Do your sash windows need repairing?
Sash windows are beautiful period features and bring so much to a property, however many of them are very old and in desperate need of an upgrade. Even newer sash windows can benefit from some maintenance – technology and materials are improving all the time, and a minor repair could make a big difference to your day-to-day life.
You might be in need of a sash window repair if you’ve noticed any of the following:
- Gaps, or ill-fitting sashes/panes of glass
- Damage to the glazing
- Draughts and cold spots
- Broken frames or rotting timber
- Damage to windowsills
- Windows that don’t open or close properly
- Damage to locks and window furniture
Sash windows can be damaged in a variety of ways, but often, they’re simply old and in need of a refurbishment. Old or damaged windows can make your property damp, cold and uncomfortable, and they can also pose security and safety risks. It’s important you arrange a repair as soon as possible.
How do you know if your
sash windows can be repaired?
It can be difficult to know whether your sash windows can be repaired, or whether you’ll need to have them replaced instead. It will depend on the condition of the windows, frames and glazing, as well as the age of the windows and the maintenance they’ve received previously. The only real way to know is to find out from experts like us, who can assess the damage and wear and tear, finding the most effective and economical solution for you.
We can talk you through all your options in detail, explaining the processes involved and advising you on the best approach.
