Over time original timber sash windows can begin to rot and become less efficient at keeping your home warm and secure.
If you’re living in a dated property, especially a Georgian property, it may be time for a sash window restoration or replacement!
Often, property owners look for sash window restorations as their windows no longer retain heat in the property, making your indoor space particularly cold in the winter. This is a very common problem with older timber windows as they simply are not built for heat retention but for the beauty.
Other common problems that sash window owners experience is rotting, warping and cracking window frames. As timber is a natural material, it tends to break down more easily and decay after years of weather damage and temperature changes.

Is a Sash window restoration the best option for your home?
This is largely based on the level of damage and whether they need full replacing overall. If you opt for the restoration this may only be a short term solution, however, the joints will be cleaned, the gaps filled, the windows painted and primed, and any hardware updated and/or installed. Pulleys may also be rebalanced for ease of opening and closing on stiffer windows.
Choosing between a replacement or a restoration comes down to whether you’re looking to fix cosmetic issues or small damages or you’re looking to improve the performance of your property without loosing the traditional appearance of your sash windows.
