Wooden Sliding Sash Windows

Wooden sliding sash windows have been around since the 17th century when pulleys and weights were first applied to timber sashes. They were continually used throughout the 18th, 19th and 20th century, all the way through to today. Obviously, they have evolved a lot; the quality of glass used to be much worse and so the windows were often made up of smaller panes and were thinner. As time went on, it was possible to use larger panes and thicker glass enabled these larger panes to be just as durable as smaller.

Stained glass was also used as a decorative feature, and whatever was in fashion when it came to property design was possible. Even though this kind of window design has been around for a long time, it doesn’t make it dated. Wooden sliding sash windows can go with any style of house, and can be just as secure as any other kind of more modern window. For those with period properties, many prefer to keep this design in order to maintain the overall look of the building; so that the windows are in keeping with the age of the house.

Sliding sash windows are of a straightforward design and can last a long time if regularly maintained. Glass and timber should be regularly cleaned, painted and/or treated. The cords should be checked on a regular basis for weaknesses and either repaired or replaced if needs be by people trained and experienced in this kind of window.

As with everything, wooden sliding sash windows have a shelf life and sometimes they will just need replacing. There are a number of companies specialising in wooden windows Surrey wide, and just because you need new windows that doesn’t mean that you need to go with a more up to date design.
