Things to consider before replacing sash windows

Whether you live in a period property or a home that is suffering with draught, it may be high time to replace your sash windows. However, before you begin the process there are things to consider before doing so. As one of the best teams for sash window restoration Northumberland has, we wanted to discuss these with you.

Think about which material is best. Many do stay with the timber option as people like the classic aesthetic. It can prove to be a better option for lasting restorations too. uPVC windows are another option, however we still recommend you research into this as the material sometimes doesn’t suit some period homes. There can be some downsides to it as well including potential discolouration over time.

Picking the right style is paramount. You will often find period properties have their own style. In order to make sure your home’s period style isn’t flawed, you need to make sure the sash windows are properly restored. Choosing David Humble to handle this will ensure a high quality finish, all the while still making sure it is conscious of the period.

You need to determine if you require a full restoration. The amount of work that is required will affect the cost and the time the project will take. Often the windows are relatively well kept and therefore, for example, don’t need the parting beads re-installing. This can lower the cost.

It is highly important to keep the period detailing of sash windows as they are a famous feature in British architectural history. We are dedicated to preserving this heritage. That is why we carry out our restorations correctly; paying attention to all parts such as the lower sash, rail, stiles, upper sash, parting beads, and meeting rail.
