Modern Sash Windows Can Save Time and Money

19th January 2021 |


White uPVC Window

Sash windows have been popular in homes since the 13th century.

Sash windows have been popular in homes since the 13th century, when they were little more than sliding wooden panels. Although many trends come and go, sash windows have remained an elegant staple for both modern and period homes. Many people make the mistake of replacing worn sash windows with a casement fitting, assuming there is no modern alternative for a sash. However, whether you have a period or modern home, you can update the place with some modern sash windows.

Vintage Style With Modern Technology

Aesthetically, modern sash windows look similar to their traditional counterparts, and you might not notice the difference immediately. Old fashioned sash windows are made from wood, which if left untreated can rot easily. With developments in modern technology, you can now keep the sash effect that you love, allowing you to bring your home into the 21st century, without losing any of the original features.

Whether you live in a period property or a modern house, there is no update more welcome than one that can help you to save money on your energy bills and keep your home warmer. Sash windows from Majestic Designs feature warm edge thermal spacer bars and argon gas sealed units and are rated A+14 on the WER (Window Energy Rating) scale, which means that they are as energy efficient as possible.

Try a Change of Colour

Chartwell Green Sash Windows

Just like traditional wooden windows, you can choose the colour of your modern sash windows.

When you update your sash windows, you might want to consider how an aesthetic update could give your home a new look. Just like traditional wooden windows, you can choose the colour of your modern sash windows, and what’s more, you won’t need to repaint!

Majestic Designs can offer you a whole range of hard-wearing colours to match your home’s surroundings or its architectural style. Our range of heritage colours gives you plenty of choice to match your own taste, including Chartwell Green, Irish Oak and several woodgrain-effect finishes. Even our aluminium casement windows can be powder coated for a bespoke colour finish that provides incredible resilience against all weathers and should last for over 20 years.

Modern Sash Windows Can Transform a Modern home

If you live in a modern home, but always dreamed of living in something older, sash windows could be the perfect solution. Providing an instant aesthetic update and a nod to the past, sash windows are a great way to get the look of living in a traditional home whilst enjoying all the benefits of living in a modern property.

If you’re unsure about how sash windows could look in your home, speak to one of our friendly sales advisors who will be able to visit your home with samples, so that you can get more inspiration.

Enjoy a More Relaxed Approach to Maintenance

Once you install modern uPVC sash windows, you will come to realise how much time it takes to maintain wooden sash windows. Wooden sash windows need consistent cleaning and regular maintenance to protect from rot, which could affect your property.

Not only is this time consuming, but it can also be a costly endeavour. Replacing your wooden sash windows with a modern uPVC alternative from Majestic Designs could save money and time on regular maintenance. Other than wiping with a damp cloth, our uPVC frames are maintenance free and come with a 10 year guarantee, giving your peace of mind and a little extra time.
