The Pros and Cons of Custom-Made Bespoke Sash Windows


Custom-made, bespoke sash windows offer homeowners an attractive and versatile option for home improvement projects. These custom-made sash windows fit perfectly within your existing window frames, allowing you to get the exact shape and size you desire. Bespoke sash windows can also be made from traditional materials like wood or vinyl and more modern composites such as fibreglass, making them highly durable and long-lasting.

However, custom-made, bespoke sash windows also have their downsides, notably in cost and maintenance requirements, which may cause some homeowners to opt for alternatives instead. Let’s take a look at the pros and cons of getting custom-made, bespoke sash windows installed in your home:


Aesthetically pleasing

Besides being incredibly versatile regarding size, shape, colour and materials used in construction, these types of windows are often much more aesthetically pleasing than standard store-bought models.

Increased security

Custom-built sashes use more robust frames with better weather-sealing measures, making it difficult for potential intruders to force them open.

Noise reduction

Yearly upkeep is essential for traditional wooden casements if you want them to last longer. Still, if done correctly, they will offer good soundproofing qualities that reduce noise transmitted from outside into your house.



Although they offer excellent value over many years due to their durability, custom-made, bespoke sash windows tend to be quite expensive versus lower quality models designed primarily for sale purposes only.

Maintenance requirements

Like all wooden exterior products installed in homes, they require regular maintenance, including cleaning any build-up snow/dirt; yearly staining or painting also needs completing so that your window looks its best throughout all seasons. Other external conditions, such as UV rays, can also lead to life expectancy issues, but thankfully, this isn’t something most people have massive troubles with.
