New Sash Window Replacement

Sash windows are the beating heart of any period home. They come in a range of styles and configurations and when they go wrong, they demand an eye for detail and an expert hand. From upgrading cords to fitting new sections, here’s what to consider if you need to restore yours.

The two main styles of sash are Georgian and Victorian . Georgian windows have glazing bars and multiple panes of glass within the moving sashes. Victorian versions have one or two large panes in each moving sash. Later, Edwardian designs featured a mix of the two.

Sash windows can be singular, or form part of a bay. Unlike casement windows (with hinges) and hopper (or tilting) windows, sashes have the advantage of remaining flush to the wall when open and do not impede blinds and shutters. Styles can change with variations in window sills, sash horns, glazing and moulding profiles. These features can help you assess if your windows are likely to be original (or based on original designs) and will inform any decisions around possible repairs and refurbishment.
