What will we do? First we inspect the
window and discuss with you what action needs taking, if there are rotten
sills, corners or uprights we will show you them. We can repair and draught-proof most sashes and you can make the decision whether to remove the rotten areas and splice in new wood if possible ,
or whether to replace altogether. New sills and sashes, whether in hardwood or softwood, can be fitted
without removing the sash box and usually without damaging the internal decoration.
We will ‘service’ the sashes
and fit draught-proofing seals and when we do draught-proof a sash window the only place we
use brush seals, which are hard to avoid when painting, is in the new staff beads. The remainder of the seals are low
friction plastic seals that resist paint and are helpful in cutting out noise as well as draughts. The existing parting beads are replaced with a two-part system that is far easier to remove for painting. We
automatically replace the cords with a strong nylon cord that is resistant to rotting and can re-balance the windows, adding extra weights to make the windows run smoothly and easily, if needed. All treated
sashes are fitted with rope grabs that make removal and re-installation a simple and easy operation and when we've finished
we'll even give you, or your painter, full instruction on the remove/refit steps.
Lastly, if you have cracked or broken panes of glass we can replace them, whilst we are renovating and if your window is really bad and it needs to be replaced with another, we can fabricate that too. We are happy
to work on both small and large numbers of windows. If you have a question
that the foregoing hasn’t addressed then feel free to ask, our details are on the Contact Us page.
