The type of windows installed at your property will have a massive impact on its overall appearance. Sash windows are often seen in traditional properties and perfectly complement the heritage style. Casement windows are usually associated with more modern homes and are popular with new build properties. This doesn’t mean that you can’t install sash windows on a modern home and vice versa. The ultimate decision will depend greatly on personal preference.
The sash is the moveable part of a window made up of the vertical and horizontal frame that holds the glass. On a double-hung window, the check rail is the part where the bottom part of the upper sash and the upper part of the lower sash come in contact. Also known as the middle of the window.
A casement is a window that is attached to its frame by one or more hinges at the side. They are used singly or in pairs within a common frame, in which case they are hinged on the outside. Casement windows are often held open using a casement stay.
