Period house with lots of windows

Sash Window Repairs

We take an enormous amount of pride in the standard of sash window repair work we carry out, and in being able to extend the lifespan of period windows and doors. Cill decay is a common problem due to paint deterioration, so we offer a repair service that helps to restore sash windows to their original strength and functionality. We utilise the same joints that were originally used to maintain strength and make the most of a specialist epoxy resin to strengthen the tenon joints that are used in sash construction. To achieve the best possible finish we remove any part of the frame that’s been affected by rot prior to applying the resin.

Sash Window Renovation

We have an extensive range of sash window services available, one of which is our specialist renovation service. We start by ensuring the surrounding room is completely dust sheeted and all our power tools are set up with dust extraction. We then proceed to remove the sashes from the box frame, smooth out the paint build up and prime any bare timber. It’s also important to realign meeting rails and glazing bars so that unobtrusive seals can be installed. In order to make sure the essential slide mechanism is smooth and operates correctly, we replace the old staff beads with brand-new, specially manufactured beads. It’s as simple as that!

Double Glazing

We realise that double glazing is an essential part of any modern domestic property, so we work with the latest advances in the double glazing industry. We offer beautiful double-glazed hard or soft wood sashes that incorporate warm edge technology yet still manage to retain all the essential period features you want including the original moulding designs. We carry out the work in our very own joinery workshop with skilled and experienced craftsmen onboard.

Additional Services

We also fix draught-proofing seals for casement windows and doors, both of which are commonly found in period properties across the South East. We manufacture specially-sized seals to achieve a snug fit between the frame and the door or window. Another of our services includes the replacement of damaged glass and the fitting of new security fixtures. We have a wide range of security catch locks for sash windows available in a range of different styles and finishes to suit your preferences. If we need to replace broken glass, we offer a wide range of glass units including clear float, laminated, toughened, crown and sealed.

What Our Customers Say

Helen Thomas
If I could clone you for all the other work we need to do over the next few years, I would! Thank you Mark for having such a good team in place. And huge thank you to Gary, Alex, John and Glen for taking such care of our windows and giving them what they needed after years (decades?) of neglect. Your attention to detail and 'doing it right' was very much appreciated, and your ability to solve problems was awesome. Helen & Tim, Godalming

Amazing service from start to finish, no issues and no drama. The name Sash Window Experts is well chosen. Mark and his team - Gary and John were extremely helpful and professional and the end product - new sash sound proof double glaze windows upstairs and the kitchen triple sash window restored was top quality. I am very grateful to Sash Window Experts.
Amy Clarke
Cannot fault Mark and his team. We replaced the original sashes to our 1890's home with new like-for-like hardwood double glazed sash windows, and apart from being warmer, quieter, cleaner and altogether much smarter, you really wouldn't tell the difference - an amazing feat! They are absolutely beautiful windows, so well crafted and fitted, and the restoration of rot on the original box is imperceptible. Gary was friendly, clean, professional, and safe throughout the fitting, and very thoughtful in causing minimal disruption to the home. Absolutely thrilled with everything from the service to the price to the final finish. Delighted with them. Would recommend in a heartbeat.
Alison Fordham
We were nervous about getting our Victorian French windows restored and had received a ridiculously high quote. Sash Window Experts came in at a good price, gave a timeframe that worked with our schedule and did a great job. All as promised. The fitter, Gary, put the doors back in with great care and took time made sure they worked smoothly and also discussed any queries with us. Definitely made the job value for money. Very happy customers! We are looking forward to beign able to open our doors again and enjoy the garden. Thank you Mark and Co!

Our house is Edwardian and has the original sash windows from 1906. I really want to make sure that any double glazed windows did not look out of place - so the woodwork, including the side bars etc should still be very thin to match the originals. I was fearing ending up with fat wooden bars but Mark took me to see a previous customer and I was happy to see the woodwork there and it put my mind at rest. We went for the thin Krypton windows. Now the windows are in they look very good and match very well. To be fair to everybody, we will not know until the winter how well they remedy our warmth and condensation issues in the house but are confident we made the right choice. Other suppliers would not do separate window panes and instead would only do a large window with a false wooden strip down the middle to make them look like two. We did not want that. The carpenters, Steve and Gary turned up on time (early actually) and got on with the job very efficiently and left no mess behind. I am very happy with the company and the windows.
Natasha Birley
Mark and his team are amazing. They restored our sash windows and doors. Mark is really knowledgeable and passionate and explained the process to me so I knew exactly what they would be doing. Once the work commenced I was amazed by how well they draft proofed the windows. They took so much care and the guys were polite, tidy, timely and a joy to have around. I would absolutely recommend the team to anyone thinking of restoring their windows, they look AMAZING!

Used these guys to do a total refurbishment on the windows of my 1870s Victorian Villa style house. Incredibly happy with the work and the guys doing it are just superb. On time to the minute every day, clearly take pride in the work they do and super friendly. Would not hesitate to use again!
