Sash window renovation
Replacing rotten timber and using our specialist epoxy resin system means we can save almost all original sash windows, saving you money on replacement windows and keeping the original character of your period home. In the very few cases where a replacement window is unavoidable, your new window will be made using traditional methods and will look exactly as the original did.
Once we have removed your windows from their box frames decades of old paint will be removed taking your windows back to bare wood before being thoroughly sanded and mended and then painted inside and out with 4 coats of paint. The box frames will then be taken back to bare wood and any broken and rotten wood replaced and also painted inside and out. The windows will then be balanced and any extra weights added to ensure easy opening and rehung and new staff and part bead with integrated draughtproof pile installed. Finally, a coat of paint over everything and new locks and window furniture fitted, or we can use the original ones if they are there.
All the work is carried out from the inside so there is no need for scaffolding or ladders and as our sash window restoration work includes having your windows professionally painted by our qualified team there is no need to have to call in different tradesmen after we have gone. You are left with completely finished windows looking great and working perfectly.
Fixed price wherever possible
With our highly skilled and experienced tradesmen, we are able to ascertain all of the work needed on your property when we initially visit your home, enabling us the ability to proudly offer a fixed price quote on 95% of all jobs leaving you free to relax and avoid the worry of that inevitable increased final bill. We will examine places for rot on the box frame which typically include the window cills and lower box frames and the windows themselves and determine the amount of work needed. We will also examine the cords, glass and the pulleys to ascertain if any need replacing.
Where the windows are fixed in place and on the 1st floor or above we will only be able to give you an exact idea of the state of the outside once the windows are freed. Although, after working on hundreds of sash window repairs along the south coast covering Hastings, Eastbourne and Bexhill our expert team can still give you a fixed price in almost all cases. Where it is not possible because of surprises when stuck windows are released we will still give you an exact price of what the worst-case scenario would be in our initial costing so you are totally aware and in complete control of the project from start to finish.
Double glazed units for your original sash windows
Keeping the prices for our work highly competitive and the cost of materials low and transparent (you pay the same price as we do for materials) allows us to offer you the latest and best products on the market at no extra cost to you. These include the use of Slimlite self-cleaning double glazing units for your sash windows as opposed to standard slimline glazing. Using Slimlite double glazed units with its 5mm perimeter edge enables our tradesmen to avoid any visible & unsightly rubber gaskets showing on your sash windows, even on the glazing bars and avoids the need for extra-wide overpainting on the inside and outside of the glass to hide it. This ensures that your sash windows are looking as they should when painted by our professional painters and as close to looking like single pane glass as is possible.
Most manufacturers of double glazed units use the much cheaper Argon gas to fill the cavity in their units which, as a light gas has little or no effect on sound reduction. Slimlite units are guaranteed for 10 years and use Krypton gas, which is much heavier, giving you much better sound reduction and thermal insulation whilst cutting down on the amount of carbon dioxide emissions. Replacing one square metre of single glazing with Slimlite low E double glazing will provide a saving of approximately 90kg of carbon dioxide emissions per year
