Can I install double glazing into my original sash window?
- Yes, this is an option. We completely understand the importance of staying up-to-date with the latest advances in double-glazing technology. That is why we also offer double-glazed hard or soft wood sashes that maintain the original design and keep all those essential period features intact. Using the existing original box frame, we can simply fit a new pair of double-glazed sashes.
Sash Window Renovation in Reigate
We offer a replacement and repair service that is designed to prolong the lifespan of period windows and doors. With our skilled craftsmen capable of carrying out precise replacement manufacturing work, we can carefully piece in new sections of timber using specialist moulding techniques to create a matching profile of your existing sash windows.
How is it possible to repair window cill decay?
- Cill decay is a common problem. The cill is the bottom section of the window where most water tends to collect. After a while, the paint will flake allowing water to penetrate into the timber which can quickly turn to decay. If there are any water marks underneath your sash window, your sill may be rotting.
Our craftsmen deal with cill decay by removing an existing lower box and replacing it with a new hardboard cill. Instead of replacing an entire box frame, a new cill will provide a good foundation for your sash window, and the job can be completed quickly and efficiently.
Can glass damage be repaired?
- Windowpane damage can occur for many reasons, often lying undetected for long periods. Our experienced team can replace damaged glass on existing sash windows without damaging the original frame. Our comprehensive range of glass replacement units includes a number of glazing options including clear float, laminated, toughened, crown, patterned, sealed and obscure.
Finally, in compliance with the security requirements of many insurance companies, we can add a variety of traditional centre catches and locks in a wide range of different colours and finishes to suit your sash window design preferences.
