Why might I consider Purchasing Sash windows in London from our sash window company?
Here at Core Sash Windows, London, we find there are a number of different reasons that people may be interested in our timber sash windows.
Over time the majority of wooden sash windows, no matter how much you try to repair them, will undoubtedly deteriorate as a result of exposure to the elements. This can unfortunately lead to poor energy efficiency within the home and an increase in energy bills. Sash window repairs can be tricky to undertake which can mean calling in an expert.
Any wood in your glass windows that has been exposed to the extremes of weather can become damaged, with the frames warping around the glazing, and this may make it difficult to open your windows when the weather is warmer. Whilst London sash window repairs can of course be carried out, over time this can become tricker and replacement timber windows may become a more appropriate solution.
If you have been considering replacement windows for this reason but wanted to avoid UPVC sash windows in favour or the more traditional timber framed sash window, perhaps with a better type of glazing, then we can help you with this.
It is entirely possible to replace your sash windows with new timber framed ones that will keep the style, design and character of your home. Our double-glazed timber units are a great solution to keeping the cold out whilst not detracting from the more traditional feel of your windows and doors.
