Sash Window Experts have a wealth of experience performing specialist window repairs, double glazing, draught proofing and renovation services for clients with period properties in Sussex and beyond. With a team of skilled craftsmen at our disposal who are passionate about preserving the UK’s architectural heritage, we offer a bespoke service to address your specific concerns when it comes to the restoration of your home’s original timber sash windows.
We understand the importance of restoring beautiful sash windows to their former glory without having to resort to architecturally unsympathetic renovation techniques. At Sash Window Experts, we make it our business to preserve and maintain the original period features that make your home unique. Let us restore and renovate your sash windows so they remain in good shape for many, many years to come.
We offer a range of restoration and repair services including glass replacement units for damaged glass such as clear float, laminated, sealed, obscure, crown, patterned and more. We also deal with window sill decay and resolve these issues by removing the existing lower box and replacing it with a new reinforced hardboard sill so that the job is done quickly and efficiently. In compliance with many local insurance companies, we are also able to fit a range of traditional centre catches and locks designed to complement the traditional sash window design, keeping the look uniform while improving your home security.
Sash Window Repairs
Our team of local craftsmen takes great pride in restoring the visual appeal and functionality of sash windows back to their former glory, whether in our joinery workshop or on site. From slide mechanisms to draught proofing, double glazing and home security, we can help renovate sash windows for all kinds of period properties, enabling you to enjoy your home’s unique character for many more years to come.
Using specialist renovation methods for manufacturing and replicating existing moulding details, our team of experts can carry out precise replacement work from our bespoke joinery workshop. Although your sash windows may look old or beyond repair, our specialist craftsmen use professional moulding techniques to create a matching profile for your existing sash windows. That way, we can faithfully replace cracked, chipped or rotten timber pieces while keeping intact all those important design features on the original windows.
Window sills and frames
Window sill decay is a common problem that can occur as a result of paint deterioration. Rather than replacing the entire box frame, Sash Window Experts can carefully remove the existing lower box assembly and replace it with a new hardwood sill section, complete with pulleys and outer linings bonded in with epoxy resin.
In doing so, we use the same original joints to maintain the strength of the box frame. Carefully piecing in new timber sections with mouldings that match the original profile allows us to prolong the life cycle of your period windows of any architectural era including Georgian sash windows.
Sash window double glazing
Our focus is on improving old, worn or defective sash windows without resorting to alternative contemporary fixtures. We do this by combining a series of classical and modern techniques to keep your sash windows in beautiful running condition.
By keeping up to date with the latest advancements in double glazing technology, we can provide restoration services that improve the quality of your sash windows, so that you can reap the benefits of modern window installations. Double glazed hard or soft wood sashes in combination with a specialist moulding facility designed to maintain the original design keeps all your essential period features intact. The result is the best of both worlds: beautiful period windows that have been brought up to modern standards.
