Matthew & Nathan Smith

What are the benefits of sash windows?

Sash windows have a timeless appeal that complements a wide range of property types. However, the benefits are more than aesthetic. Sash windows can be opened from the top or bottom to ventilate your property and circulate fresh air. Sash windows, also known as double hung windows, are named after the sashes that allow them to slide open. These sashes are hung with cords on both sides rather than being hinged.

Are sash windows Georgian or Victorian?

The history of sash windows actually extends back a lot further than these periods – the earliest traces of these windows date back to the 1400s but we would recognise their current form from the 1600s onwards. After the Great Fire of London in 1666, sash windows dramatically expanded in popularity due to a decree that required timber to be set back from the façade of the building to reduce the risk of fire spread. The style remained popular and became ubiquitous in the early Victorian period.

Do sash windows add value?

Yes, adding new double-glazed sash windows will enhance your property’s kerb appeal and add value. The insulating properties of their glass units will also help you to save on your energy bills. The classic style of sash windows is a big draw for potential buyers and can add extra value if a traditional design is used.

What is a casement window?

A casement window is a type of window that is attached to its frame by one or more hinges at the side. It opens outward, typically using a crank mechanism, allowing it to swing open like a door. Casement windows are often used in residential buildings and are popular for their versatility, ease of operation, and ability to provide good ventilation. They can be made of various materials such as wood, vinyl, or metal, and they come in different styles and sizes to fit different architectural designs and preferences.

Do casement windows add value?

Yes, casement windows can add value to a home due to their energy efficiency, great ventilation, modern appearance, ability to let in more natural light, and durability. They are generally considered a desirable feature that can contribute positively to a home’s resale value.

What type of timber do you use?

As standard our windows are made from softwood with hardwood sills, the softwood we use is a kiln dried redwood which is more thermally efficient generally than most hardwoods, the sills are always made from hardwood because this is the area that’s most susceptible to the weather, and at risk of decay, so that’s made from Meranti hardwood. As standard all of our external doors are made from Utile hardwood, this is our preferred hardwood because it’s slow grown and very long lasting and takes the paint very well. We can manufacture doors and windows from any timber that you like because all of our products are made completely bespoke for our customers and of course all of our products and all of our timber comes from FSC or PEFC certified forests so it’s sustainable and good for the environment.

Can customers come and see our products?

Yes, whilst we always go out to visit our clients we really like it when a client comes to visit us in one of our showrooms, and we encourage you to make an appointment to come and take a look at our different products, and the different options available to you. Our main showroom is in Leamington Spa, we’ve also have other showrooms around London and the South of England. You can come and see us at our workshop, the guys love it when you come to visit them and see how your joinery is put together and the different options available to you, it gives them the chance to see the customers who they’re putting in all their work and effort for, so we really like that as well.

Do you employ commission-based salespeople?

No, we don’t employ any commission-based sales people, in order to receive a quote our process is to visit your home, have an open and honest discussion with you about what you’re looking for and exactly what we can provide, we’ll take any notes, window measurements, and any other custom details with us, as well as photos, and return to the office in order to draw up a written quote.  This written quote will be provided roughly two to three working days later via email, we don’t provide any quotes in the home because we don’t want to pressure anyone into purchasing our products, ultimately we’re looking to satisfy your needs and to ensure that our products do this, and by employing sales based commission staff we wouldn’t achieve this.

Are there any restrictions to my options?

Everything that we make is completely bespoke and made to your exact specifications, so we manufacture everything and we’re in complete control of the process from taking a bare plank of wood and turning it into a window or a door, fully finished, and in your home. So because we’re in control of the whole process we can change absolutely anything to suit your needs, whether that’s changing the design and style, or opening style of the door or window, or changing the glass so that part of it is sandblasted or obscure, having safety glass or acoustic glass, or even in front doors and bathrooms we can do different designs or patterns on the glass. Also, when it comes to things like paint we can use any design and paint brand that you like, whether that be Farrow & Ball or Little Greene, or even just a RAL colour if that’s what you’re looking for. And then when it comes to ironmongery and things like that, we have our own ironmongery catalogue that you can choose from, or if you’ve found something online that you like the look of we can use that as well. Often we have customers that have a huge variety of different design ideas, and we work with them to find the one that suits them the best, and then make that a reality.

Do I need planning permission?

That’s a question we get asked a lot by our customers looking to make changes to the exterior of their homes, and it can vary a lot, so we won’t be able to give you a definitive answer in this section. Most of our customers don’t need planning permission to replace their windows. However, it’s difficult for us to say right now whether you do or don’t; it can vary depending on which council you’re in, whether you’re in a conservation area, whether you’re in a flat, whether your conservation area is in an Article 4 direction, and whether you’re in a listed building. If any of those criteria apply to you, contact us, and we can give you a definitive answer as to whether or not you need planning permission to replace your windows. If you do, we can help you through the process by giving you the information you need to do it yourself, or if you’d prefer us to, we can handle the whole thing for you.

What happens on the day of installation, how do you protect my home?

On the first day of installation our team will arrive at our warehouse to first load up all your joinery and the materials required to carry out your work, they’ll then head to your job and when we first arrive the most important thing for us to do is to properly protect the floors and walkways, we use a combination of dustsheets and Correx boards, we understand that in the vast majority of cases we’re working in clients’ homes where they already live and we make sure that our fitters are very respectful with this. We keep you updated throughout the day with how installation is going, and once everything is finished it’s all packed away and our fitters will vacuum up behind them to make sure that everything is clean and tidy and left perfectly as it should be. We also completely remove all rubbish, which we then return to our yard to dispose of responsibly.

What happens after installation, do you offer any guarantees?

After installation we will send you out your guarantee paperwork, with all of our products and services we offer a comprehensive, minimum, ten year guarantee which is insurance backed, that will be sent out shortly after the installation is carried out and you may also receive a Certass certificate depending on what work you’ve had carried out to confirm that your installation complies with building regulations. We use the highest quality materials manufactured by skilled craftsmen using centuries old techniques and installed by experienced carpenters, and that’s why we’re happy to give these extensive guarantees.

What certifications do you offer?

Leamington Timber Windows offers two types of certification, the first is our own ten-year guarantee, backed by our insurer, all our clients receive this regardless of the job carried out. You will receive your Leamington Timber Windows ten-year guarantee at the end of the month in which we have completed the work. The second type of certification we provide is a Certass certificate, Certass is an independent body that runs a competent person’s scheme and it is authorised by the government, by having a Certass certificate it means you do not need to apply to your local council for building control for the works which we have carried out. Certass provides certificates within two to three weeks of us completing the work by post, it’s important you keep both certifications, both your Leamington Timber Windows guarantee, and your Certass certificate because these will be required by your solicitor if you’re thinking of selling your property.

What paint options do I have?

All of the paints that we use are spray paints, we use this because it gives a nice perfect smooth finish and you don’t get the brushstrokes or paint runs that you can get with hand applied paints. As standard our prices include white gloss or white satin, which most of our customers do go for, however, you do have the options of choosing a Farrow & Ball, Dulux, Little Greene or other paint brand and we can colour match any of these paints, you can use it either just having that finish on the internal to match your internal woodwork, and having white on the external, or you can mix and match however you like. Because all of our products are completely bespoke, all of the paints can be uniquely matched to what you want.
