Timber Sash and Case Windows
“A bright future to match its glorious history”
The Sash window, with its subtle proportions and elegance, was one of the most important visual elements in buildings of the 18th and 19th Centuries.
By Victorian times it was the most popular form of window, and with the growth of a more enlightened attitude towards conservation and growing appreciation of the craftsmanship and design that went into everyday buildings of those centuries, the sash window once more enjoys a revival.
People appreciate its aesthetic and functional contribution to the house, and they are now restoring and reinstating windows that were removed in less enlightened days.
