Basingstoke Double Glazing Showroom, Reading and Hampshire
Whilst sliding sash windows still have the same distinctive look that they’ve had for hundreds of years, they have come a long way since they were first used in properties. You can now purchase double glazed sash windows in modern, durable, low maintenance materials like uPVC and aluminium, so you won’t have to worry about energy efficiency at all.
Many of the negatives that you come across about this type of window, such as the rattling noise they make or the drafts they let in, aren’t something you should let put you off them. Nowadays sash windows are made with the same level of insulation and security as all modern-style windows, so they are still the beautiful traditional style just with modern benefits.
Even if you don’t live in a listed building, sliding sash windows can still complement your home and often, they are able to add some character to more modern newer-builds. This type of window can enhance both the exterior and interior design of any property, and their classic aesthetic belies their energy saving benefits.
Generally speaking, double glazed sash windows will let more natural light into a property than other windows too as they often have much bigger panes of glass. Due to how they open, this type of window is a better option for ventilation as well and when you slide the bottom window up, you will have a bigger unobstructed opening than standard casement windows.
