Breathe new life into your property with new or renovated timber sash windows

Made from two glazed panels that slide open and shut independently of one another, the wooden sliding sash windows of today have come a long way over the last 350 years or so. Manufactured in-house using time-honoured joinery skills fused with future proof technology, with over 35 years’ worth of experience designing completely new timber sash windows that seamlessly replicate the originals, retaining your building's authentic period styling is made easy with Ventrolla. Or, if your original timber sash windows are draughty, rattling, or inefficient, we can also provide industry-leading wooden sash window renovations with our unique patented perimeter sealing system.

Energy Efficiency

High performance timber sash windows

Timber is a naturally insulating construction material, offering superior thermal insulation where it’s needed most. Adept at keeping buildings warm and cosy whilst eliminating draughts and rattles for good, combined with efficient double glazing, secondary glazing, or single glazing, you can combat rising fuel bills and improve energy efficiency across the board with a high-performance Ventrolla installation.

Once we receive your final payment, our handy ‘Care Pack’ will be sent to you or your client which includes energy improvement certificates for absolute peace of mind.

Maintenance

How do you clean timber windows?

Low levels of basic maintenance and cleaning are essential to prolonging the life of new timber sash windows. Requiring a fresh coat of paint every 6-8 years and a quick clean every 6 months, periodic timber window maintenance doesn’t need to be time-consuming.

Once we receive your final payment, our ‘Care Pack’ will be sent to you or your client which includes handy Maintenance Instructions to keep new timber windows looking their best for longer.

Frequently Asked Questions

I live in a listed building / conservation area / AONB - can you work on my property?

Quite simply, yes, we can! We have completed lots of work over the years on listed properties and those within conservation areas and Areas Of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB). Working closely with local conservation and planning officers, English Heritage, Historic England, Historic Scotland, and Cadw, you can trust in Ventrolla to reinstate and sustain unique architectural features whilst simultaneously heightening historical value too.

Will new windows cut down on outside noise?

Our secondary glazing system and the Ventrolla Perimeter Sealing System (draught-proofing) have been independently tested and proven to significantly reduce sound intrusion.

Do you offer an installation guarantee?

Yes, our work is guaranteed for 5 years.

What is the average cost of renovating a window?

It all depends on how much work each window needs. For a more accurate estimate, please call us on 0800 0277 454 to arrange a free, no-obligation survey.

How long will my window renovation take?

The time taken will vary depending on the result e.g., your survey and the work we identify is needed. Typically, we work to a one-window-per-day time scale, although this can be adjusted, if necessary, to suit your requirements or our schedule.

Varying from installation to installation, our average timescale targets are

  • Enquiry to quote: 5-10 days
  • Quote to order: 30 days
  • Order to installation: 10-16 weeks
