Sash window repairs Oxton, Wirral

We have recently started the 1st phase of restoration and draught proofing of  sash windows to a property in Oxton, Wirral. These two windows were in the basement of the property and looked as though they hadn't been touched since the house was built over a 100 years ago. Apart from one cill replacement, the timber in the boxes and sashes was still in great condition, and the customer couldn't believe how well they looked once completed. We now have six other windows to install our Double Glazed Accoya sashes into. Keep an eye out for more photos as the job progresses.

Spring Balances or Traditional Cords and Weights

We now offer two choices of mechanism when upgrading your box sash windows, to our fully finished, Accoya double glazed sashes. 

We can now install your sashes using top of the range Spring balances, instead of the traditional cords and weights approach.

Using balances avoids the need for expensive lead weights as the double glazed units add a significant amount of weight compared to the old single glazed sashes. Spring balances also overcome the issue of binding or jamming that sometimes occurs when obstacles or space is at a minimum in the box frame. Fitting Spring balances allows us to fill in the apperture left behind the old pulley wheel, stopping any draughts finding their way in through the box and cavities of your walls, making your windows even more energy efficient. 

 

Importance of Period Windows

We often get asked....."isn't it better to replace with PVC?"  

No! 

Keeping your period property's original windows, and utilising our sash window draught proofing and restoration service, will not only stop the draughts and rattles associated with old sash windows, but will add value to your home, by retaining its original features, such as the old drawn glass, with all its imperfections, any original panneling, architraves and mouldings.

Windows are often overlooked as having an importance on how a building looks, but choose any street near by that has a selection of old property's, and compare the houses that have had PVC Windows installed, to the houses that still retain their original sash windows, and I'm sure you'll agree. 

So, before you decide to replace your sash windows, get in touch with us first to see what we can do..... 

 

Customer Feedback

It's always nice when our customers get in touch and tell us how they feel about our work. After today's installation of our double glazed sashes, our customer returned home to her new bedroom windows, and sent us this  message. 

"Thrilled with the windows Terry. It feels so quiet! While you are here tomorrow could you do a quick estimate for the downstairs bay window? Then I know how much I need to save up. So impressed with the results upstairs. Thanks again. Gaynor"

Sash restoration and Double glazing, Kendal, Cumbria.

Following on from our previous work at the Cumbrian wildlife trust, in Kendal, we have just completed another window on the rear elevation in time for the cold weather. The old single glazed sashes were swapped out for our hardwood double glazed sashes, containing low e glass and argon gas filled cavities.  The existing box frame was renovated, including a new hardwood cill as the existing cill was rotten.

Sash window draught proofing, Ulverston, Cumbria

Just completed the sash window restoration and draught proofing of this lovely old property in the centre of Ulverston, Cumbria. The windows were painted shut and the owners couldn't get any ventilation during the summer months. They wanted their windows to work but more importantly they also wanted them to be free from draughts and rattles. We overhauled the box frames and original sashes, repairing any rotten timber and installing our draught proofing system. The Windows now open easily,and  are free from draughts. Another happy customer!

Window shutters

Restoring your traditional timber window shutters back to working condition adds another form of insulation to single glazed windows found in traditional properties. Quite often we find these traditional features have been sealed shut from years of paint build up. We can get them working again, adding much needed insulation for the cold winter months, as well as added privacy and security.
