Stunning Sash Windows in Guildford

Retain the beauty of your period property or add some charm to your modern Surrey home.

For homes in the Guildford area, sash windows provide timeless beauty and everyday functionality. With their signature vertically sliding sashes and elegant proportions, they suit both heritage and contemporary properties. Sash windows not only elevate aesthetics but are highly practical when properly manufactured.

We offer sash windows in timber, uPVC or aluminium to meet your needs. Whether you want to restore the original features of a Victorian terrace, or add a touch of classic sophistication to a new build, sash windows deliver on style, performance and quality.

The key appeal lies in the design. The symmetrical facade and the sliding sash windows operation create a graceful vertical accent. Ornate detailing like slender glazing bars, curved sash horns and divided pane arrangements further enrich traditional character. Sash windows lend heritage charm or contemporary elegance.

The Benefits of our Sash Windows in Guildford

Durable by Design

We work with the industry’s leading manufacturers to ensure you receive a high-end product and service that boasts quality.

Our sash windows are built to last thanks to quality materials and expert construction. Discreet sash cords prevent sagging while modern weather seals protect against moisture damage. For long-term durability and good looks, we use only the most reliable manufacturing methods to last your house well into the future.

Hung from the top corners, our sash windows are less likely to distort under their own weight. On top of this, the dry gasket glazed drainage system helps eliminate trapped moisture.

Energy Efficient

Despite their traditional aesthetic, our sash double glazed windows offer excellent thermal efficiency. Double glazing keeps warmth in and reduces energy bills. Advanced glazing options paired with insulating frames optimise energy savings. Keep your home cosy and costs down.


With robust locking mechanisms, internal beading which is a major security upgrade and multi-point locks, our sash windows provide reliable security. The sliding sash design closes tightly for peace of mind. Beauty and security comfortably combined.

Bespoke Design

Make your sash windows truly unique. With made-to-measure sizing, custom colours, finishes and design details, we can tailor frames to complement your vision. Specify architectural elements like Georgian bars, horns or decorative glass to your Guildford home.

Our bespoke sash windows in Guildford guarantee impact, functionality and efficiency, without compromising on style.

Practical and Easy to Maintain

In addition to aesthetic appeal, sash windows bring daily practicality.

Each of our new sliding sash windows here in Surrey have their own unique benefits.

The sliding sashes enable superb ventilation and easy access for cleaning. Tight seals reduce outdoor noise penetration. Premium quality materials resist damage, discolouration and wear and tear.

Timber brings natural warmth. uPVC Sliding Sash Windows are durable and low maintenance. Aluminium offers clean, contemporary lines. Despite their heritage, modern performance innovations keep our traditional sash windows relevant for contemporary living.

Our timber sash windows are classy, strong and durable.

Our uPVC sash windows are virtually maintenance free and will not corrode, rot or warp.

Our uPVC alternatives look like timber but are more cost-effective, whilst our graceful aluminium sash windows are a resilient and stylish modern edition of the classic style.

Intricate Engineering

Our uPVC, timber and aluminium Sash Windows were precisely engineered to match the classic vertical-sliding period sash windows down to the finest details, without compromising on energy efficiency, thermal insulation or ease-of-maintenance. All of our sliding sash systems are reinforced too for added security, with each material offering its own benefits.

Each of our Sash windows guarantee a blend of timeless class of an old system and the convenience of modern manufacturing and security!

Choose materials, colours, finishes and architectural details to complement your home’s style.

They have an authentic ovolo shape to the frame, bead, sash and sill; you have the option of adding Georgian bars, sash horns, weather bars and a deep bottom rail (for period properties); and flush gaskets to mimic traditional glazing.


We blend traditional aesthetics with modern innovations and services like double glazing, weatherproofing and security enhancements.

A spiral balance system sits within the frame to counter the sash for smooth motion and the internal glazing bead ensures the window is much more secure than if the beading was on the outside.

Thermal Efficiency

The uPVC, timber and aluminium sash window systems are designed to achieve a Window Energy Rating of Band ‘A’. A-rated windows can make a significant different to home energy bills. On top of this, they’re better for the environment too. They even stop energy waste too by preventing draughts with pile seals to the sash and outerframe.

Repairing Sash Windows

Sash window repairs can be costly depending upon the type of material used in the construction, however our friendly team of sash window experts will help you navigate all the options available to you.

The cost of Sash Windows

Sash windows cost a lot! Or do they?

If you are looking for bespoke period windows but without the price tag of traditional timber frames, then our uPVC sliding sash windows are the perfect answer.

These sash windows still retain the lovely design and style, including excellent thermal and sound insulation performance but they will be able to give you even more value of money.

Are sash windows worth the money?

Sash windows are a great investment, keeping the character of your home. Sometimes by changing to a casement window, the look and charm of your property, especially if it is a period home, will just not look right and a possible decrease in your properties value.

Is there a cheaper alternative to sash windows?

This is where our uPVC line of Eco sash windows really comes into its own. Not only being far easier on your wallet they as the name suggests are very good at thermal insulation. You really can say goodbye to wind whistling single panes and hello to double glazed, easy maintenance stunners, while keeping the look and charm of your property.

So, whether your taste tends toward timber’s authenticity, uPVC’s practicality or the sleek lines of aluminium, our bespoke sash windows in Guildford enhance period and contemporary homes alike. Get in touch today to discuss your project, or visit our showroom and have a look for yourself!
