Wooden Sash Windows in Oxford, Cambridge, Hampstead & Harrogate
If you’ve been living with original Wooden Sash Windows that look the part, but are draughty and difficult to open, we can help. Keeping true to the original look, and even sash mechanism, we’ll custom-make and fit exact replicas of your sash windows. Your home will retain its authentic style, and you’ll be able to let the fresh air in when you want it, and shut it out when you don’t.
Each window unit is measured by our experts, and then made to your specifications in our own workshops. This means we can offer a large range of options for your new windows, many of which are offered to complement period properties.
Once made to your exact specifications, your new wooden sash windows are packaged carefully for safe transportation, and stored securely until ready for installation.
Timber Sash Window Options
Our Conservation range of wooden sash windows are designed for period homes to improve thermal, acoustic and security performance. The bars are glued inside and outside the sealed unit to create a true bar effect.
Mainly for listed buildings and conservation areas, the Heritage wooden sah window range is designed to replicate traditional, single glazed windows. It offers enhanced thermal and acoustic performance. The bars are “real” and fixed between the glass panes.
You have a choice of hardwood, softwood or Accoya engineered wood. Accoya is designed to resist rot, even in British weather, and stay structurally sound for decades. All our timber is obtained from verified sustainable sources.
Cords & weights system
The window is counter-balanced by weights concealed in the side sections. The counterbalancing weights are connected to the window via pulleys that sit at the top of the frame.
Our sash windows are designed to be lockable, or come with no locking mechanism. We can give you advice on this during your free estimate.
You can choose from a range of finishes, developed to complement period homes, and guaranteed for 5 years.
Spring balance system
In this more recent innovation, a spring-loaded device is used instead of the cords and weights system.
Decorative bars can be added to your windows as an option.
We can replicate any stained glass design – traditional or contemporary – in any size.
Enhance the style of your home down to the finest details, with bespoke leaded glass designs.
We offer many types of glass – and can give you advice if you live in a listed building or conservation area, yet need to improve the energy efficiency of your home. It’s possible to have stained or leaded glass in any design.
Our slimline range of glass is ideal for period properties, and helps to retain the character and style of the building.
Double glazed glass
Keep the warmth inside and the cold outside with thermally efficient double glazing.
Triple glazed glass
Add extra insulation and noise prevention with triple glazing. Good if you’re near a busy road or runway.
A layer of vinyl is sandwiched between two panes of glass to increase safety and security, and to reduce noise.
Solar control glass
Let the light in, while reflecting much of the sun’s heat back outside. Good for conservatories and south facing windows.
Obscure (frosted) glass
Essential for bathrooms, or any window that faces directly onto your neighbour’s property. Many different styles available.

WHAT OUR CUSTOMERS SAY:
“Excellent product, communications and service, good post sales support with visits. I’m very happy.”
Mr Pitt, Oxford
“I am very pleased with our new windows. The service we received was excellent, the windows arrived much more quickly than we expected, the price was very competitive, and the installation was done by charming people who left everything spotlessly clean. I highly recommend this company.”
“Great workmanship, very friendly service and wouldn’t hesitate to recommend.”
‘This is a very professional and reliable company. The product is excellent. We have new French Doors – they are excellent quality, draft proof, very stylish and totally in keeping with our Victorian House. We were able to discuss all details and have exactly what we wanted. I am very happy and have no reservations in recommending this company 100%.’
“We initially needed a new basement window, a small bathroom one and a large sash window. We were so taken with these that we decided to replace all the windows and the front door. Our house was built around 1875 and I would not have parted with the original wooden frames and glazing without the confidence I gained from a visit from one of the company owners. We set Woodcraft a condition to match the proportions and period character and to provide us with a very attractive replacement. They did so expertly, efficiently, responsibly, skilfully and with very enviable results, exceeding all our expectations. I have since recommended Woodcraft Windows to our closest friends. This is the fifth company we screened to undertake this work; the fruits of more than 18 months of shopping around.”
Leon, Jericho, Oxford
“I am so happy with my new windows and doors and I have had so many compliments about them. Martynas and his team were helpful, considerate and skilful. They installed two sets of french doors at the back of my property and replaced the old aluminium windows at the front of my house with beautiful timber sash windows which match the neighbours original Victorian sashes exactly.
I was very impressed with their attention to detail and they really took pride in their work and cared that I was happy with the results.
I have no hesitation in recommending this Woodcraft Windows – they charged a competitive price and delivered the work on schedule.”
‘We are delighted with our new windows. Every stage of the process went really smoothly. Martynas was patient and talked us through things were were unsure about. The windows are beautiful and were fitted quickly and without fuss by friendly people. I’d recommend them without hesitation.’
“Very professional, friendly and quality of goods and workmanship – excellent. Also very competitively priced. I would recommend this company to anyone looking to replace their windows.”
‘Woodcraft Windows was recommended to us by a neighbour and we have been so impressed with their communication and service throughout. The windows were installed on time (in fact a bit earlier than expected) and with no chasing from us. Installation went smoothly and the windows look brilliant! Highly recommended.’
“Martynas maintained great communication and was very helpful. His team were friendly, efficient, tidy and concerned to get the details right. The product was excellent too.”
Dr Dye, Oxford
“Very helpful in working with us to find the right solution for our doors and windows and were patient with us during the listed planning process. The installation went very smoothly, on time and as expected with a product we are very pleased with. The onsite team were courteous, efficient and helpful and were very tidy.
The finished product is of high quality and finish and we are very pleased. We are so happy we have asked them to quote for other windows in our house.”
“The Woodcraft Windows team were extremely professional and enthusiastic from the day they came to give us the quote to the final installation. We really appreciated how responsive they were to our queries and worked with us to get the result we wanted to achieve.
The delivery of the windows and door exceeded our expectations: 8-10 weeks they said, and they were all installed by week nine! We loved the care the craftsmen took on the detailing of the architraves for the doors and windows. Our old Victorian house presented some challenges, but they were beautifully overcome. Great service for a competitive price.”
Toby, Cowley, Oxford
“We had a bay window replaced and are really happy – friendly and considerate service, and the windows are well made and look great. The team finished on schedule and tidied up after themselves. Would highly recommend!”
“A very professional process for quoting the job including careful measurement of the windows to be replaced. A team of two craftsmen fitted the new windows, leaving the rooms usable overnight during installation.
They cleaned up at the end of the job leaving two rooms ready to use immediately after they had gone. The formal handover including an inspection of the quality of the workmanship was very reassuring, as was the independent FENSA quality certification of the job post-completion.
This company has excellent design, installation and invoicing processes. This is a great company whom I would be very happy to use again and recommend to others.”
Dr Patell, Oxford
“Very clean workers, nicely mannered, problem solvers and did a very good job.”
Mr Newman, Watlington

“Highly recommended – high quality product, good advice, and flawless service at a reasonable price. Replaced bespoke oak windows and door at historic manor house.”
‘Woodcraft Windows replaced seven Casement Windows at our house. Everything went well, we are happy with the quality of the windows and company‘s excellent work. You deserve best recommendations.’
We had all our windows and doors replaced. Dealing with this company has been a delight from start to finish.
