“Everyone at Sashed was just so friendly & helpful. I needed people who would be able to deliver a wonderful service despite my challenging work hours & these were the right people. I now have a beautiful set of windows & will definitely plan to use the company again for more windows in my property. If you need double glazed sash windows, in my view, these are the people”
The issue – single glazed windows in a poor condition
Sian’s flat is in a Grade II listed building in Hampstead. The windows were in a poor state, some of them couldn’t be opened and they were also single glazed. Sian wanted to replace them with double glazed sliding sash windows which exactly replicated the original style.
The challenge – gaining planning permission and replicating highly bespoke windows
Sian’s building is Grade II Listed as it is of special architectural interest. Sashed were able to create highly bespoke windows with an unusual external trim to exactly replicated the original windows.

The solution – highly bespoke double glazed windows from Sashed
In all, four sliding sash windows and one French casement window were replaced with new double glazed units. The windows have astragal glazing bars with warm edge spacers – to make them look like authentic Georgian glazing bars. Two of the sliding sash windows were also different from the norm in that the top sashes were smaller that the bottom ones, instead of the usual arrangement of them being equal in size.
After photographs – security bars gone, external trim matched and new double glazed windows
The result – a brighter, warmer and quieter home
The new double glazed windows have made the flat much warmer and quieter while retaining the integrity of the architecture. The new double glazed windows have security features built in so that the old security bars over the windows are no longer needed. Commenting on the project, Sian says, “I love my new windows from Sashed. They look really authentic and they have made the flat much warmer and considerably quieter and there is so much more light now because I no longer need security bars over my windows, which is fantastic. The windows are also a joy to use, they slide up and down smoothly and easily.”
How we did it
- The Sashed team carried out a survey of the property, in order to get a clear idea of what work needed to be done.
- A quote was then put together and given to Sian.
- The team installed the new windows and doors and made good inside and outside the flat.
