What does a Sash Window Draught-seal & Overhaul Include?

In a nut shell; we repair all rotten or damaged timber and replace scratched and broken glass. The original counterweights are rebalanced and new pulley wheels installed, we re-fit the sashes to the frame attaching new, pre-stretched nylon woven cord. We then install all new staff, head and parting beads with our innovative draught-sealing system. All new catches, lifters and restrictors are fitted leaving a sash window that is air tight, glides open and is secure.

Upgrade Your Sashes

Properties that lie within restrictive planning conditions or have owners who want to cost effectively and sympathetically upgrade the sash windows in their home; often have the opportunity to retain the existing box frame of their sash window and install our new Heritage Double or Vacuum glazed sashes. Our slim profiles, glazing system and draught proofing installation ensures that your new sashes don’t only look original but perform as modern windows should, whilst minimising damage to interior decoration and retaining the historical character of the existing frame.

Secondary Glazing

Hassle free, secure, efficient and cost effective. Our secondary glazing is a great solution to swiftly warming up your home without intrusive work being carried. Secondary glazing is a great option for owners of listed properties or homes in strict planning areas who feel that they can not be granted permission to replace their windows or simply, do not want to lose the historical fabric of their property.
