Replacing Sash Windows In Period Homes

Traditional Sash Windows

Traditional sash windows are the main character features of period homes. With designs that have endured the various fashions in window fenestration, the sash window appeals to the conservation homeowner eager to invest in the period character of their home.

Replacing Sash Windows

Replacement of sash windows in period homes has to be one of the most controversial of topics. The conservation lobby will insist on repair where possible, the owner of the house will want to retain the value of the property and keep warm! What to do? If you buy an older home because of its charm, the last thing you want to do is spoil the effect by installing modern looking windows.

What our customers say

“Just a note to thank you for all the help and guidance you gave us when choosing and ordering our sash windows.” Mr J.K Green, London

“I have an older home, and the prospect of renovation was intimidating. I wondered about having to replace all of the existing window units in their entirety because I thought the frames still looked pretty good. Yet I knew the old windows were inefficient and more costly in the long run. So when I heard about the Marvin Sliding Sash, I knew I had found the perfect solution. I got exactly what I wanted and want to thank you for the excellent service your company provided us with in installing our beautiful sash windows.” Mr & Mrs Ward, Surrey
