Back at our workshop in West London, which is ideally located to serve the areas of Barnes, Richmond and Twickenham through to Kingston, Teddington, Hampton Court and the Hamptons, the sashes are fully sanded back to their original timber. If there is any rot damage to the sashes this is repaired using a specialist resin and any chips, dents or imperfections to the surfaces of the sashes are filled.
We then carefully remove any old paint that is present on the glass, re-glaze any broken panes of glass and carry out any re-puttying as required. We also take every effort to cleanup and redefine the detail of the interior molding around the glass that has often been lost due to years of wear and tear, and build-up of paint.
It is at this stage that we fit the draught-proof carriers to both the upper and lower sash that holds the draught-proof brushes. Read about our draught-proofing process.
