Thanks to modern window-making techniques, Sash Windows can be made to insulate heat, keep out draughts and sound proof the home.

What Are Complete Boxed Sash Windows?
A boxed sash window is the name for a type of installation that is usually more stately-looking in nature and is designed for much-larger windows. They have a rich history and were especially popular in the country during the Victorian and Georgian periods – hence why many homes of that vintage still have them installed. Their traditional style has never been out of fashion, even newly-built homes are taking advantage of the aesthetic benefits that sash windows provide. Today, as window technology has improved, more modern materials, such as PVCu, can be used in sash window designs, alongside the more-traditional timber. Blending the classic look with modern technology, makes these types of windows perfect for anyone who wishes to maintain the historic look of their home.
Whereas the replacement of an existing sash window involves only the removal of the existing window from its box, complete boxed sash window replacements require the removal of the entire frame from the wall and, in its place, an entire new boxed window is installed. This is the only sure way to replace your entire window fittings, which make for a better, more bespoke window to be installed. This is a method that many people choose, simply to ensure that the window is running at its most optimum – mismatched windows and boxes won’t have the same effects as a custom-built pair will have.
The Benefits of Boxed Sash Windows
When matched with their own custom-made box, sash windows will prove to be much quicker to install, presenting you with your perfect window in no time.
Here are the other benefits that installing a new complete boxed sash window provide:
- Offers a better, stronger replacement
Replacing your entire window fittings with a stronger, modern alternative is the only way to ensure that you will get the best out of your windows.
- Ease of opening
When installed in a custom-made box, new sash windows will prove to be much easier to open from the inside. Installing a new pane of glass inside an existing frame, though cost-effective, simply won’t provide the same ease of opening that a new fitting will provide.
- Maintains interior conditions better
Thanks to the type of glass and the frames they’re used in, brand-new boxed sash window installations are designed to better insulate heat, keeping more of it inside the home on those cold nights. In a similar vein, any hot weather which we may experience, will be kept away from the home’s cool environment.
- Saves the environment, whilst saving you money
Double-glazed sash windows of any kind can save the home around £170 per year, due to their insulating properties. With a modern boxed sash window, you’ll probably save even more, thanks to the secure frame.
- Sound proofing
Brand-new boxed sash windows are able to better provide a barrier to sound coming in (and out) of the home. Ideal if you live in an area that experiences all manner of noise, or if you produce noise in the home and don’t want to disturb the peace outside.
- Condensation reduction
Condensation, the process that sees moisture form on the inside of your window frames, will be eliminated thanks to a brand-new sash window installation possessing the ability to effectively block the process forming.
Aside from the specialist types of glass that are used to offer safety protection, all of our window types are much safer than older alternatives. With double glazing providing a layer of air between two panes of glass, even if the tough glass does break, it won’t affect the other pane. The locking technology present on these modern windows, seals them tighter than older windows, making them virtually impossible to force open from the outside when locked.
