See below for our top picks on Sash Windows London.
Types of Sash Windows
There are a few different materials that can be used for sash windows and they can be built in a wide range of styles. Here are my top styles for sash windows in London.
UPVC Sash Windows
UPVC is an amazing invention and it not only looks great, but lasts for a long time with very little to no maintenance. UPVC is a type of plastic which is strong and durable and there are many types of windows frames that are built using UPVC. UPVC is used for sash windows because of its low cost, low maintenance and long life span. If you’re going for value for money then UPVC sash windows are the best choice for you.
Timber Sash Windows
Timber sash windows are, as their name suggests, made from high quality, sustainable timber. The beauty of timber framed windows is they have the genuine traditional feel of heritage windows. Timber sash windows are the bespoke end of the market and are often used to replace worn or damaged windows on heritage properties. Many people prefer timber frames, and there are lots of reasons why, but there are a couple of downsides. The main downside to timber framed sash windows is that they have to be painted. Ideally they would be painted regularly, every few years or so to prevent water penetrating the wood. A solid coat of paint keeps the timber protected from anything that can cause rot, but over time paint can wear off, so if not repainted the timber frames can fall into disrepair.
Aluminium Sash Windows
Aluminium is a super strong material for windows frames and has the added bonus of being light weight. Aluminium sash windows require very little maintenance and have a long life span. They can either be painted or left as a metal finish, but most of our clients choose to have them painted. The only drawback of painting aluminium sash windows, is once they are painted they need to be repainted every few years to avoid flaking. But if you’re looking for a high end sash window frame with a long life and very little maintenance, then aluminium sash windows are the way to go.
