1. A timeless feature
Sash windows constitute a characterful addition that will provide a touch of charm to any property. This aesthetically pleasing feature has stood the test of time and continues to add style to all types of properties. The consistent demand for such windows can in fact increase the value of your property as it is an appealing feature for most buyers.
2. Insulating properties
Timber sash windows have great insulating properties. In fact, wood is commonly used as a material for window frames due to its insulating abilities as well as its durability. Therefore, timber sash windows can not only help you save on your energy bills, but they can also last for centuries. Modern sash windows are also draught-proof, which helps keep your home warm and cosy in the colder winter months.
3. Bespoke design
The design of sash windows can be adapted to suit your own style requirements. The wooden parts can be carved, painted and / or stained to match the style of your home beautifully. This versatility is particularly desirable as standard windows do not present many design options (particularly windows with plastic frames). The options are endless to customise the timber frame to match your own taste.
Timber sash windows have excellent structural integrity. The strong fibres and cellulose within the wood can withstand ever-changing weather conditions for years. This means that your timber sash windows will last for years to come and therefore make them a great investment. Timber can in fact last as long as any other materials typically used in the construction industry.
5. Environment friendly
Sash windows with a timber frame are the most environmentally friendly types of windows. This is due to the low amount of energy used to process, produce and transport such windows. The longevity of timber also means that the materials can be reused or recycled – your sash window is in fact most likely to have been made with recycled materials.
Timber sash windows are desirable home features that stand the test of time not only in terms of style, but also in terms of durability. The versatility of design combined with the great insulating properties make it the perfect type of window to add a touch of charm to your home as well as keeping it warm. The added plus of sustainability and friendliness to the environment make them a great choice, not only for you in the present, but also for our planet in the future.
