Timber is the material of choice when it comes to sliding sash windows. The original sliding sash windows were all made from wood and it is still considered to be the material of choice for the purists and connoisseurs of the traditional sash window. Some conservation areas and listed buildings can only be fitted with timber sash windows in this instance a timber sash window such as George Barnsdale is a must.
Although UPVC sliding sash windows are very similar to timber, timber has a different effect which cannot be achieved with plastic. It is a misconception that wooden sash windows are a maintenance nightmare. Timber offers many benefits over plastic and only requires periodic maintenance checking for signs of wear and tear once a year. Modern paints and wood finishes are much harder wearing than their historic equivalents and also enable the timber to breath therefore timber windows now require even less maintenance than ever before.
