SASH WINDOWS VERSUS CASEMENT WINDOWS

Sash windows, in contrast to casement windows, do not open through the use of a hinge. Each sash window has got two panels, whereby one or both are able to slide vertically up behind the other. Counterbalances and sash cords keep the window in position permitting the window to be opened to any size gap, without automatically slamming shut. While modern designs of sash windows allow for horizontal (referred to as Yorkshire Sash) or vertical movement, together with offering tilting designs that are much easier to clean, the original sash windows just moved in the one direction.

Exceptional room ventilation capabilities is one of the chief advantages that sash windows have over their casement counterparts. When both window sashes are able to slide it is possible to leave a gap both bottom and top, which produces a convection air flow within the room with warmer air exiting through the upper gap, and cooler air entering through the gap at the bottom. This helps to increase your personal comfort levels and is especially valuable in the summer months in Hadfield.

Increased security for traditional sash windows gives peace of mind for any householder in Hadfield, through the installation of locks, stops, threaded bolt screws and reinforced or double glazing to prevent any potential intruder from opening your windows. Adding a frame to frame lock is one of the most effective forms of security for sash windows in Hadfield. Preventing either sash from being opened, this type of lock involves the fitting of a bolt or bar which anchors the upper sash to the bottom frame. Security is further improved because any potential intruders cannot access it from the outside.

REFURBISHING OR REPLACING SASH WINDOWS IN HADFIELD

If your existing sash windows in Hadfield are damaged or no longer work properly, it's probably time to consider either refurbishing or replacing them before they get even worse. A reliable Hadfield sash window installer will be able to offer you advice and guidance on whether it's possible to refurbish your current windows, or perhaps would be better to swap them for new sash windows.

If a full refurbishment is the chosen course for your sash windows in Hadfield, then for any work to be successfully accomplished, they will have to be taken out of their frames. The frame might need to be tightened up in a special jig if your window panes are draughty and vibrating, or it could be as easy as scraping off layers of paint that have accumulated throughout the years. Any respectable sash window company in Hadfield will be prepared to offer you a preliminary inspection service of your frames and windows, and give their expert advice on the best ways to resolve your current issues. In most instances sash windows can be refurbished or repaired, whether they're suffering from shattered glass, loose corner joints, rotting frames or snapped sash cords. You must remember though, that to all intents and purposes there's often something of a balancing act between what is actually doable and what is more cost-effective in the long run.

There is a range of sash window mouldings on offer for anyone trying to build a sash window or make a repair on an existing one. When minor repairs are required, this is particularly handy, because you can just get the exact parts that you need for the job. Sash window mouldings that are commonly available include: sash bars, transom drips, step cills, parting beads, top & bottom meeting rails, staff beads, stiles, bottom rails, sash stiles, ovolo glass beads and glazing bars.

TYPES OF SASH WINDOWS IN HADFIELD

Looking in sales catalogues and online, at all of the various different types of sash windows that you can buy can get pretty confusing for the average homeowner in Hadfield. If you just think about the three major designs, essentially: Edwardian, Victorian and Georgian, it will be easier. In order to complement the design and style of your home in Hadfield, each of the three has their own modifications.

Sash Window Installation Near Hadfield Derbyshire

Georgian - Traditionally comprises 6 separate panes in the top sash, over 6 separate panes in the bottom sash, (six over six). The Georgian can be adapted to Half-Georgian (six panes in one half, a single pane in the other), or a Georgian-variant that can have different size panes in top and bottom, so long as one of the sashes has six panes.

Victorian - A two over two panel design which may also include a centre bar, or variations like asymmetric (3 over 2, or 2 over 3 etc).

Edwardian - A six over two configuration which is quite similar in design to a half Georgian.

Instead of racking your brain thinking about all these designs, you might find that it's easier to just contact your local Hadfield window company, and ask their guidance on which is the appropriate pattern for your property.

All these sash window patterns can be made for different types of windows, i.e. bay or coupled windows, as well as for all window sizes. There's a 4th major type of sash window which is called the Yorkshire Sash. This style of sash window slides in a horizontal direction, and can incorporate any of the principal elements and variants of the other three types.

It isn't only the design of window that you will need to think about, but also the material that it's made of, because sash windows are made from a variety of materials. Ever since they were originally created over 400 years ago the majority of sash windows have been made out of wood, a material still loved by many. The early versions were made from English oak which was easily available in those times, and more recently they have been constructed with softwoods like European redwood, Scots pine, deal and Douglas fir which are considerably cheaper and are more sustainable.

Aluminium windows became available in the Seventies, and fairly quickly the first uPVC versions began to appear, which because of their high level of security, durability, energy efficiency and low-maintenance attributes, have become increasingly popular in Hadfield.

TRADITIONAL SASH WINDOWS AND PROTECTED BUILDINGS

Sash windows up until recently, only featured one single layer of glass. If your property is in a conservation area, or your house is a listed building, you might have to replace your sash windows with a similar style as your current ones. To improve on the thermal qualities of the original glass, it is now possible using modern developments, to replace it with cutting-edge toughened glass. This permits you to replace your sash windows with no difference in the appearance of the overall building.

A skilled Hadfield sash window company can provide you with the best and most economical materials which are needed to carry out the work, whilst offering guidance on how to stay within local restrictions for your area. When a local council or conservation officer insists on the renovation of existing materials, it might be required to carry out a window by window survey to minimise any impact to the structure. A professional sash window company will happy to do this inspection and prepare the report along with any technical drawings, for your planning officer, including the full details of your restoration project, and if any replacement work is required.

It may be possible to do an upgrade on your sash windows in Hadfield by installing secondary glazing. By installing a vertical sliding secondary glazed panel to the inside of your sash window you can improve thermal efficiency, reduce noise levels and prevent condensation. Even if you're restricted by planning constraints on a listed building, secondary glazing can generally be accomplished to help preserve the original character and appearance of the structure.

Yorkshire Sliders Hadfield

The "Yorkshire Slider" or "Yorkshire Sliding Sash" is the fourth and final kind of sash window, after the better known Georgian, Victorian and Edwardian variations. Some people refer to this style as the "Horizontal Sliding Sash Window", because it perfectly describes the mechanism of this window, with its sashes sliding from side to side (horizontally), in contrast to the other types which all slide up and down (vertically). These windows were originally designed for use in workers cottages, because they were cheaper to make, and are now often seen in period cottages and listed buildings. As the name suggests, they are thought to have originated in the North Yorkshire region.
