Depending on the stylings of your home A high quality window can really tie a room together. The type of windows that you choose to have in your home can vary greatly with a wide range of materials to choose from.
If you are currently renovating a Georgian or Victorian property then it is often a great idea to restore any sash windows in the property in order to maintain the traditional stylings rather than opting for a modern window design. Using a more modern double glazed window may take away from the classic aesthetic of the property.

Sash Window Styles
To the untrained eye, there may not appear to be much room for error when replacing sash windows for a property. However, this is actually far from the case. Depending on the period of the property, there are many slight variations in the number of panes on the window:
Edwardian homes would favour ‘six over two’ panes although variation was also present during this period.
The popular choice for Georgian homes was often to have ‘six over two’ although for larger windows it was also popular to have ‘eight over eight’.
The next time you see a property built in the Victorian stylings then you are likely to see sash windows with ‘two over two’, in other instances you may even see sash windows with only one pane.
Sash Window Materials
After deciding on the design of the sash windows it is very important to choose the most appropriate material. What may work for one property may stick out like a sore thumb for another.
Timber Sash Window
For a more traditional property such as a listed building, you will most likely want to install timber sash windows in order to retain the same aesthetic. As well as matching the previous stylings of the property, there are also many other benefits:
Provides an impressive level of insulation.
- Incredibly durable.
- Tends to last a long time.
- Easy to maintain and available in a variety of colours.
uPVC Sash Windows
Often used as a replacement for timber sash windows, uPVC windows tend to have a white finish. Although they can complement a variety of homes, you would often want to avoid installing uPVC sash windows in a listed building as it often does not fit in with the original stylings.
- Very low maintenance.
- Reduces energy usage (note that uPVC is non-recyclable).
- Very affordable
Composite Sash Windows
Composite sash windows can be seen as a compromise, allowing for some of the benefits of either material.
- Still maintaining the class look of a timber sash window.
- Less need for maintenance like uPVC sash windows.
- Incredibly resilient in all weather.
