Using the latest slimline double glazed units on the market there is no need for unsightly painting onto the glass to hide the thick double glazing gaskets found on many other older products . You get the look of original glass with all the benefits of modern double glazing
Another sash window restoration job in Eastbourne underway. Working along the coast repairing and restoring sash windows in Eastbourne, Bexhill, Hastings and Brighton we come across sash windows with all sorts of problems. Here the lower box frame was rotten and needed replacing. When the box frames are damaged like this water soon soaks into the wall below causing damage to the inside of the room so its a job worth doing as soon as possible.
A sash window which has been slowly eaten away by decades of salt air. We will replace all the damaged wood and have this window looking as good as new m
Somebody had been a bit over eager applying the putty to the outside of this window in the past. We will remove the old and replace with 2 part rapid set putty which will allow us to paint the outside before we move on to the next job
The finished product! All windows restored to their former glory with new locks and handles and completely decorated inside and out.
Recent sash window renovation job in Hastings. All the windows were fixed in place and painted shut with decades of paint. We took all the windows out and completely restored them getting them back to their original working condition and finished them off with a professional paint job and new window furniture and pulleys.
Extensive sash window renovation job in Eastbourne. Window cills replaced along with lower box frames as well as the sash windows themselves in need of urgent repair. All 18 windows restored to their original glory and looking striking in grey with new window furniture.
Recently completed job renovating 7 sash windows. The customers had their sash windows renovated and painted by another company last year and were in such a poor state that they called us in to completely do them again. None of the windows opened properly as there was not enough attention put into balancing them. Rotten wood had been left in place and painted over and the finished paint job consisted of a splash of primer undercoat over everything....including the old flaky paint. So our job on these recently renovated windows consisted of removing all rotten wood from windows and box frames and replacing with new. Repairing all sash windows and making sure all the joints were strong and secure. Removing and replacing any broken glass and any loose and cracked putty. Sanding windows back to original wood and making it as smooth as possible ready for our professional painters to work their magic. Old pulleys were removed and holes cut to fit the new replacement pulleys which run on ball bearings enabling silent running of your sash windows and incredibly little effort to open and close them.
It takes years of renovating sash windows to get them looking and working this good and years of painting sash windows to know exactly where, and where not to paint the windows and the box frame. Most of the windows we come across have been painted shut and this is easily avoided by letting our experts finish your windows. Sash windows can only ever be made to look and work as they originally did when they are painted during the renovation process, while they are out of the box frame.
Below are the finished windows from the outside. As you can see the outside is finished in an off black matching the colour of the new pulleys and sash cord and window furniture. Here you can see the benefits of J&D Sash Renovations expertise and attention to detail come into its own. It is our ability to bring together all our expertise in carpentry, glazing, window installing and painting and decoration that enables us to offer you this level of finish.
Another project completed by J&D Sash Renovations
Large restoration job in a conservation area in Brighton we recently finished in September 2020. All the sash windows were in a very poor condition with rotten window cills that needed replacing and extensive repairs to the box frames. All this had to be done before we fitted the 28 slimline double glazing units into them. We managed to save all of the original sash windows and box frames so when we had finished the restoration all the original character of the property was still there with the added bonus of windows that now performed to modern day standards with built in invisible draught proofing and new smooth running pulleys.
In the pictures above you can see how the use of white gaskets in the construction of the slimline double glazed units and keeping the original sash windows makes the finished product look like normal glass. Keeping our prices competitive and always making sure our customers pay exactly the same price for materials as we do, enables us to be able to offer the very latest products made to the highest standards. All the work above was finished off by our team of professional decorators leaving the customer with a totally finished product looking as good as the day they were originally made 120 years ago whilst performing as if they were made yesterday.
