The sliding sash window was extremely popular from its introduction in Georgian times and continued into the Victorian era. Its popularity declined at the start of the 20th century due to mass manufactured cost- effective steel & timber casement windows, and issues with the inherent draughts and rattles of original sash windows.
In recent years there has been a revival of interest into timber sash windows. An awareness of the sustainability of timber and incorporating modern energy efficient technology into the traditional designs has meant timber sash windows are being used in new builds and also replaced in period properties.
We create traditional timber sash windows using time proven joinery methods but incorporating modern techniques and materials that allow our windows to stand up to every requirement of modern living.
Also referred to as ‘Yorkshire Sliding Sash Windows’ due to their origin, these windows are used when the opening dimensions are wider than tall, where vertical sliding sash windows would look squat in appearance. Historically, these windows are found in cottages as window openings have more horizontal proportions due to low ceiling heights.
