So, you’ve made the decision to invest in new windows, but do you know what style to opt for? And that’s where we come in. You see, we can’t help but have a bit of a thing for UPVC sliding sash windows, and we’re sure you will too once you know the lowdown. Take a look here to find out just why sash windows make for a fantastic choice.
A Touch of Elegance
Who would have thought that windows could make such a difference to the exterior of your home? Well, they do. There is no denying that sash windows flaunt oodles of curb appeal, and if that’s not a good enough reason to invest in them, we’re not sure what is.
Apart from the fact that these sash windows brought elegance to the homes of the rich and famous in the 17th Century. If these windows are good enough for houses such as Chatsworth, Hampton court palace and Kensington palace, they’re no doubt good enough for your home.
A Royal Connection
Everyone loves a royal connection, right? Just think about it. How popular do you think the name Charlotte became this year after the birth of Princess Charlotte of Cambridge? Popular enough to make the top 10 list of girl names, that’s for sure. And it’s no different with any other royal connection.
You’ll no doubt feel proud to have a home that flaunts windows that the royals and aristocracy have installed. Particularly as the royal connection ensured their popularity, as sash windows have become synonymous with wealth and good taste due to their royal connection.
And whether you own a period home or a modern one, sash windows can be installed, giving your property an iconic design feature.
British Weather Friendly
Did you know that the word ‘sash’ originated from the French word ‘chassis’ meaning ‘frame’? Probably not. However, whilst sash windows are linked to France, they are actually suited to the wet climate that (unfortunately) we have here in the UK.
These windows can be closed down to a narrow gap so that you can enjoy good ventilation whilst reducing the risk of rain entering into your home.
That’s right; not only are sash windows aesthetically pleasing, they’re durable too. How? Due to the box that encases the window, sash windows are less likely to distort and rot.
So, if you invest in sash windows, you know you’ll have real value for money as they’ll last for many years to come. This style window is a winning choice if you’re seeking longevity, and let’s face it, who wants to regularly replace their windows?
Easy to Clean
The beauty of sash windows is that you can clean them from inside the house, so when it comes to tackling that chore, you can avoid going outdoors with a ladder.
If only they were self-cleaning too; that really would be the cherry on the cake! However, we’re sure you’ll happily embrace the fact that you can clean windows without having to leave your home.
