Draught proofing sash windows and casement windows
Draught proof your timber sash windows, casement windows and timber doors. Get rid of those pesky draughts, rattles and extra dust.
Why draught proof your sash windows, casement windows?
About one fifth of a home’s heating is lost through windows. Most of that escapes through air gaps rather than through the glass. Research has shown that air infiltration through a sash window in good condition can be reduced by as much as 86% by adding draught-proofing. And it has the added advantage of reducing noise and dust.
Sash window draughts and rattles
Original sash and casement windows bring traditional charm to a property, but they are renowned for draughts and rattles, especially in windy weather. Many people contact us to help them draught-proof their timber windows, so they can enjoy a cosier and quieter home. Draught proofing can also protect windows from damage caused by rattling in adverse conditions.
Original windows and doors are a key part of the character and interest of older buildings, and should be retained where possible. Draught proofing is one of the cheapest and least intrusive methods of cutting down on heat lost through windows and doors, and the costs can be quickly recovered by the energy savings.
