Reinstating sash windows with new double glazed sashes Fitted into the existing box sash frames. Wimbledon, South West London.
These traditional sash windows in Wimbledon, London had been converted to top hung casement windows. Sash Window Specialist London reinstated and reactivated them to original double-hung operation.
The casement window conversion comprised a subframe fitted into the original box sash window frame. Once this was removed we fitted new window pulley’s and weights to reactivate the counterbalance system.
Bespoke double glazed sashes, that match the rest of the property, were custom made at our sash window workshop in Reading. Crafted using Accoya wood with its 50 year guarantee ensures these modern sash windows are energy efficient and built to last for generations.
Incorporating Low-E, energy-efficient double glazing units that are filled with Argon gas and include a pane of Pilkington K, low-E glass. Low-E glass greatly improves the thermal insulation of double glazing by reflecting heat back into the home.
British made draught seals are built into the frames and ensure the windows do not rattle and slide smoothly.
The draught seals & double glazing built into the windows and doors help to improve the comfort & energy efficiency of this period home. Improved energy efficiency saves money on fuel bills and improves the value of the property.

Wimbledon, Merton, South West London SW19.
The village of Wimbledon was transformed into a Victorian suburb with the arrival of the railways. Nobility and wealthy merchants from London soon began to build large mansions around the Common, away from the noise and smell of central London.
In the second half of the 19th century, Wimbledon experienced a large increase in its population. Terraced houses and villas were constructed along the roads leading to Putney, Merton Park and Raynes Park. Victorian shops such as Elys opened to cater for the new suburban residents.
