Traditional Georgian Timber Windows and Door Replacement in Oxfordshire

The Sash Window Workshop specialises in traditional timber windows and doors for period properties, offering a supply and install service in London and Southern England and a supply only service nationwide.

The company were contacted to quote for several timber sash windows and a door for a project in Oxfordshire. The old windows were rotten and needed replacing.

The new windows needed to be as energy efficient as possible, while also being in keeping with the architectural style of the building. Some of the windows were in a better condition than others, so a quote was produced for a mixture of complete new windows, installing new sashes into existing window frames and a complete new door.

After the customer confirmed that they wanted to go ahead, The Sash Window Workshop manufactured the new sash windows and door.

The new windows and door were made using a timber called Accoya, which comes with a 50 year anti-rot guarantee, and were double glazed and draught proofed to help with energy efficiency.

The windows and door were then installed by some of The Sash Window Workshop’s experienced installation team. In total, nine complete new timber windows (including the window frame), one complete new door and ten new pairs of sliding sashes into existing window frames were installed for the customer.

After the work was completed, the client noted that the quality of the windows and doors was excellent and commented that they would like ‘to say how pleased we are with the work that has been carried out for us.’

The Sash Window Workshop are proud to provide high-quality windows and doors, along with excellent customer service, reflected in the fact that roughly half their orders come from recommendations and existing customers.

Established in 1994, The Sash Window Workshop has extensive experience working on a variety of projects for homeowners, contractors, architects, designers, and developers. Some of their previous prestigious clients include Buckingham Palace; The Admiralty Buildings; The Grove Hotel; and The Royal Academy of Music.

The Sash Window Workshop can manufacture a wide range of timber windows and doors suitable for various period properties, including Victorian, Edwardian and Georgian homes. In addition to replacement windows, the company also offers a draught proofing and overhaul service for timber windows.

All new joinery is manufactured in their workshops in Bracknell, Berkshire, where they work hard to replicate as closely as possible the proportions and designs of historic timber windows, whilst incorporating the latest manufacturing techniques.
