Sash Window Restorations

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.

If you’re concerned about losing the beauty of your home, our team have a great track record when it comes to keeping the traditional look of a building – just take a look at our portfolio.

Is a Sash window restoration the best option for your home?

 

When you are considering a sash window restoration there are some factors you should consider.

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. 

If you’re looking for a quick fix, sash window restorations are a great option and costs less than a full replacement if the windows are already in a good enough condition.
If you’re interested in improving the windows efficiency and searching for a more long-term fix, a replacement may be the way to go and will save you more money in the long term.

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. 

We offer a range of of UPVC sash windows which offer a fantastic alternative and long term solution that still keep to the aesthetic of your home.

Adding Value to Your Period Property

Period properties across the UK are often highly sought after and demand high sale prices!

Although, there are ways to further add value to these elegant and refined buildings…

 

A good place to start is restoring or repairing any windows that may still have the original wooden sash windows. By updating your properties sash windows the building looks and feels more attractive, whilst also providing better security, energy efficiency, and noise protection. 

We recommend avoiding installing modern plastic windows because no matter how hard you try, nothing could match the beauty and style of traditional wooden sash windows! The plastic could also reduce the price of a period property due to the building losing its traditional aesthetic. In some conservation areas, where period properties may be located, the fitting of UPVC windows has now been made illegal within the UK.

 

If you’re concerned about legislations, our team have a fantastic track record when it comes to meeting building regulations – just take a look at our portfolio.

 

Another way to increase the value is changing or repairing the front door.

 

Using our highly trained craftsmen we can draught-proof, repair, and refurbish timber doors, giving your house the spruce up it deserves. If the door has unfortunately gone to a state of no return, our team are more than happy to design a new door that keeps with the character of your property or replicates the previous door down to each and every detail.

 

Hardware is also just as important as the windows and doors when it comes to a properties value and security. A brand new beautifully polished, lacquered door knob and knocker could add that little bit of shine your building has been needing, potentially attracting a buyers eye and improving the security.

 

At Sash Windows Northwest our craftsmen take the time to create handmade pieces of hardware that can be tailored to suit your individual requirements.

 

If you’re looking to increase the value, save on your energy bills, or just change up the buildings style, contact our team today! Please feel free to call us on 01772 619787 or email us at sashwindowsnorthwest@gmail.com to enquire about a survey or project.

Completed Project in Preston, Lancashire

Completed Project in Preston, Lancashire

This is a job we have recently completed in Preston City Centre. We were able to renovate and fraught-proof all of the original sash windows, which was a large job to undertake. However, we are so pleased with the outcome of the project and the windows are looking absolutely fabulous.
Throughout the whole project there was only one window that required a new sash window into its original box! The building is looking in great shape and we’re thrilled to have worked with this client.

This month we have been working on a new project over in Liverpool. The project has been working to restore and renovate a number of windows in the commercial property. We are still working on the windows in this building, as it is a fairly large project. However, we really wanted to show you some of the work done so far.
Below you can see one area of the buildings windows which we have completed so far. This small window was in need of some TLC as the timber had extensive rot and needed to be restored. We carried out our high-quality techniques and you can see the finished result looks absolutely fantastic. This should make the window much more durable and draught proof!

Sash Window Renovation Ribchester

Sash Window Renovation Ribchester

Sash window renovation has been carried out on a domestic project in Ribchester. The Sash Windows Northwest team worked hard on this sash window renovation project, which involved a number of our services.

The original sash window boxes needed to be renovated due to their condition. This meant that the windows were entirely changed. We installed new sash windows to the property that had double glazing to help reduce noise and heat loss from the building. The new double glazed sashes were fitted with slimlite glass too.

Have a look below at the results. You can see the fantastic improvement this sash window renovation project has had on the look of the property. But the results won’t stop there. These new sash windows will help to keep draughts out and the warmth in. We’re over the moon to have worked on this project.

Sash Window Renovation and Draught Proofing Crosby

Sash Window Renovation and Draught Proofing Crosby

Sash window renovation and draught proofing has been carried out on project based over in Crosby, Liverpool. The Sash Windows Northwest team worked hard on this sash window restoration project, which involved a number of services.

We have used our draught proofing techniques to help improve the durability of the properties sash windows. Our process ensures that the functionality of the windows remains entirely operational, with absolutely no alterations to how the windows look. This work will not only reduce draughts caused by the sash windows, but it will help to control dust and window rattling too.

The team carried out extensive rot repair in the windows, as well as splice work where we removed the decayed timber back to the areas which were not rotted. We then replaced the wood with a new timber splice that is cut to size. We also had to rebuild a number of the sashes in the windows due to the level of decay of the wood.

The end result looks absolutely fantastic and we’re thrilled to have worked on this project.
