Traditional Sliding Sash Windows

Traditional Sliding Sash Windows

Here at Traditional Timber Windows we specialise in the manufacture and restoration of historic style box sash windows and Yorkshire sliding sash windows. Our historic timber windows are tailored to meet the stringent planning requirements applied to listed buildings whilst subtly incorporating modern standards of efficiency and security.

When required we liaise closely with planning departments and conservation officers to ensure authentic designs are incorporated, including flush fitting joints, solid glazing bars, hand drawn glass and traditional putty installation.

We also offer traditional style windows suitable for new build and replacement where energy efficiency takes preference over authenticity. This allows us to incorporate features otherwise absent such as alternative opening options and a wider choice of glazing.

Exceptional Performance

Designed for long life and low maintenance, our timber sliding sash windows provide the highest level of performance. Manufactured from the highest quality sustainably sourced timer we utilise traditional methods of joinery to ensure you new window is as authentic as possible. Where authenticity is essential we utilise the traditional cord-and-weights mechanism but also offer the spiral balance design should it be your preference.

Quality Materials

We use only the finest quality hand selected sustainably sourced timber and utilise age old methods of joinery to ensure your replacement window is as authentic as possible. Once processed our timber is treated with a water based anti-fungal preservative and base coat prior to being finished with a high quality microporous colour or stain of your choice, and all at no extra cost.
