Sash window restoration, repair and draughtproofing services

The restoration and repair of your timber sash windows will ensure that all windows work freely and easily, have cords of the correct length with the correct weights and are structurally sound.

Our sash renovation process includes the following attention to detail:

  • Pulleys are lubricated
  • Sliding sashes are sanded to a smooth finish and the sides are waxed
  • Any excess paint is removed
  • Defective putty is removed and replaced
  • Defective beads are replaced
  • Draftproofing is fitted
  • New cords are fitted using waxed cotton sash cord or sash chains as appropriate
  • External bare timber is treated with a clear primer preservative containing fungicide and insecticide
  • Finally, a check is made to ensure the sash is fitted correctly and moves easily.

New sash windows

In cases where a replacement window has to be fitted, we can manufacture a new sash window for you to match the original. With care and dedication, the window will be carefully made to match the others in your house.

The windows can be single or double glazed using thin glazing bars to match the other windows with traditional weights and pulleys.

All windows are made especially to order and to your exact specification, and we take particular pleasure in replicating Georgian and Victorian sash windows.
