Having your sash windows repaired instead of replaced is extremely cost effective. Just remember that tradition sash windows have several practical advantages. Firstly, original sash windows have been made by a skilled craftsman, individually and using the highest standard of timber and materials. Even new timber windows, which have been made to the original concepts do not generally have the endurance of older sash windows. This is because in the Victorian and Georgian periods the softwood timber in general was second to none. It came from the Baltic where it had had grown slowly in the cold environment. This produced a very dense, tight-grained wood. Timber of such quality today is extremely difficult to find.
