Sash Window Repair and Restoration
Remember how good your windows used to look? Sashwise specialise in restoring your original timber sash windows to their former glory. We carry out a full repair service to get the back to full working order, draught proof and rattle-free. We will also completely and sympathetically restore the windows, so they look like new without losing any original features.
Is this for you?
How does the restoration service work?
We remove your timber sashes and take them off-site to our workshop in Twickenham.
At our workshop, we strip the sashes back to the wood, rebuild the joints, the glass is cleaned and re-sealed into the frames, rot repairs are carried out, then the sashes are primed, undercoated and two finish coats are applied using paint from The Little Green Paint Company.
On-site we restore the sash boxes by stripping back to wood, rot repairs are carried out, and new hardwood sills are installed. The boxes are then painted to finish coat. Once the sashes and sash boxes are restored, then the sashes are re-installed incorporating a draught-proofing system and new waxed cotton sash cords.
Finally, new sash window furniture and locks are fitted. This process takes approx. one week. During this time the windows will be boarded up with security boards when we are not on site.
