October 24, 2023 | Blog
Whether you’re considering replacing the sliding sash windows in your home or looking to install them into your new renovation project, it’s important to understand the different factors that can affect the cost of this type of wooden window.
Factors influencing wooden sash window prices
At Bereco, all of our timber windows are completely customisable which means that homeowners and housebuilders alike are able to pick and choose from a range of options to create wooden sliding sash windows which are truly unique to their property. With this in mind, our prices are very much influenced by the different choices that are made.
How are sliding sash window prices calculated?
Factors like the window size and type as well as the glass and material used will all play a role in determining the price of your new sliding sash windows. The customisation options and whether you opt for a supply only or supply and installation service will also contribute to the total sash window cost.
We know that investing in brand new sliding sash windows is a big commitment and so our team of experts are on hand throughout the whole process. We’ll support you to find not only the perfect windows for your home but ones that best suit your budget.
Impact of size and design on sash window pricing
The size and design of a window directly influences the material and labour requirements to manufacture a window, so it’s difficult to give a cost without a specified quotation. However, we understand that when it comes to windows one size doesn’t fit all and so we offer a wide selection.
Designed to embody traditional styles and deliver exceptional performance, our sliding sash windows are available in a range of bespoke sizes and designs. In fact, they can span widths up to 1.2 metres and reach heights of up to 2.7 metres, and use any combination of fixed and opening sashes in your choice of contemporary, traditional or heritage mouldings.
Plus, we offer two different styles of sliding sash window including sliding sash spiral balance and sliding sash cords & weights so you can find the perfect match for your property. Spiral balance is the most popular style while the cords & weights design features lead or steel weights and nylon sash cords to recreate a more traditional style.
How does the choice of wood affect the price?
Different wood choices often influence window price, and this is because the quality and sustainability of different kinds of wood can change dramatically.
Bereco sash windows are made from engineered laminated sections of sustainably sourced FSC® certified timber and we offer both redwood and hardwood. Compared to redwood, the hardwood we use has more of an open grain structure which means it creates a more textured finish, particularly when stained.
Thanks to the wood that we use to create our windows, we supply high-quality and high-performance products that stand the test of time. With an average life expectancy of 60 years (which is twice as long as alternative window materials) Bereco timber sash windows are truly built to last which is why they’re such a fantastic investment.
Influence of glass selection on window prices
Although it might not be top of the wish list when it comes to finding replacement windows, the type of glass that’s used in a window has an incredibly important role to play. Not only does it help to create more privacy, but it can help to reduce the amount of outside noise and also improves a property’s energy efficiency. With this in mind, it’s important to remember that the choice of glass will also contribute to the total sash window cost.
At Bereco, both our double-glazing and triple-glazing wooden sliding sash windows achieve incredibly low U-values which means that they deliver fantastic thermal performance and can help to keep a home well insulated throughout the year.
Plus, we supply the only certified noise-reducing timber sash windows that incorporates glazing with a dB rating of up to 47dB which is perfect for properties that are close to busy roads, railway lines or flight paths.
Customisation options and their costs
When it comes to customising your sash windows, it’s worth remembering that there are several things which can be tailored to make the window’s appearance bespoke to your property and each one is likely to affect the cost.
We offer a wide range of customisation options and accessories for our sliding sash windows so our customers can pick everything from the paint colour, stain and finish to the glazing, ironmongery, mouldings and bars.

Installation costs for sliding sash windows
Once you’ve designed the sliding sash window to your exact specification, you’ll then need to consider the next phase of the project which is the installation, as this too will affect the final bill.
Like the design of our windows, we offer a range of services so depending on your personal preferences you can opt to work closely with our team for either our ‘supply only service’ or ‘supply and installation service.’
Although the one you choose will alter the price of your new windows, the service and quality of products delivered will be the same no matter what.

While those who pick ‘supply only’ will receive advice and support to design the perfect windows for their project. Our expert technical team will be available to help check all of the finer details including the final frame sizes and more. Once the order is placed the windows will then be produced and delivered within a 6-8 week lead time.
