Sash window renovation
Replacing rotten timber and repairing using our specialist epoxy resin system means we can save almost all original sash windows, saving you money on replacement windows and keeping the character of your period home. In the 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.
During the restoration process we will remove your windows from their box frames, decades of old paint will be removed taking your windows back to bare wood before being thoroughly sanded to a smooth finish ready to be decorated inside and out. The box frames will then be taken back to bare wood and any broken and rotten wood repaired and the pulleys serviced or replaced before being painted inside and out. The windows are then balanced and any extra weights added to ensure easy opening and rehung and new staff and part bead with integrated draught proof 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 by J&D Sash Renovations' full-time team of carpenters and painters from start to complete finish with absolutely no third party companies involved. You are left with completely finished windows looking great and working perfectly.
