Bespoke casement windows – the benefits

As with any bespoke joinery, our timber sash windows offer important advantages:

  • Exactly the window you want
  • Made to measure (and match)
  • Your choice of timber and finish
  • Bespoke window furniture and glazing
  • Unique to your property
  • Sympathetic with new and restoration works
  • Manufactured to last

Double-glazed casement windows offer several benefits over their single-glazed predecessors:

  • Improved energy efficiency
  • Better sound insulation
  • Enhanced security
  • Easier maintenance

Updating your old casements with our handcrafted replacements is also a perfect opportunity to benefit from the strength, longevity and other appealing characteristics of modern advanced timbers such as Accoya®.

Crafted to your specification

We design, handcraft and install our bespoke timber casement windows with several convenient supply options:

  • Supply to your measurements
  • Measurement and supply
  • Supply and fit
  • Supply, fit and create window openings

Because our sister company offers a full installation service, you can count on a seamless, professional service throughout measurement, bespoke manufacture, fitting and associated structural work.

Types of casement windows

Do you have a particular timber casement window style in mind? Whether you want the understated style of Victorian casement windows for a heritage property, or a striking post-modern take on this window type, we’ll design and handcraft it in our South Devon joinery workshop. Here are some possibilities:

  • Traditional single-frame casement windows
  • Flush casement windows
  • Push-out casement windows
  • Top-hinged ‘awning’ casements
  • Storm proof casements
  • Bottom-hinged ‘hopper’ casements
  • Double casement windows (‘French casements’)

Tell us what you have in mind. Or tell us what you want to achieve with your casement windows. Either way, we’ll help realise your casement window vision.

Timber for casement windows

A huge choice of timber is available for your new or replacement wood casement windows. We’ll help you choose a suitable sustainable wood from softwoods, hardwoods and advanced timbers such as these:

  • Kiln-dried Scandinavian Redwood
  • Yew
  • Iroko
  • Oak
  • Merenti
  • Idigbo
  • Accoya® advanced timber

Of course, we can craft casement windows with your preferred timber specification. Alternatively, once we understand your window objectives, we can recommend a suitable timber for the specific application.

Finishes for timber casement windows

After thorough timber preservation and priming, high-quality commercial spraying in our joinery spray booth gives beautiful, long-lasting finishes:

  • Oiling
  • Staining
  • Varnishing
  • Painting (including microporous acrylics)

Our experience with paint systems such as Teknos and Sikkens means your timber casements will look superb and last well into the future. What about colours? With 1625 RAL Design choices available (and colours from other leading paint brands, such as Farrow & Ball) we’ll meet your finish specification.

Depending on your requirements, we can supply bespoke joinery ‘naked’ (ready for on-site finishing). However, by supplying joinery beautifully finished and ready to install, you avoid messy, time-consuming site work. Having our own in-house spray booth also gives us perfect control over finishing and its integration with the rest of joinery manufacturing – that’s good for your peace of mind.

Casement window hardware

Whether for a tightly controlled heritage project, work on Grade I or Grade II properties, or a leading-edge contemporary build, correct choice of window hardware (‘window furniture’) is essential.

Fortunately, a huge range of high-quality modern fittings means that there’s no need to compromise on performance, quality, aesthetics and security. Or compatibility with period requirements – and the demands of your local conservation team.

From character-packed monkey tail window stays to key-operated multipoint locking, every level of practicality, discreet convenience and security is available for modern and heritage timber framed casement windows.

  • Traditional casement fasteners
  • Long-arm auto restrictors
  • Easy-clean friction stays
  • Streamlined locking fasteners
  • Spoon- and ball-end locking fasteners
  • Mortise (‘butt’) hinges
  • Hinge bolts and keeps

As ever, please tell us what you want to achieve and the aesthetic brief and we’ll create the perfect combination of casement windows and appropriate hardware.

Glazing for timber casement windows

A similarly wide range of options applies to your casement window glazing:

  • Traditional single glazing
  • Thermally-efficient double glazing
  • Laminated and toughened glass
  • Privacy glass
  • Acoustic glazing
  • Other speciality glazing

Different unit thickness, air gap variations, use of different gases, low-iron glass and warm-edge spacer specifications all affect the finished windows’ performance. We could be replacing glass in heritage single glazed sash windows or upgrading to slim line double-glazed vertical sliders. Either way, just tell us what’s needed and we’ll help you choose the perfect handcrafted bespoke window joinery.

New or restored wood casement windows

Does your project require new casement windows or thorough restoration? Either way, our skilled joinery workshop team can help.

Professional casement window renovation is often an option for cost-effectively rejuvenating old windows without complete replacement. When tasked with casement restoration, we often work with our sister company (they’re experienced at property maintenance). This typically includes the following:

  • Professional timber repair
  • Sash, sill and profile-matched frame repairs
  • Cleaning, priming and refinishing
  • Draught proofing
  • Repair/upgrade of window hardware
  • Upgraded security

Of course, if your windows are still single-glazed, this could be a good time to upgrade to double-glazed replacement casement windows.

Converting to double glazing is a proven way to enjoy acoustic, thermal efficiency and security benefits. Then there’s the lower maintenance that comes with properly prepared and finished modern timbers – including game-changing Accoya® with its guaranteed life of up to 50 years.

Naturally, you keep the understated elegance of traditional timber casements – but with all the improvements that decades of evolution bring. We offer a full range of measurement, bespoke manufacture and fitting options for trade and private customers.

Of course, when we handcraft your double-glazed casement windows you specify exactly the glazing you need – including thermally-efficient A-rated double glazing with the latest warm-edge technology.

How much do casement windows cost?

How much should you invest in your new Accoya® or oak casement windows? As ever with made-to-order joinery, it depends on your specification for everything from size, glazing, timber choice, hardware, security features and finish. That’s why our joinery is bespoke (we don’t do ‘off the shelf’). And why we’ll only prepare your quotation after thoroughly understanding your casement requirement and specification.
