Sustainable Timber Windows and Doors

With the growing awareness of sustainability and the importance of being environmentally friendly, clients are increasingly looking for sustainable businesses.

The Sash Window Workshop are an award-winning company who specialise in traditional timber windows and doors. They use Accoya as standard, which is sustainably sourced and comes with a 50 year anti-rot guarantee.

The company are also working hard to decrease their carbon footprint, having successfully reduced emissions by 39% between 2019 and 2021. Both reports were carried out by Carbon Footprint Ltd, who help businesses conduct independently verified reviews of their carbon emissions.

The Sash Window Workshop have also recently achieved Carbon Neutral Plus status, meaning that they have offset 125% of their remaining carbon emissions. The company believe they are the first timber window and door company to achieve this and offset more carbon than they are emitting.

Established in 1994, The Sash Window Workshop have extensive experience working on a variety of projects on period properties, including Victorian, Edwardian and Georgian homes, and can comply to Conservation Area or listed building requirements when necessary.

They offer a supply and installation service of sash windows, casement windows, external doors and secondary glazing across London and Southern England, with a supply only service across Great Britain. In addition to replacement windows, the company also offers a draught proofing and overhaul service for timber windows in London and the South.

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.

New windows and doors come double glazed as standard, and are draught proofed during installation, to improve energy efficiency. The company can also manufacture single glazed windows, when required.

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

The company were recently commissioned to upgrade the windows in an Edwardian property in Surrey to be double glazed and improve energy efficiency.

The customer opted for replacing the sashes, while keeping the existing window frames, meaning that a high level of accuracy was vital to ensure that the windows operated smoothly.

The new sliding sashes were manufactured by The Sash Window Workshop in Bracknell, Berkshire. They were fully factory finished in the workshop, before being installed by the company’s experienced fitters. Upon completion, the customer was very happy with their upgraded windows.

The Sash Window Workshop are FENSA registered, FSC certified, Safe Contractor accredited and members of the British Woodworking Federation. The company are also members of the Which? Trusted Trader scheme.
