Refurbish Your Existing Wooden Sash Windows

Wooden double-hung box sash windows arrived in Australia with the early European settlers. With no air conditioning available they understood that sash windows allowed for good ventilation and so were well suited to Australia’s  warmer climate. By opening both top & bottom sashes an air current is formed. Cooler air flows through the bottom as hot air vents from the top. Often the top sash has been painted shut so we restore proper operation with our weather seal and overhaul service.

Many of the original box sash windows in Australia today have been neglected and wood rot has been allowed to set in.  We use a range of traditional carpentry repairs in conjunction with modern epoxy resins to restore them to good order.

In some instance home owners have chosen to replace the original timber windows with aluminium or other window technologies, but rarely do these alterations enhance the internal or external appearance of heritage buildings.  We can remove conversions and reinstate timber sashes featuring low-e energy efficient glass or acoustic glass.

“We believe that our Australian heritage should be preserved and not replaced.”

Originally established over 20 years ago in the UK, we expanded into Australia in 2003. Sash Window Specialist have reconditioned thousands of heritage windows for many satisfied customers. All of our installation staff are fully experienced, qualified craftsmen with an extensive knowledge of Australia’s heritage timber windows and doors.
