Your home may or may not be a listed property, but any house with sliding sash style windows can be said to be of a certain 'period style'.
It is a problem when you are unable to slide the draughty old sashes in the summer to let in air and if they are single glazed it is not unusual to experience ice on the inside panes during the coldest months of winter.
'When thinking of replacement frames however, the cost can be quite daunting', says Steve Thorogood of Admiral Homespace.
Hand made timber sash windows can cost as much as £5000 each, which leads some home owners to look at cheaper modern alternatives. According to Admiral this could prove a costly mistake. Whereas a saving can be made by fitting PVC casement windows, the value of your home can be seriously affected by changing the appearance in this way. Much better to visit a specialist supplier such as Admiral Homespace. Admiral's window showroom near Huntingdon has several styles of traditional sash windows on display in Wood, Aluminium or composite materials. All of the sash windows are very attractive as well as being draught-free and insulated to a very high standard.
