TRADITIONALLY MADE WOODEN BOX SASH WINDOWS
DOUBLE GLAZED, DRAUGHT PROOF AND SECURED BY DESIGN
We’ve been around since the 80’s so you’re not leaving anything to chance when you engage with us. From TFL’s Victoria HQ to various country piles and from the RAF Club to Holland Park’s Debenham House and some pretty top notch K&C, Grosvenor Estate dwellings with Dulwich Estate properties and a wealth (too many to recall) of charming period housing stock in London and the home counties in between. Have a look at our front page gallery for more examples of our work.
In this case the southerly aspect had caused damage beyond reasonable repair so the box frames had to be stripped out to the masonry.
Each project we undertake, be it new sashes to existing box sash window frames or complete renewal, we make all our windows in our south London joinery which not only means better fitting items but speedy problem solving. We adhere to traditional hand made joinery standards that ensure absolute authenticity.
We ensure our wooden sash windows are energy efficient meeting Part L Building Regulations when complete renewal is the order of the day. Over the years we’ve innovated and introduced various solutions that make producing traditional authentic period sash windows that conform to today’s environmental demands not only possible but the norm.
…and so were replaced with high performance timber sash windows.
…and after. Just in time for school!

Why timber windows are still the choice for period homeowners
Since 2004 Building Regulations have had to be extended to include period properties. Yet designated conservvation areas protect original features.
As far back as the early 90's Sashpro was developing ways to improve the weather performance of period windows. Our Sash windows have gone further still including vastly improved glazing, perimeter gaskets and fitting methods using insulating materials in order to provide for the demanding environmental challenges that must be met. However, our sash windows (and casements and doors) look exactly like original fenestration.
There really are no compromises to be met as timber windows and doors provide the highest thermal performance naturally, over and above items constructed with upvc and aluminium.
As one of the first firms to address the preservation of sash windows in general, Sashpro has helped to develop a number of innovations that make it possible for the period sash window to remain in existence and be accountable ecologically. We developed a weather proofing system that not only addressed the traditional synonymous combination of the words draughty and sash window, now thankfully rendered apart but we did it completely invisibly. In other words it’s one of those clever devices you’ll never see, so sash windows remain unaffected aesthetically.
