The Perfect Sash From FrameXpress

For the most part sash windows complement the appearance of traditional properties and they are a style which many frameXpress customers are incorporating more frequently into renovation projects.

Renovating and fitting sash windows is a skill that requires installers to have professional affiliations or accreditations, which reflect the craftsmanship involved in restoring period homes in accordance with Building Regulation stipulations.

Most recently frameXpress was contracted to supply all new sash windows for a renovation project in Essex where it was stipulated by the local authority that aesthetics must match the style of the property and surrounding area.

For the end users it was considered a major investment in a property that they wished to fully restore before looking at selling in a housing market that is starting to look buoyant.

Sash windows were introduced from France originally in the mid 17th century, after the Restoration period and have become increasingly popular as a style since then.   Early sashes had the box frames exposed and finished with an architrave surround, which was set flush with the outer face of the wall. This was a style that remained common in house design until the mid 18th century before being revived again in the early 20th century.

Since then the evolution of the sash has introduced many styles of window including those with sash horns and less panes, which became popular from around 1840 onwards.

Ian Davis Sales Manager frameXpress comments, “Today, replacement sash windows make a stunning finish to period homes and it does not have to be a hugely expensive investment to give windows a new lease of life.

For modern homeowners it is also all about investment in a property that they are lovingly restoring to a former glory, and as such they want only the best in terms of appearance, thermal performance and ease of use.”

In the south of the country it is noticeable how sash windows are increasing in popularity, with large-scale refurbishments being completed such as those of the Savoy and Connaught hotels.  Equally homeowners in general want to retain a little old world period charm and authenticity, which is proving a very positive selling point for frameXpress customers.

Ian Davis concludes, “Our range lends itself well to restoration projects and enables customers to broaden their business, giving them scope to offer a little more than just the standard window styles and colours.  Certainly, there is no shortage of enthusiasm regarding the benefits of installing sash windows.”

frameXpress fabricates only the very best in quality windows, doors and conservatories from the company’s head office in Telford that encompasses a 30,000 sq.ft production facility.  Competitive pricing together with years of manufacturing experience gives customers complete peace of mind.
