Sash window and door restoration in Dublin

With three decades of professional experience in sash window restoration and carpentry projects, John Gormley not only has the skill to refurbish and revitalise your antique windows and doors, he has a focused understanding of the regulations and the aesthetics involved. His work has been seen in the Irish Times and is very highly recommended by builders and conservation architects. When some companies are incapable of restoring their client's property, he is the one they come to.

Windows not only retain heat and help keep noise out, they also frame the look and character of a house. First impressions last, whether with people or houses, and the windows of your property are an important part of that. This is why many historical and areas of archictural interest have preservations orders on all of the properties which are sited in the same area.

Careful consideration must be used when materials and detail are considered before they are placed on these houses. In many of these areas materials like PVC and aluminium are illegal to install, with heavy penalties for people who breach planning regulations. This is why owners of Edwardian and Victorian houses sometimes have trouble finding builders and window makers to refurbish historic sash windows.

So if you're getting your antique windows or doors restored, look no further - contact John for a free quotation today.


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!
