Jon came to eliminate the drafts coming in through our front door and two large original sash windows. Now, even on a particularly stormy seafront day, no draft can be felt or heard. Jon conducted all work to high quality, demonstrating what was needed and checking that all was OK at each stage of the repair. He even returned to do some further repairs above and beyond those originally agreed.”Jamie – BN2 – Kemptown
What to expect when having your rotten, period sash windows restored
After the initial technical survey and quote phase, depending on what’s need we’ll send Jon our technical surveyor to your home to take exact measurements and note which repairs are necessary. On the day we ask that you clear the area around the window to be repaired, so the we have space for tools and to move around without damaging your furniture.
We will then approach each repair we typically take the following approach:
- We remove your current / old windows from the window frame
- Remove decaying timber which may exist in the units, frame or sill
- Where existing timber is beyond we splice in new hardwood timber
- Fill any cavities with our high-quality epoxy resin, which is then moulded to match any existing profiles perfectly
- Replace the cords with new high-quality cord, service the pulley and correct the sash balance to ensure smooth operation – nobody wants a sash window that won’t stay open!
- Upgrade the seal by draught proofing the whole window, which virtually eliminating draughts and rattles.
