Our Sash Window Refurbishment Services
Sash Window Specialist provides a comprehensive sash window repair service. Unlike with aluminium or uPVC windows a wide range of repairs are possible with traditional wooden windows. Indeed many that might initially appear to be beyond repair can be restored to good working order. We are experts at rebuilding rotten bay windows, repairing rot, replacing snapped sash cords as well as replacing and upgrading the old glass.
Our Sash Window Recondition & Draught Seal service will restore your windows to full functionality in addition to improving their energy efficiency with hidden draught excluders. This is our core service and provides a complete sash window overhaul that our more advanced refurbishments further build upon. Once the windows are dismantled our sash seals are built into the window components, becoming practically invisible when the window is reassembled. Draught seals in a sliding sash window don’t only stop draughts but also eliminate annoying rattles as well as reducing noise and dust ingress.
Double glazed replica sashes fitted into your existing window frames. We can match any glazing pattern including Georgian, Victorian & Edwardian architectural styles, ensuring the original heritage charm of your home remains unaltered. Accoya® wood comes with an outstanding 50-year warranty, ensuring our replacement sashes are built to last a lifetime. For over 20 years we have been installing double glazed replacement timber sashes into existing window frames, with many repeat customers.
At Sash Window Specialist we understand the need to retrofit modern glass into our period windows. Single glazing upgrades with Low-E laminated glass will improve your homes energy efficiency whilst laminated acoustic glass will improve soundproofing. Laminated glazing can be retrofitted into most, structurally sound, existing heritage windows. In some instances it is possible to retrofit double glazing into existing wooden frames.
Many heritage sash windows have had the original sashes removed and an alternative system such as louvre, aluminium or uPVC windows fitted. We can remove these ugly window conversions and refurbish the original box sash frames before reinstating timber sliding sashes. Our custom made replacement sashes are copied from photos or neighbouring property to restore the original heritage appearance and value of your period home.
When a wooden window or door has passed beyond economic repair or if a replica is required for a building extension then we supply & install bespoke joinery, authentically matching the originals. Available single or double glazed from a range of top quality hardwood and softwood timbers including Accoya® wood. Our replacement period windows conform to any conservation standards and are built to last a lifetime.
Draughty, binding or inoperable period casement windows are a familiar problem for owners of period properties. Sash Window Specialist offer a range of casement window refurbishment services including draught sealing, rot repair, glazing upgrades, double glazing & bespoke replacement casement windows.
Front doors, patio doors and french windows can be refurbished and improved with our overhaul and draught proofing service. We can retrofit low-e or acoustic laminated glass into your existing doors and side panels thereby improving your homes energy efficiency and comfort.
Replacement double glazed patio, french doors and side panels can be made to measure at our sash window workshop.
Established for over 20 years
Sash Window Specialist is a heritage window conservation company whose aim is to repair your existing period windows rather than up-selling you replacement windows. As a result we have rebuilt and restored many original timber windows, that another sash window company had previously condemned. Remember that to repair period window frames is usually far less expensive than replacing windows. Because we aim to retain the original frame, our rotten window repair services are also the best way to preserve the original character and architectural significance of period homes and all heritage properties.
We are not a formal franchise, every branch is simply an individual window restoration company that has been vetted for quality and honesty before adopting our brand-name and appearing on this website.
