How Easy is it to Replace Wooden Sash Windows?
You could find it easy to replace wooden sash windows – but some homeowners find it hard. With their authentic quality and classic designs, letting go of timber windows can be tricky for many. However, replacing them can lead to significant benefits for your home – old wooden windows could be letting up to 10% of your home’s energy escape your living space.
So, if you have wooden sash windows, you may only want to replace them if they still have the same authentic look. While you could choose timber sash windows again, modern designs still haven’t made a huge leap forward in performance and durability. While your windows will look good, they’ll also need a lot of maintenance. As a result, your windows may not save you money, and they certainly won’t save you time.
However, if you want to replace wooden sash windows, Roseview can help. As the UK’s leading provider of timber-alternative sash windows, we create hand-crafted sash windows that have uPVC frames with authentic woodgrain finishes. As a result, our windows look authentic, but they perform like brand-new designs. And, with a huge choice of designs, they can suit any home’s style!
Reasons to Replace Wooden Sash Windows
Wooden sash windows are a classic design – however, many of them are stuck in the past. Unfortunately, while timber looks great, it’s not a material that’s well suited to modern windows. Cheap, old timber isn’t weather-resistant, meaning wind and rain can damage the wooden frames over time. As a result, the window can become weaker and less efficient.
Water and wind can cause natural dents in the timber to expand into cracks, creating space for cold air to rush into your home. When this happens, your home’s heat can escape in the same direction, meaning your home becomes less and less comfortable. Not only that, weaker windows are more prone to problems like condensation, and they could break more easily as a result of a random impact or under stress and pressure.
Because of all these issues, wooden sash windows don’t last as long as many homeowners would like. After only a few years, you may need to take them in for repairs, which can be costly and time-consuming. But, instead of repairing your designs, why not replace your wooden sash windows with new ones? You’ll reset the clock on your home’s windows and make a better, more long-term investment.
Ways to Replace Wooden Sash Windows
However, wooden sash windows can be difficult to replace. It’s because few modern windows can replicate the authentic style of wooden sash windows, which sit flush within the frame and have elegant timber joinery. As a result, plenty of people try their best to preserve the designs they already have rather than take the risk of switching them out for brand-new ones.
For example, you could opt to add secondary glazing to your wooden sash windows. Secondary glazing covers your existing window, effectively creating a double glazed unit. Because of this, you can get better insulation and security, all while protecting your old window from bad weather. Additionally, you could elect to get a modern sash window, but it may not suit your home’s existing architecture.
With Roseview, you can get the best of both old and new windows. Our wooden sash windows replicate authentic timber joinery but have uPVC frames that are far more durable for your home. Because of this, your new window could be highly efficient, fully weatherproof, and long-lasting for your property. And, for decades to come, you can benefit from an authentic window people will think is wooden!
