Sash Window Services

Door stripping and refurbishment

We offer many services in terms of restoration and repairs to antique or preservation order properties, revitalising them and securing them against draughts and heat leakage. Some of the projects previously undertaken have included stripping and restoring shutter boxes to changing the cords and catches on sash windows, removing rotten lintels and replacing surrounding brickwork, as well as mending joints while retaining as much of the original woodwork as possible.

From draught proofing to complete restoration and even the creation of new sash windows in sophisticated Gothic and antique styles, we have the knowledge and experience to ensure your renovation is completed promptly and competitively.

We also do door renovations, wood panel restoration, with experience in the areas of split panels and replacement panels, as well as fixing and restructuring door so old keyholes and joints become functional again.

A very specialised area where we offer services is in paint stripping, that is the removal of layers of paint without damage to the underlying wood. This can be a very complex process and should only be undertaken by a professional to avoid risk to the wood.

Door repairs


I have two small apartments with old fashioned wooden sash windows and the management company is very restrictive as to how they can be dealt with. Rather than replacing the windows, which would have been very costly, I contacted John Gormley to see how the windows could be dealt with. John gave me a very reasonable quote and refurbished the windows very professionally, replaced two cracked panes, draft proofed the windows and repainted them to bring them to their full functionality. They look great and are working perfectly. John has been a pleasure to work with over a short period of time to refurbish the windows in a cost-effective way with minimal disruption to me and my tenants. The apartments are much warmer as a result of the work done and are fire safety compliant. I am delighted to recommend John's work. Eleanor Daly

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.

So contact me today for a free quotation to see how I can help to restore your windows and doors!
