Getting a great price on wood sash windows for your UK home is only part of the picture. No matter how low the price, if the quality isn't superior and the contractor isn't competent, your window replacement or installation project is headed for disaster. Finding a contractor for your sash window repair or replacement project is perhaps the most difficult yet important aspect of any major home repairs you undertake. Here's some information about how to choose a contractor to repair or replace your sash windows.

The Internet is a Good Place to Start

For a comprehensive picture of wood sash window contractors, the Internet is a superior tool. Just open your favorite search engine like Google or Yahoo and type in a search phrase like "timber sash windows" + [your location]. An example of what to type would be "timber sash windows + London" (without the bold type or quotation marks). A results page will pop up with links for more contractors in or near London than you could ever find any other way. When you navigate to a contractor's web site, you'll see pictures of types of products offered, past projects, a company history and plenty of text to read about the company and why you should choose it for your replacement sash window project.

A Detailed Estimate Critical

Any reputable timber sash window contractor will want to come out to your home in order to prepare an estimate. Estimates are sometimes tricky, especially if you have bow windows or bay windows or casement windows of a non-standard size. These windows are generally more expensive because very often they are bespoke (custom made). Another factor that can drive up the cost is the type of glazing you choose. More homeowners elect double glazing windows that have a layer of air or inert gas between the panes because of their ability to provide good insulation against both heat and cold. Double glazed sash windows are pretty much the norm, so be sure your estimate includes them. If possible, choose a contractor who has a manufacturing facility so that the same company that installs them makes the windows. This will give your project continuity. Be sure the estimate includes the cost of removing the old windows and cleanup when the job is complete.

Customer Service is Key

The contractor should respect your wishes in all cases. If you ask for something that can't be done, the contractor should be able to offer reasonable alternatives. Most contractors will have a supervisor or crew chief on site when your project is underway, so make sure you know who he is and communicate any questions or issues you might have to him in a timely fashion. Wood sash windows properly installed by a reputable UK contractor will not only make your home more attractive and comfortable but also increase its value significantly.

For UK homeowners who want an authentic look in their older or period homes, wood sliding sash windows are a popular choice. While wood sash windows are both affordable and attractive, many Britons have concerns about the environmental implications of using so much wood. Many wonder if PVC sash windows aren't a more earth-friendly choice. PVC sash window, however, have their own set of problems, not the least of which is that they are not biodegradable. Here's some information about wooden sash windows that might help consumers make an informed choice.

If you're a consumer who is conscious that the choices we make in the present may have far-reaching effects on future generations. While many people are concerned about the high levels at which wood is consumed for building products like wood sash window, we need to remember that wood is a renewable resource that can be farmed like vegetables and fruit. Although the time to maturity is longer, "tree farms" are common in many countries worldwide.

Timber sash window utilize both soft- and hardwoods in their construction. So, when shopping for replacement windows, try to determine the source of the wood from which they are constructed. Such sources should be only managed forests where sustainability and renewability are paramount concerns.

Why Not to Buy PVC or Aluminum Window

Although the argument for buying PVC or aluminum window might seem valid on the surface, in truth it's defective. For example, did you know that over 33% of the chemicals listed as hazardous by EU governments are used in the manufacture of PVC? The energy cost of converting these dangerous substances to PVC and then to sash windows is much higher than the energy cost of converting trees to wooden sliding sash windows. In addition, wood is biodegradable and recyclable where PVC is not. Both the World Wildlife Fund and Greenpeace have endorsed the use of wood window because they do not compromise or threaten the environment.

More Reasons to Buy Wood Window

Consumers must remember that using timber from managed forests is environmentally sound not only because wood is biodegradable and recyclable but also because wood, if properly used, treated and maintained can last indefinitely. In fact, a wooden statue that dates back to 2300 BC was recently found in a tomb in Sakkara, a burial site associated with the ancient Egyptian city of Memphis. Wooden sliding sash windows also have insulating properties superior to those made from PVC. This means homes with wooden windows are highly likely to have lower heating and cooling costs. To be truly earth-friendly, timber sliding sash window should be finished with water-based stains and sealers rather than with solvent-based products that can harm the environment and pollute ground water.

Sliding sash windows are an important architectural detail in many UK homes. Considering environmental factors when choosing replacements is an important aspect of any purchasing decision.
