Well-crafted, custom-made wooden windows will always add value and ‘pavement presence’ to every home, whether it’s a new build or restoration. Quality wooden windows deliver other benefits, including reduced heating costs, less time and expense on maintenance, counteraction to noise pollution and improved home security.

One of the questions we often get asked is ‘Can you replace sash windows with double glazing?’, so we’re going to answer this today.

Can You Replace Sash Windows With Double Glazing?

Can You Replace Sash Windows With Double Glazing? Put simply, the answer to this question is YES, but it will require a team of craftsmen with years of experience. Timber Window And Door Solutions’ luxury timber sliding sash and case windows combine the traditional feel of a sash window and modern materials with efficiency and sophistication. Vertical sliding sash windows, or ‘box sash’ windows, have top and bottom sashes that slide. The weight of both sashes is counter-balanced by steel weights inside the sash boxes. For more fitting options, a spiral balance allows for a slimmer frame profile. We even make triple glazed sash windows for people looking for ultra performance and sound stability.

Renaissance Of Wood Windows

In recent years, there has been a real renaissance in beautiful wooden window frames as builders and homeowners rediscover the benefits of natural materials over man-made. Thanks to new materials, processes and paint finishes, modern wooden windows now enjoy a far greater lifespan and less ongoing maintenance. But technological advances are only part of the story.

Expert Understanding

For genuine quality and peace of mind, wooden windows need to be handcrafted by master carpenters and installed by fitters who understand and respect the material. Timber Window and Door Solutions takes pride in offering one of the best timber window systems on the market today with Industry leading warranties.
