Sash Works recently completed the installation of replacement box sash windows at this Victorian property in Walthamstow, East London.
We were contacted by the homeowner who was looking to remove the existing UPVC double glazed windows that had been installed in the 1990’s. The white UPVC windows with led design stuck on the glass were showing their age and the homeowner found the openers small and repressive. They had decided that they wanted to return to the character style of these Victorian properties by having traditional wooden box sash windows reinstalled.
Having contacted us, we went out to visit the clients at their home to take a look at the existing windows and quote for installing wooden sliding box sash windows of the style of their Victorian property. As a sash window specialist we are able to provide a comprehensive service, so we quoted for manufacturing the sash windows at our workshop, the removal of the old windows, making good the window frames, and the installation of the replacement wooden box sash windows.
All the benefits of modern glazing, all the style of period sash windows
Whilst being able to manufacture and renovate traditional box sash windows, one of the great advantages we are able to offer our clients is the option to have double glazed units in our new traditionally crafted sash window frames, or to have them installed into their existing sash window frames. This means you can have all the benefits of modern energy saving glazing whilst retaining your property’s beautiful character features.
At this property in Walthamstow we installed the replacement sash windows that look very original and match the traditional style of the Victorian properties on this road. The difference with these windows is that they come with the added advantage of 24mm double glazed units fitted in them, which give a maximum U value. The windows were also fully draft proofed – to further improve the energy saving insulation.
Our attention to detail also included architraves and bull nose window boards. The windows were meticulously fitted, adding the period charm back and of course value to the property.
We are very pleased with our wooden sash windows – they are beautifully made. We were impressed with Simon’s craftsmanship and the efficiency with which he fitted them.
