Whilst issues with windows come in all shapes and sizes, the most common repairs we carry out are:
The most common issue we find in sash windows is wood rot. Luckily, in most cases, we can often fully repair this issue. We treat all of our replacement sills with wood preservative against rot including wet rot and dry to keep your windows looking as good as new for as long as possible. We are very reluctant to carry out splice and fill repairs as some joiners do; doing so only reduces the lifetime of the sash window and increases the frequency of repaints. Instead, we carry out a complete repair which we repoint with mortar or sealant before priming. Our sill and frame replacements are guaranteed for 5 years
Sometimes, a sash is beyond repair. When this is the case, we manufacture an exact replica ensuring every part matches the original. This repair is also guaranteed for 5 years.
Our replacement glazing meets all current building regulations, even in conservation areas.
Internal Sills, Mullions, Moulding and Architrave
When rot has been particularly extensive, it may be necessary to carry out a replacement, or partial replacement, of internal sills, mullions, mouldings or architraves. When such a process is required, we are able to exactly match any profile. We can also repair and replace sash cords, pulleys and weights,
