Replace or repair your sash windows?
We like to restore and reuse the original timber and glass panes from your sash windows wherever possible, we’ll only ever suggest replacements when the sash windows are completely beyond repair. And depending on the style of your existing sash windows, we can often upgrade them by installing double glazing. That said, if you do need replacements, we’ll happily match your original window detail or create something entirely different – the choice is yours.
We can also do more minor repairs such as, unstick sashes that have been painted shut, replace sash cords and ensure they are correctly weighted.
Noise and warmth
When it comes to living comfortably, a good sash window can make all the difference. We offer a range of draught proofing, noise reduction and heat saving options, depending on the listing of your home and your budget. So if you’re based near a busy road (or fed up of the gusty wind and seagulls in Brighton!) we can sound proof with acoustic glass, or provide draught proofing and double glazing solutions.
We work with a range of sustainably sourced, high quality timber – ensuring that your old windows are restored to look as good as the day they were first installed. Our draught proofing and double glazing services can also help to cut your energy bills and reduce your carbon footprint – saving around £165 and 690kg of carbon dioxide per year.
A sash window should look good, but it should also work properly too. The original purpose of a sash window was for ventilation – to allow hot air out the top and cold air through the bottom. Whether it’s the top or bottom sash, we can unstick windows that have been painted shut, and we’ll also make sure all the cords and weights are in working order, allowing smooth movement when opening and closing them.
