Sash Window Renovation
Sash Window Experts have many years of experience in the renovation of period properties in Brighton, Hove and beyond. We will do everything we possibly can to ensure that the installation of alternative contemporary windows in your home is not required.
Whether your property features Victorian, Edwardian or Georgian sash windows, we can restore your old windows back to their former glory by improving the old or worn-out frames and fittings. Our craftsmen combine classic and modern techniques, such as specialist moulding facilities to maintain the original design and install double-glazed window panes.
Thanks to our meticulous sash window renovation methods, we are able to substantially prolong the lifespan of your home’s period features. That way, Sash Window Experts deliver the best of both worlds: professionally restored and renovated sash windows that have been improved to a very high modern standard, making them fit for the homes of today and tomorrow.

We can restore and upgrade your period sash windows in Brighton by

Draught Proofing for Sash Windows
Poorly fitting old sash windows that rattle and let in draughts and dust are among the most popular reasons why householders may be tempted to consider modern replacement windows. But with the right skills, it is perfectly possible to draught-proof sash windows very effectively.
At Sash Window Experts in Brighton, we have perfected the art of fitting an unobtrusive draught-proofing system that won’t compromise the visual appeal of your period windows while delivering the following benefits:
- Significant draught reduction
- No more window rattling
- Reduced outside noise
- Smooth window operation
We can carry out draught proofing as a standalone service or as part of a more comprehensive window renovation project. Take a look at one of our recent draught-proofing projects here and get in touch for a free quote.
Sash Window Replacement
Occasionally, though thankfully very rarely, it is the case that an original sash window really is beyond the point of repair. If we encounter a window that cannot be saved, Sash Window Experts can manufacture and replicate existing moulding details and carry out precise replacement work for your period window.
And with double-glazing technology advancing all the time, we take the opportunity to install new double-glazed hard or soft wood sashes that use the Warm Edge Technology of modern sealed units while at the same time replicating the original moulding and horn detail of your original windows.
Sash Window Experts offer a comprehensive range of services for sash window restoration in Brighton & Hove. If you have a period property with original sash windows that have seen better days, contact us today at 0800 197 0129 and speak to our friendly team to find out how we can help bring them back to life.
My original sash windows are noisy and draughty and I am not sure what to do about them. Can you help?
Absolutely we can. Get in touch to arrange for us to visit your home and inspect your problem windows. It’s an excellent opportunity to get professional advice and guidance on how best to maintain your sash windows. Our window surveys are free and without obligation.
Can you take out my modern UPVC windows and put timber sash windows back in?
Yes, we regularly carry out work for customers who wish to reinstate sash windows into their period property. We can advise on the type and design of windows that would be most suitable for your property and carry out a full installation. Improving the appearance of your home in this way can help to increase its value.
Do I need planning permission for sash window restorations?
If your property is a listed building or is located in a conservation area, it is highly likely that you will need planning permission before you can make any significant alterations or repairs. It’s always best to check with your local planning authority rather than make an assumption.
