History of Georgian Sash Windows
Sash windows in the Georgian period were the typical and popular feature. This was due to the use of the window style in so many of England’s historic buildings such as the Kensington Palace and Hampton Court. One of the most used styles of Georgian sash windows combines six panels over six panels. Part of their aesthetic comes from the wood material and sash windows still retain the classic look even when open. Georgian houses made of wood also added ornamental pediments over their sash windows. Brick built homes used a decorative brick header which was placed above the windows.
Sash windows were also functional by allowing anyone to open it a small amount for ventilation if it was raining, for example, still keeping the rain out. Sash windows lifespan is considerably longer than previous window styles. The components were contained within the box which made them resistant against moisture damage.
Because of the look and functionality, casement windows in most buildings were replaced with sash windows in the Georgian Era. The design fit with the predominant architectural style of the period as well.
