Our Website

A look at how our website has evolved since its launch in 1994. 
Our friendly, honest approach remains unchanged and our site is still produced ‘in-house’ by Simon, featuring photos taken by our own craftsmen.

Our ‘D.I.Y. Guide to Replacing Sash Cords’ shortly followed by ‘History of the Box Sash Window’is how Sash Window Specialist started.
