Autumn is the perfect time to think about improving both the appearance and the warmth of your home by investing in a new window. If you want to add a stunning traditional look to your home, wooden sash windows are one of the best styles to choose.
Wooden sash windows: perfect for creating a traditional aesthetic
When it comes to adding a traditional look to your home, wooden sash windows are the perfect type of window to choose. They have been used in homes across the country for hundreds of years, in all sorts of properties: from grand mansions to country cottages. This makes them well suited to adding a traditional touch to practically any style of home.
Here are a few of the benefits that wooden sash windows can add to your home.
1. Authentic aesthetics
Wooden sash windows are one of the oldest styles of window on the market, making them perfect for adding authenticity and a classic look to properties.
Crafted from traditional designs by our team of expert joiners, our wooden sash windows stay true to the appearance of those used in Georgian and Victorian architecture. Our designs utilise a number of unique period features such as astragal bars, carved sash horns and metal hardware so that you can make your new sash window look as authentic as possible.
2. Exceptional thermal performance and energy efficiency
Many homeowners are needlessly put off from investing in a wooden sash window because they worry about the thermal performance of the overall timber unit. Modern wooden sash windows are created with energy efficiency and warmth in mind, and actually outdo the performance of aluminium and uPVC models when it comes to energy efficiency and keeping a home warmer for longer.
3. Excellent weatherproofing and durability
We can even make wooden sash windows resistant to insects and decay by using Accoya wood in their construction. Accoya is a specially treated type of softwood that repels pests and is resistant to water penetration. This makes it incredibly durable and perfect for use in modern wooden windows where performance and longevity is key.
