Below you'll find a selection of work we have undertaken in the York area, supplying and fitting timber windows.
Yorkshire Sliding sash windows, York
This lovely house is Grade II listed, and is believed to date back to the reign of Charles 1st - early 17th Century.
We supplied and installed Yorkshire sliding sash windows (horizontal sliding sashes in a deep frame) and flush casement windows to replace a mixture of old Yorkshire Sliders and 1970’s casement windows.
The location is Great Ouseburn - between York, Harrogate and Thirsk. Listed Building Consent was required in order to proceed with window replacement and was granted because we were able to meet the strict specification criteria.
We were allowed to use special slim double-glazed units ('Heritage glazing') with a 6mm gap between the panes and the narrow timber glazing bars had to be solid 'through-bars' instead of the usual bonded bars. Every pane of glass is a separate glazing unit held in with butyl-based putty and over-painted to match the timber.
Timber Sliding Sash Windows
I really like this photograph of one of the timber sliding sash windows fitted into a 19th Century stone-built house in York.
You can see that the owners have lovingly restored their home and maintained the character of a Victorian-age house whilst adding the benefits of modern life. The double glazed sash windows will not only be draught-proof (no rattling sashes or warm air leaking out) but will reduce heat loss through the glass by 70%. This means no more cold zones close to the windows and an even temperature across the rooms.
Timber Sash Windows York
This was a lovely job that we carried out using our Slimline Sash windows to transform the exterior appearance and interior space of this extended early-Victorian Terrace house near York. Four fairly nondescript wooden casement windows to the rear of the property were removed and replaced with taller sliding sash windows complete with '6-over-6' glazing bar details.
The beautiful high-ceilings of the kitchen and bedroom were being compromised by the inappropriate use of the short casement windows leaving high internal window cills and insufficient natural light. We removed several courses of brickwork below each window to add just under 1 metre of extra height. The result looks great and really brings the lovely views and plenty of daylight into the rooms. Our timber sash windows were sited approximately 50mm back from the front face of the brick in keeping with the surrounding style.

Cottage-style timber windows
The cottage style window combines the style of a sash window with the benefits of a modern top-hung casement window.
Multi-point locking and lockable 'night-vent' sash positions give excellent century security whilst the carefully designed weather-seal offers the highest protection against the elements. The harder the wind blows the more the sash is pressed against the gasket, ensuring comfort and peace of mind even in the fiercest gales.
These top-hung casements were made with a 'sash horn' detail on the opening sashes to give a look of a sash window but with a slender 68mm frame.
