Sash Window Restoration, Repair & Repainting

(For alternate sash window services please see Sash Window Installation, Sash Window Replacement and Draught-Proofing Sash Windows).

Traditional sash windows are prone to degradation and deterioration over time and symptoms can include:

  • Rattling from warped wood frames
  • Mould formation from moisture in cracks
  • Jamming and sticking of sashes
  • Draughts from loose panes and frames (see Draught-Proofing Sash Windows)
  • Flaking paint & unkempt appearance

We offer a custom service that can fix any or all of these problems with your existing sash windows which can save you a bundle. In many cases these jobs require the removal of the entire sash to complete the task properly. For this reason we recommend that you commission multiple tasks during a service if necessary.

Repainting Sash Windows

In order to properly repaint sash windows, they must be fully dismantled in order to access the hard-to-reach areas. Draught-proofing offers the ideal opportunity to repaint and finish the sash windows to their former glory. In addition to the full service outlined above we;

1. Burn off inner liner of sash window box & sill
2. Burn off all paint to sashes (with the exception of the delicate mouldings around glass
3. Mouldings around glass are rubbed down in preparation for paintwork
4. Sand down internal box frame architrave and nosing
5. Repair, fill and sand down any exposed areas
6. Repaint all with three coats of M.V.P (micro-porous) acrylic white paint
7. Completely reseal external box frame
8. Remove any paint on glass up to existing putty lines and replace any loose or missing putty

By the time we finish the job, a minimum of 90% of the draught will be eradicated and you will be able to open your sash windows with ease and without any rattles. This cost-effective work will not require any major structural work to be carried out. Security locks are insurance-approved & child safe. Restoring your existing sash windows is a great way of keeping down the cost of sash windows, and giving your home a face-lift at the same time.

Why should I restore rather than replace my existing sash windows?

  • Often cheaper than replacing windows and frames altogether
  • Better for environment – less wasted materials
  • Faster job completion as frames do not need to be removed
  • Avoid devaluing your home by retain the original windows
