The sash window restoration service entails the original sashes to be removed from sash boxes and temporarily replaced with look-alike sashes. Whilst the sashes are out of the frames our second team repairs and decorates the window frames.

The original sashes are taken to our workshop for a mutually agreed number of days.

The sashes are sanded down properly and repaired where appropriate - bringing the molding profiles back to original. In order to prolong the life of the sashes, critical joints are strengthened using a unique process.

At this stage, if so required by the customer, all glass is replaced. We also offer the option of installing traditional crown glass which gives the windows that original Victorian appearance.

The sashes are then treated and hand painted with the Dulux Weathershield system, giving extra care to critical locations where paint first tends to start showing signs of wear and tear.

Once the paint has dried properly and we are completely satisfied that the sashes have been restored to their original magnificence, they are returned to the boxes where they are resealed and final decoration of the rest of the frames commence.
