Mortise-and-tenon joints are used for the best quality window sash.  No other type of joint is nearly as strong or rugged as a mortise-and-tenon joint.  Exterior sash have to be able to withstand severe service requirements and must be made the best way possible if they are going to last.  This is why ALL Weston Millwork Company sash are made with tried and true mortise-and-tenon joinery.
