Win­dow ap­peal

If you are look­ing to re­place your sash win­dows, this hi-tech op­tion could be the an­swer

Many peo­ple want to re­place their old sash win­dows, as they are sin­gle pane, cold, noisy and draughty. How­ever, rip­ping out beau­ti­ful tim­ber win­dows for plas­tic re­duces the kerb ap­peal of the prop­erty — and us­ing sash win­dows with slim­line dou­ble-glazed units is a ‘prob­lem wait­ing to hap­pen,’ says Su­pawood Win­dows’ Mike Jones.

‘They do not meet with Build­ing Reg­u­la­tions for U-value ther­mal ef­fi­ciency and can­not of­fer the life ex­pectancy of a com­pli­ant dou­ble-glazed unit,’ he ex­plains. ‘Many sealed dou­ble-glazed units fail be­cause the win­dows don’t drain prop­erly and are not ven­ti­lated to dry out. To pro­tect the dou­ble-glazed unit, it should ideally be sur­rounded by fresh air. We be­lieve that main­tain­ing the ap­pear­ance of the win­dow, with a com­pli­ant dou­bleglazed unit made of qual­ity ma­te­ri­als, is the best and most com­pet­i­tive so­lu­tion for re­plac­ing sash win­dows.’

Su­pawood Win­dows is a rein­car­na­tion of a sys­tem that has been in ex­is­tence for nearly 40 years. Fo­cus­ing on sash win­dows, the com­pany uses wood as an en­gi­neered prod­uct, us­ing modern tech­niques and high-qual­ity ma­te­ri­als, which brings many ad­van­tages to the in­staller and home­owner alike.

‘As a man­u­fac­turer we can of­fer a be­spoke prod­uct, which is en­vi­ron­men­tally friendly, us­ing ma­te­ri­als that re­quire no more main­te­nance than UPVC plas­tic,’ Mike adds. ‘In fact, we say that with our win­dows, there would be less main­te­nance.’

‘The Su­pawood Win­dows sys­tem is quite unique, giv­ing a so­lu­tion that oozes qual­ity, is easy to spec­ify and in­stall and does not re­quire the costly ser­vices of spe­cialised join­ery trades,’ he con­tin­ues. ‘The qual­ity of the ma­te­ri­als used mean that the win­dows will last and en­hance kerb ap­peal for many years.’

Feed­back from the com­pany’s cus­tomers bears this out. ‘Five years on, we just love our ris­ing sashes. Apart from look­ing so good, they are so smooth to op­er­ate, and they have made the house so much qui­eter,’ writes one cus­tomer from Dork­ing.

An­other cus­tomer, from the West Mid­lands, states: ‘They’re as good as the day they went in, in 1982. I’d like some more, please.’
