Sash Window Draught Proofing
As part of our wooden sash window replacement and refurbishment services, we offer comprehensive draught proofing that will leave your house warm and quiet without affecting the aesthetic character of your property. Draught proofing is a relatively quick and easy way of saving money and energy. According to Historic England research, draught proofing can reduce air leakage through a wooden sash window by as much as 50%.
We apply draught proofing in three key areas of each sash window; the staff bead, which insulates the bottom rail and sides of the lower sash; the meeting rail at the middle of the window, where the two sashes meet; and the parting bead, which insulates the top sash. Carrying out this process does not negatively affect the operation of the window, nor does it affect the appearance of your property, because the seals are concealed, rather than being surface mounted.
Advantages of Sash Window Draught Proofing
– Smoother window operation
– Prevents ingress of dust, dirt and rain
– Increased energy efficiency
– Reduced sound ingress
– Reduced chance of timber decay
When we draught proof your windows, we can also repair any window furniture, such as locks and catches, remove excess paint from the frame, replace pulleys and cords and rebalance sash weights, as necessary. A full painting service is also available.
