Sam covers a large area of North London & East London but also restores and replaces sash windows in and around Central London. This large area, within our capital, see’s many diverse window styles. Neglected sliding sash windows typically reached the end of their lives in the 50’s and 60’s, culture then grew a desire to “live modern”. Victorian houses up and down the land were “modernised” first with the relatively cheap timber casement windows then, aluminium double glazed units and now the oversold uPVC alternatives. None of which do justice to the building’s proportions, or have the period style and elegance of traditional Sash windows. At Sliding Sash Solutions our aim is to keep the period-correct windows working and looking beautiful for many years to come, improving their original performance, and bringing value-added benefits to today’s decerning customer.

Timber sash windows in England as we know them have been around for hundreds of years. The traditional, double-hung, boxed framed sliding sash window originates in 17th Century London. It is a common misconception that sash windows were an imported design, but in fact, the sash windows you see abroad are exported and you can find them in colonised countries across the world including India, the Caribbean, and America.

The design of the counterbalanced window has not been attributed to any one person or any single geographical area. It is accepted that the vertical sliding sash window was originally held open with wooden pegs, inserted into holes within the frame at various positions. This later developed into a counterbalanced idea, handmade lead weights held on cotton twine rope with timber pulley wheels. At Sliding Sash Solutions we have seen many examples of historic old weights, suspended from varieties of cotton cord whilst renovating some very old windows within grade 1 and grade 2 listed buildings and conservation areas.

The design of the sash window comes from a time when streets were narrow and windows jutting out could have touched the building opposite or blocked the path of a thatcher. The sliding sash window came to the fore after the great fire of London (1666). After the great fire, new regulations produced guidelines recommending that the wooden window frames should be recessed behind the outer stone or brick exterior. This led directly to the development of Georgian architecture, sash windows represented the most up to date and technically advanced features of the day. The windows remained popular for many decades after The Great Fire and are still very prevalent today. Some of the early Georgian buildings built at that time are still in existence in and around North and East London and have at least parts of their original sash windows in place.

Top quality sash windows

We have contracted Sliding Sash Solutions (Sam) on three occasions and each time he has exceeded every expectation.

Incredible Workmanship and Service

Sam has worked with us over the past few months. He repaired and weather-proofed several sash windows and he built two new sash windows for our living room. The new windows were installed a few days ago and we still are amazed at the change it has made for our flat. I can’t recommend Sam highly enough – he made the entire process seamless.

Beautiful sash windows on listed Georgian house

Sam did a fantastic job replacing and draught-proofing a number of windows on my Georgian grade 2* listed house. Given the age and quirkiness of my house it wasn’t a standard fit but Sam managed to install the windows beautifully. The windows look stunning and I couldn’t be more pleased. I thoroughly recommend Sam, his standard of work and attention to detail is outstanding and I will be replacing more windows with him in the future.
