SASH WINDOWS VERSUS CASEMENT WINDOWS

The main difference between sash windows and casement windows, is that sash windows don't use a hinge to open, they slide. Each sash window has two parts, whereby one or both are able to slide vertically behind the other. To keep the window in place there are counterbalances and sash cords that allow the window to be opened at any size of gap for differing ventilation requirements. Classic, old fashioned sash windows do not move in any other direction than vertically, but more modern day versions allow for vertical or horizontal (referred to as Yorkshire Sash) movement, and also offering tilting designs which are far easier to clean.

Enhanced room ventilation is one of the important advantages that sash windows have over their counterparts. When both window sashes can be moved you can leave gaps both top and bottom, which generates a convection air flow within the room with warmer air exiting through the upper gap, and cooler air entering through the lower gap. This gain is especially valuable in sunny summer months and helps to improve personal comfort levels around your property in Hale.

TYPES OF SASH WINDOWS IN HALE

It can be confusing looking at a sales catalogue or online at all of the various different styles of sash windows which are on offer. It is much easier to think that there are just three main designs: Georgian, Edwardian and Victorian. Each of these 3 patterns has their own variants which can be adapted for the style of your house in Hale.

Sash Window Installation Near Hale Greater Manchester

Georgian - With traditionally six independent panes in the top sash, over six independent panes in the bottom sash, the "six over six" Georgian style sash window is easy to spot. The Half-Georgian is a modification of this style with 6 panes in one half, and a single pane in the other, while another Georgian-variant sees a sash window which can have different sized panes in lower and upper, as long as one half of the window numbers six panes.

Victorian - A 2 over 2 panel design which may also incorporate a central bar, or versions like asymmetric (two over three, three over two etc).

Edwardian - A six over two style that's similar in design to the Half-Georgian.

It is much easier to ask your your local sash window installation company for their recommendations on the best design to suit your house in Hale.

Various window sizes, plus bay and coupled windows, can be made in all these sash window designs. There's in fact another main kind of sash window, which is referred to as the Yorkshire Sash Window. Integrating with any of the three principal designs and their adaptations, this style is a horizontally sliding window.

It's not only the design of window that you'll have to look at, but also what material it is made out of, because sash windows are made from several different materials. The classic sash windows from the seventeenth century, and for most of the last 400 yrs were made out of wood. Most of the modern timber sash windows are manufactured from sustainable softwoods like European redwood, Douglas fir, deal and Scots pine, while the early windows were mostly crafted from English oak, of which there was a plentiful supply in those far distant times.

Aluminium windows were developed during the 70's, and fairly quickly the first uPVC sash windows started to appear, which due to their durability, high level of security, low-maintenance qualities and energy efficiency, became ever more popular in Hale.

There's a fourth form of sash window that is perhaps not so widely recognised as the traditional Edwardian, Georgian and Victorian patterns, and this is termed the "Yorkshire Slider" or "Yorkshire Sliding Sash Window". Since the sashes slide from side-to-side (horizontally) as opposed to vertically as with the other types, this kind of window is sometimes referred to as the "Horizontal Sliding Sash Window". These windows were originally designed for use in workers cottages, because they were cheaper to make, and are now frequently seen in listed buildings and period cottages. As the name suggests, they are believed to have originated from the North Yorkshire area.
