The Royal Hotel

We have supplied the majority of required joinery items for the Royal Hotel in Waterloo for many years. The hotel is situated in a conservation area overlooking Crosby marina and the Liverpool estuary. This prominent position affords guests beautiful views and sunsets, and has proven a popular venue for many wedding parties as well as business travellers and tourists. Although such a location provides spectacular scenery, it also means that the building is exposed to the full force of nature. Subsequently maintenance is an ongoing project.

When the time came to replace the hotels traditional sash windows and elegant front façade the hotels owner employed our services to manufacture everything in timber. Being in a conservation area, modern products such as UPVC or aluminium are completely taboo. Even if these materials were permitted for use they would not have bonded well with the hotels traditional character so wood was the only viable option.

Box Sash Windows

by Scott Edwards

The window manufacturing industry is now seeing a notable resurgence in the traditional sash window, also referred to as the “Box Sash” or “Sliding Sash Window”. This specific style of window frame will never become obsolete because it is an integral part of heritage buildings and a major feature within the legislation of local conservation authorities.

The majority of proprietors owning traditional buildings have no wish to remove these windows, whether their property is used for residential or commercial purposes. This is because the sash window gives so much character to almost any building in which it resides, and has been proven to increase value and saleability.

The most notable upturn with these windows is that they’re now commonly being designed into new build projects. Admittedly at the moment this is generally focused at the higher end of the market where there is likely to be a greater flexibility toward rather than constraints on budgets, but there is no doubt that the sash windows popularity is as strong as ever.
