Sash Windows

The Restoration of Sash Windows

When only masterpieces will do

The art of maintaining and repairing sash windows is centuries old, part of our architectural and national heritage, and as such is protected under local and national conservation regulations and guidelines. Even the buildings and area surrounding a protected structure are subject to the same regulations, so it's important to speak to your local council before undertaking any work.

Our work has been approved by Irish councils for preservation and conservation, and has drawn national media acclaim as well as architectural commendation and client appreciation.

The process of repairing and restoring sash windows usually involves taking down the beads and the upper and lower sash parts, cleaning away excess paint, and replacing the pulleys and cords as well as putty. A draught excluder is fitted after the sash has been pulled down, repaired, and refitted.



John does great job, clean and tidy, arrives on time very knowledgeable, pleasure to deal with, windows and door work better now than before, draught proofing installed makes the property retain heat far more than before. Would recommend to anyone!

About Sash Windows

With more than thirty years of experience in carpentry, cabinetmaking, sash window construction and restoration as well as being highly qualified. When I started doing restoration I began to study the original construction techniques used by the master craftsmen who created the original pieces, and I have applied this knowledge in restoring their work to its original glory.

I have worked on large projects for the commercial, consumer and public sectors and completed successful restorations on pieces that were centuries old. Large or small, all work receives the same professional care and attention to even the most minute details, with the added benefit that the repairs will enhance energy efficiency considerably and reduce heating costs for the building when finished.
