How Can I Tell If My Sash Windows Are Original?
The glass is usually the giveaway in your sash window. If it shimmers and has waves or ripples, it is more than likely original. The glass may also have tiny air bubbles (seeds) which add to the charm and character. As a general rule, the more wobbly the glass, the older the window - and most sash windows are between 120 to 180 years old.
The sash window is often found in Georgian and Victorian houses, and the classic arrangement has three panes across by two up on each of two sashes, giving a "six over six" panel window, although this is by no means a fixed rule. Innumerable late Victorian and Edwardian suburban houses were built in England using standard sash window units approximately 4 feet (1.2m) in width, but older, hand-made units could be of any size, as the image illustrates. It consists of an upper and lower sash that slide vertically in separate grooves in the side jambs or in full-width metal weatherstripping. This type of window provides a maximum face opening for ventilation of one-half the total window area. Each sash is provided with springs, counterweights, or compliant weatherstripping to hold it in place in any location.
