  • Period appropriate – helps maintain traditional detail of the home, retaining the value whilst ensuring giving then the desired look and feel.

When to buy new sash windows?

You will find that most wooden sash windows may have seen periods of neglect. The wood has been exposed to the elements which means that they can become rotten or different to use or maintain rather than be a beautiful addition to your home. Repairs can help for a short period, but it’s also possible to fit brand new sash windows. When your windows are stiff or shudder in the frame and they are no longer easy to use they should be changed. This might be the time to get in contact with TSS Joinery where we can take you through your options.
