Bespoke Timber Sash Windows in Gloucestershire
From our base in Worcestershire, we are only a short trip over the border from Gloucestershire. Incorporating idyllic locations such as Gloucester, Cheltenham, Tewkesbury, old market town Cirencester and part of the Cotswold hills, Georgian and Victorian architecture are very much prevalent in Gloucestershire.
Sash windows are a key feature of many Georgian and Victorian houses, especially the classic arrangement of three panes of glass across by two up on each of two sashes. Be it rural cottages or towering town centre tenements, the sash window remains a mainstay even centuries after many Gloucestershire buildings were constructed.
It’s no secret that older buildings require careful maintenance from time to time. In many cases, timber sash windows are the same age as their building, so problems with rot, swelling or distortion of the woodwork are not out of the question. Whilst cheaper, uPVC or vinyl alternatives for sash windows are available, not only are they much less durable than high quality, bespoke timber windows, but the aesthetics are not sympathetic to the grandeur of traditional buildings.
At Rural Timber Window Company, we are strong believers in traditional timber joinery. By hand crafting glazed window frames from the highest quality sustainable woods, we create a beautiful solution that will last for years and years, compared with cheaper plastic alternatives. We believe in treating traditional architecture with the respect that it deserves, by designing, crafting and fitting period sympathetic timber windows and doors.
We regularly use Accoya wood in our work. This allows us to retain the beauty of traditional wood, but provides a much higher performance and durability as the wood is specially treated. The non-toxic acetylation process permanently strengthens the wood and helps to prevent issues such as rot and insect infestation.
