    What is William Richard’s Sash Window Restoration method?

    Our tried and tested WRSW restoration method can be applied to both residential and commercial properties in Stoke-on-Trent and can be broken down into three main sections: 

    • First, our experienced and highly-skilled craftsmen carefully dismantle the beading and cut the cord to remove the sashes. We understand that each restoration project is different and therefore thoroughly inspect the frame and sashes to determine the work required before replacing any rotten timber, loose putty or broken glass. 
    • Next, we service the original hardware, including the pulleys and catches, and replace it with new, innovative hardware if necessary. The wax cord is replaced with a pre-stretched nylon woven sash cord that is less prone to snapping. We then carefully weigh the sashes and ensure they are correctly balanced.
    • Draughts and rattles are often the most common issue with sash windows, so once we’ve re-hung the sashes we then precisely mitre and install the insulation beading to ensure the windows are draughtproof. Before completing the restoration, we test the sashes to make sure they operate effectively, lock correctly and are perfectly balanced.

    What Our Customers Think

    FAQ

    Frequently Asked Questions

    What Advantages Do Sash Windows Offer?
    As well as looking great, the properties of sash windows mean that they’re perfect for controlling aeration and the flow of air in your home. These windows are incredibly secure, meaning you’re always protected, even if you prefer to leave the window open.
    How Do You Restore My Sash Windows?
    With years of experience, we use our skills and knowledge to restore tired windows. We start by carefully dismantling the beading before inspecting the frame and sashes. All broken and rotten materials are removed before we service the pulleys, hardware, and cards. The sashes are weighed and balanced before the frames are primed. Once all of these is done, we re-hang the sashes and re-apply the beading. Everything is tested before we leave.
    Can I Replace the Windows of a Listed Property?
    The rules around listed properties can be complex, but we’re here to provide the best help and advice to our customers. Usually, you need permission from the local authority to replace windows in listed buildings and we can help you in your correspondence with them. Get in touch now if you need this kind of assistance.
    What Is CAD Drawing?
    Computer-Aided Design (CAD) drawing is a process in which everything we’re going to do is generated and displayed electronically first. This allows you to see the potential results of our work before we start. As well as reducing errors, it also helps to find the perfect solution for a project.
    How Long Does Window Installation Take?
    This depends on what needs to be done. If you need permission from a local authority and particular windows, then the timeframe will be longer than standard sash window installation or a residential property. When you first arrange a project with our team, we’ll endeavor to provide an accurate timescale for you.
