Retain and Upgrade Your Existing Sash Windows

As well as producing new timber windows and doors in Manchester, William Richards Sash Windows also offers flexible service solutions to draught-seal, repair and overhaul your existing sash windows. Our passion and knowledge for the craft allow us to carefully utilise innovative hardware and modern techniques to overhaul and repair all aspects of deteriorated sash windows.

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 ensure 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.

Commercial Projects

William Richards Sash Windows works closely with developers, contractors, and maintenance companies of all sizes to tackle sash window maintenance projects of any size. Each project comes with its own unique challenges, and that’s why our team of surveyors, project managers, and installers works hard to suit your project deadline, budget, and bespoke requirements.
