Examples of our sash windows

Testimonial

2 years ago, we had 10 new wooden sash windows made and installed. This was after initially approaching 10+ companies and meeting up with 3. As I type this they are back at our house replacing the whole of our front elevation being 4 sash and 6 casement windows, so as you can tell we think their windows are great …. PS I am a Chartered Surveyor and would not recommend lightly.

From day one TWCC were impressive providing sound advice and a detailed quotation with options. Their products and quality workmanship are second to none and their fitters are highly skilled and leave little mess behind. Keep up the good work – our house looks better and is much warmer!.

Mr Vasdekys, W12

Thank you for creating and installing such good quality windows to meet our ever-changing designs. We are very happy with the results and are already recommending you to friends and family.

Mr Rock, N10

I had delayed replacing the original windows to my Edwardian house as I feared losing the fine detail and elegance, but The Traditional Window & Conservatory Company were the answer!. They replicated the exact appearance of the original windows–but what an improvement to both the heatand sound insulation!!. I am delighted! The company employees and representative were also polite,helpful and efficient. Thank you.

Before installation rooms and walkways are sheeted up and the old windows are removed from site and disposed of. Our expert fitters will ensure the replacements are hand finished and trimmed off with internal stub sills, architrave and period trim to mirror the originals. The immediate walls surrounding the window are decorated where applicable to complete the finished look.

Timber

Stable timbers that enhance paint coating lifespan is the key to the long life of a window because if the coating remains intact, the window will last indefinitely.

Glass

Glass & Glazing TypesGlazed to ‘A’ rated specification mainly consisting of 20mm Optiwhite glazing double glazed sealed units (4-12-4). This provides a centre pane U-value of 1.2w/m2k (the lower the number, the better the thermal insulation); The use of OptiwhiteTM glass helps to provide high visual clarity and purity of colour as there is no green tinge associated with some double glazing. This glass also gives more solar heat gain since it allows more heat from the sun, which can save on energy bills during the winter months.
Other Glazing
  • Toughened glass for safety
  • Laminated glass for security and safety
  • Acoustic glass to reduce sound transmission from road traffic, aircraft, trains etc. (example installations available to consult)
  • Obscure glazing, etched, patterned or textured for privacy or design
  • Leaded glazing with antique patina finish to mirror original leads
  • Traditional decorative coloured leads to mirror original design
  • Slim 7,9,11,12 or 14mm double glazed units for Conservation areas and Listed Buildings where solid glazing bars and traditional putty bead are required
  • Easy clean glazing; a consideration for out of the way windows i.e. mansard roofs
  • Solar control glazing to help block the sun’s radiant heat especially for high exposed south facing windows
  • Curved double glazed units to help replicate the original window curved profiles.
Draught/WeatherproofingTo enhance the thermal insulation of the window, high specification seals, concealed within the window structure, are positioned so that they can be easily replaced if and when necessary.
