Sash windows are a timeless classic that have been around for many many years. With their simple design and ease of use, it’s not difficult to see why people are still choosing them as we head into 2022. But if you still need to hear why we love them, here are 5 reasons why.

Simply Stunning

What is the main reason we make most changes in and around our home? To make sure that it looks amazing! Sash timber windows in Derby will surely give you that eye-catching look.
Firstly, timber windows will always give you a better visual appearance than the likes of uPVC and aluminium alternatives.

Suit Any Style Of Home

Each and every home is unique. As are those who live inside. So why not have the style of windows that you want?
The great benefit to having Sash windows is that they can be designed to suit any home. While they originated on country style homes, they were then used in schools, hospitals and office buildings. Now, they can be found even on the most modern of homes, just by simply tweaking the basic design.


Historically, sash windows weren’t considered as secure as some of the alternatives. However, this is certainly no longer the case.
Built with solid timber, and combined with the very best quality fixtures, they can now be seen as one of the most secure styles of window.
You can even include child-friendly latches to ensure that the window is only open a small amount and that little fingers don’t get trapped.

Energy efficient

Sash windows were originally only created in single glazing. After the introduction of double glazing, they were left, almost forgotten. However, they are now back, and available in both double and triple glazing to suit your needs.
Energy-efficient glazing helps to keep your household bills at a minimum. And with energy prices on the rise, this has never been so important.

Perfect For Period Properties

So, we have all seen buildings that shows off the origins of sash windows. Typically older buildings or period properties. Many of these are still sporting single glazed old sash windows. Usually because the owner, or even caretaker, doesn’t want to lose the appearance of the property. With modern, bespoke sash windows, we can create the perfect like for like, but with better glazing options. Allowing you to maintain the appearance of the property, but increase energy efficiency and security.
