Sash windows have changed with the times
What most of us recognise as sash windows, are in fact vertical sliding sash windows. They offer very effective ventilation for rooms when used as designed - with the top and bottom opened together - and add aesthetic value and practicality to most homes.
Traditional, old, timber sash windows have elegance and period charm, but often suffer from rot, painted up cords and sashes, weights no longer balanced, and lack of effective security or protection for young children.
But, with Henry James Sash Windows, you can have the charm without the nightmares. New materials such as PVCu, pre-finished timber and aluminium have eradicated the need for redecoration. There is a tilt-in option handy for maintenance and cleaning, plus improved security, including sophisticated, yet easy to use, cam locks and double glazing to resist intrusion.
There are restrictors to prevent small children from falling out and fire escape options to allow exit in emergency. Internal balance systems have no external cords for careless or inexperienced hands to damage or paint over. Henry James sash windows will look good and function smoothly for many, many years.
Charm Meets Practicality
You can now enjoy the traditional style, conform to the council's planning recommendations, have money left in your pocket and re-learn what home owners knew in the past - that sash windows, when used properly, are in fact extremely efficient at cooling a room down - and enjoy what people in the past could not have known, that sash windows don't have to be draughty.
At Henry James, we produce very high quality products and we specialise in sash windows. We don't sell products we haven't tried and tested, so you will not be left with an unsatisfactory window. And every product we sell is guaranteed for ten years.
