providing the highest quality service for your windows and doors. What we have found is that as soon as one person in a road has had their timber windows and doors repaired or replaced by us, the neighbours want a piece of the action as well!

Just this morning we received a call where a lady began with "I'm looking at your van across the road as we speak". Far from being disturbed by this statement, at The Sash Window Workshop, we love calls like this. It means that someone has seen our work, seen our logo, and realised we really are the best people to ask about their wooden windows and doors.

The Sash Window Workshop receives a lot of calls from potential customers who aren't sure whether we work in their area. We thought an easy way of keeping you in the loop would be to show you what postcodes we are working in each week, to show that we've done work near you!

A lot of our work is within London postcodes, but we do operate all over the South. From this week onwards you can see where we have been, with one map showing the London areas, and another showing the outside London map.

August is officially coming to a close, and if this morning is anything to go by, we're jumping straight into December. Our installations team have worked tirelessly this week to supply our customers all over the South of England with beautifully finished handmade wooden windows and doors before autumnal routines get into full swing.

We have had a hectic week of jobs in central London, and with the Paralympic Games Lanes back in full swing, it’s a good job our fitters are on the road from Bracknell by 6:30am to miss the morning traffic!

Making and fitting bespoke timber front doors to grace a beautiful home is the most difficult work we do here at The Sash Window Workshop. It’s not for nothing they have to come at a premium price.

The Sash Window Workshop

Here at The Sash Window Workshop we are very proud of our logo which has become the public face of the company in London and the South East.

The logo shows Mick, who was one of our first joiners and whose photo was the inspiration for the logo. We believe that our logo epitomizes the craftsmanship and attention to detail that characterise all of our products.

At the Sash Window Workshop we make all of our products by hand in our Bracknell workshop because of this our customers often have to wait just a little bit longer to have their beautiful timber sash and casement windows and doors installed. We understand how busy our customers lives are and therefore offer them installation dates up to two months in advance.

Here at The Sash Window Workshop we are proud of our history of producing hand crafted timber sash and casement windows and doors for period homes in London and the South.

Our trademark installation and service vans leave the workshop in Bracknell with customer’s windows every morning at around 6.30 so that our installers can be on hand in customers’ properties between 8 and 9, so long as the traffic allows.

All of our installers wear the company uniform and carry ID cards.

Our fitting team are second to none in their skill, application and dedication even during the coldest winter months. Continually delivering the highest standards of work with a smile on their face. Some of you might recall the winter of 2010/2011, it was really tough.

Our team fitted record volumes of windows in the worst of conditions, leaving our clients delighted.  Fortunately this winter has been somewhat easier for them to date. So long as we give them the right equipment, support and a warm uniform to work in, they will deliver. Not forgetting the obligatory “curry night” in the spring, as a thank you for their efforts.

Occasionally at The Sash Window Workshop, we have to undertake additional work on windows that have deteriorated since the time of order. This is most common when Draught Sealing and Overhauling existing windows and doors.

In the 6-8 weeks between order and works being carried out, water damage and rot can spread at alarming rates. Unfortunately, though we do employ very skilled people, none of them have yet developed clairvoyance as a specialism, so we rarely know the extent of work really required before the fitters arrive at a given property.

Did you know that The Sash Window Workshop makes and installs well over £1m per year of best quality, bespoke timber doors? Including front doors, french doors and sliding folding doors? It seems to be a bit of a secret we haven’t been telling people.

The Sash Window Workshop has been manufacturing the highest quality traditional timber windows since 1994 combining traditional craftsmanship with modern technology to produce a full range of A rated windows and doors. Our windows and doors are made to the highest standards with the best materials in all respects, and come fitted by our own employees. Our customers are delighted by the difference that our window services make to their homes.

As part of our continuous drive to be a cleaner and more environmentally sensitive company, as from January 1st 2012 The Sash Window Workshop will no longer be using any oil based paints in it products and services.

The Sash Window Workshop has recently introduced a new and exciting ‘Classic’ range. It follows the traditional style of windows and doors that you love; however, it is manufactured using the latest technology to improve the quality of the windows and doors as well as improvements in terms of security, heating and noise pollution.

We are proud to announce that The Sash Window Workshop has now passed EN 1279 Part 3, and is 100% compliant with which the European standard for manufacturing of double glazed units.

Part 3 is a particularly tough standard to meet. Furthermore we have also completed air leakage and U value simulations for our traditional casement and sliding sash windows. We are working towards compliance with the requirements set out for the proposed new Part L legislation, which comes into force in October 2010.

This is no mean feat. To make traditional windows in period properties that meet the new standards, while maintaining a “traditional” look is very difficult. We would like to congratulate our team for all their hard work to date and we will update you soon with more developments.
