The Features of Wooden Sash Windows

Friday, January 06th , 2012

When you are looking to update your home with a touch of period style, wooden sash windows can provide the authentic appearance that you require. Bespoke sash windows from Bygone Collection incorporate a range of traditional features and stylish touches which can help your home to truly stand out. Read on for a summary of the characteristics which your new windows from Bygone Collection will feature.

Stylish Paint Stains and Finishes

Bygone Collection sash windows are finished in white as standard: the classic sash window shade. Should you require a different colour or finish to complement your home, our team can add this bespoke touch to your sash windows, and our high performance microporous water-based coatings are guaranteed to remain looking fantastic for ten years.

Effective Preservation

Whether you are investing in new sash windows to preserve your period property, or are looking to update a more modern home, you will expect your timber windows to last. Our natural, non-toxic Boron timber preservative can protect your windows against rot and fungal attack for a guaranteed thirty years.

Engineered Timbers

Engineered timber can offer unrivalled long-term durability. This helps to ensure that your sash windows are strong enough to withstand the elements, and our 100% FSC-approved European Redwood also helps to guarantee that your windows can be sustainable as well as stylish.

Authentic Design Features

The small style touches of Bygone Windows help to make them indistinguishable from original sash windows. Deep bottom rails, staff bead frame detailing and Georgian bars all add authenticity to our timber windows, whilst our distinctive window hardware – available in chrome, pewter or antique brass – can add the perfect finishing touch to your windows.

Decorative Horns

These decorative touches are found below the top sash, and are one of the features which help to make sash windows so distinctive. Now purely decorative, their purpose was originally to prevent the sash being pulled down too far.

Wooden sash windows from Bygone Collection are a fantastic way to update any home, and can help you to recreate traditional sash window style without ever compromising on authenticity.
