We have recently installed these Accoya timber sash windows into the existing box frames of this period cottage near Clitheroe, Lancashire. Stained internally and spray finished in the customers chosen colour on the external face. These have upgraded the customers windows from draughty single glazed sashes to our Accoya double glazed upgrade sashes, they now operate perfectly, are free from draughts and rattles, keep the heat in and cold out.
Here’s a nice example of our double glazed upgrade sashes installed into the original box frames of this period property in Ambleside, Cumbria.
Made from Accoya timber guaranteed for 50 years against rot and decay.
Fully pre-finished using Teknos paints.

We have just completed the installation of these beautiful Accoya wood Casement windows, Stable door and Entrance frame. Factory finished with Teknos “Cotswold Oak” stain. Accoya timber carries a guarantee of 50 years against rot and decay, and the Teknos stain finish carries a guarantee of 12 years. These are the ultimate choice of timber window where energy efficiency and low maintence is required. These have been installed into a Barn conversion in Formby, Merseyside.
Here’s the latest installation of our highly efficient “heritage” secondary glazing. Perfect for listed buildings and conservation areas where double glazing is not permitted or for where noise ingress needs to be drastically reduced.
We have installed these secondary glazing units after initially restoring and draught proofing the original sash windows in this grade 2 listed property in Sefton Village, Merseyside.
Incorporating the latest “Low E” glass and draught seals, our secondary glazing outperforms traditional double glazing, while also reducing noise pollution.
With many options available including custom colours, we can install secondary glazing to blend in with your existing windows.

Heres a great example of some of our Accoya Timber, French doors. Fitted to a property in Eccleston, Chorley. The old french doors had rotted, contained single glazing, were draughty and difficult to open. Our Accoya french doors come fully glazed, and fully paint finished. Using Accoya means that your doors will not warp, swell or twist. It also means that the paint finish is guaranteed for 12 years when using Teknos paints.
We can produce our double glazed sash upgrades with arches / curves to match your existing frames. When we take our final measurements prior to manufacture, we will take a template of your existing window frame and produce our double glazed sashes to fit perfectly.
We have recently started the 1st phase of restoration and draught proofing of sash windows to a property in Oxton, Wirral. These two windows were in the basement of the property and looked as though they hadn't been touched since the house was built over a 100 years ago. Apart from one cill replacement, the timber in the boxes and sashes was still in great condition, and the customer couldn't believe how well they looked once completed. We now have six other windows to install our Double Glazed Accoya sashes into. Keep an eye out for more photos as the job progresses.
We now offer two choices of mechanism when upgrading your box sash windows, to our fully finished, Accoya double glazed sashes.
We can now install your sashes using top of the range Spring balances, instead of the traditional cords and weights approach.
Using balances avoids the need for expensive lead weights as the double glazed units add a significant amount of weight compared to the old single glazed sashes. Spring balances also overcome the issue of binding or jamming that sometimes occurs when obstacles or space is at a minimum in the box frame. Fitting Spring balances allows us to fill in the apperture left behind the old pulley wheel, stopping any draughts finding their way in through the box and cavities of your walls, making your windows even more energy efficient.
We often get asked....."isn't it better to replace with PVC?"
Keeping your period property's original windows, and utilising our sash window draught proofing and restoration service, will not only stop the draughts and rattles associated with old sash windows, but will add value to your home, by retaining its original features, such as the old drawn glass, with all its imperfections, any original panneling, architraves and mouldings.
Windows are often overlooked as having an importance on how a building looks, but choose any street near by that has a selection of old property's, and compare the houses that have had PVC Windows installed, to the houses that still retain their original sash windows, and I'm sure you'll agree.
So, before you decide to replace your sash windows, get in touch with us first to see what we can do.....

It's always nice when our customers get in touch and tell us how they feel about our work. After today's installation of our double glazed sashes, our customer returned home to her new bedroom windows, and sent us this message.
"Thrilled with the windows Terry. It feels so quiet! While you are here tomorrow could you do a quick estimate for the downstairs bay window? Then I know how much I need to save up. So impressed with the results upstairs. Thanks again. Gaynor"
Sometimes changing the style of your windows can make a massive improvement to the look of your home. We often come across Windows that have replaced the original windows and no longer match the style of the house. Changing them back to sash Windows makes a huge improvement as can be seen here.
We will soon be manufacturing our sash Windows with the very impressive Accoya timber. Guaranteed not to warp, shrink, twist, or rot for 50 years..... Thats right 50 years! Also, by using Accoya we can now guarantee our Teknos paint finishes for 12 years, meaning that you no longer have to worry about re-painting every few years. There are many more benefits to using this fantastic timber, and over the next few weeks we will be updating our website with dedicated pages, containing all the information of how this timber works.
We can replicate your existing Georgian sash windows, with new hardwood fully finished double glazed sashes. Saving the existing box frames and installing our draught proofing system. Our double glazed sashes come fully painted, using microporous paint that is spray applied, leaving a beautiful finish. We keep our glazing bars narrow to match existing Georgian bars, leaving you with a window that not only looks good, but gives you far better thermal efficiency.
Following on from our previous work at the Cumbrian wildlife trust, in Kendal, we have just completed another window on the rear elevation in time for the cold weather. The old single glazed sashes were swapped out for our hardwood double glazed sashes, containing low e glass and argon gas filled cavities. The existing box frame was renovated, including a new hardwood cill as the existing cill was rotten.
Just completed the sash window restoration and draught proofing of this lovely old property in the centre of Ulverston, Cumbria. The windows were painted shut and the owners couldn't get any ventilation during the summer months. They wanted their windows to work but more importantly they also wanted them to be free from draughts and rattles. We overhauled the box frames and original sashes, repairing any rotten timber and installing our draught proofing system. The Windows now open easily,and are free from draughts. Another happy customer!
We now offer Luxaflex Duette Architella blinds, that provide a massive improvement in heat retention when keeping your existing single glazed windows.

On top of our draught proofing service, this will add real warmth to your home this winter, to find out how much you could save take the energy saving calculator here
We have just completed the first phase of works at Cumbria Wildlife Trust, Kendal, Cumbria. After upgrading their heating systems they wanted windows that would be far more energy efficient than the existing single glazed Georgian sashes. We manufactured new spele hardwood sashes containing warm edge low e argon gas filled units, drastically improving the thermal efficiency. We finished the sashes in two colours white on the inside and Valley Rock on the outside.
Our dedicated site to shutters, blinds and awnings is now up and running. To celebrate we are offering a 20% discount for all orders placed in December for installation in the new year. Have a look here www.ecosash-shutters.co.uk
