Window Repairs

Preserving Our Architectural Heritage

Window repairs and refurbishment

Often one of the issues with older windows in period properties, which are very important to preserve in a condition as close to the original as possible, are cold air draughts and heat leakage through the windows. While owners generally assume they need to replace the glazing or install double glazing, in reality the air gaps are usually in the frame, whether from simple wear over time or from improper sealing of the windows at some stage during their lifetime.

As well as this, noise pollution, a more and more common complaint these days, is exacerbated by the small openings which allow cold air in and warm air out. Almost all of the heat loss in period homes is due to draughts and improper sealing, and the problems can increase over time, sometimes even leading to the window refusing to open, which can happen with rot buildup or timber swelling.

We restore and perfect your beautiful sash windows to their original glory, and in fact better, since the processes we use are seamlessly combined with traditional window construction and installation techniques to get the best result and add value to your property.

As well as draught proofing, we can replace and rebalance the weighting system, the cords on the window, the weights and frames, and the staff and parting beads. So don't delay, give us a call today!


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.
