Sash window draught excluders,
Specialists in grade 1 and 2 listed and period properties,
Heritage buildings undertaken,
We can supply and fit: Float, toughened, laminate and slimlite glazing,
We can save any original sash and box frame window,
- The Sashes and box frames can only be fully restored whilst the window is out of the frame, If they have already been fitted with draught excluders, the paint cannot be stripped completely back to bare wood which is then sanded and primed. The draught excluders that are fitted to the staff, parting beads and the top and mid rail of the sash windows. Draught.Excluders are made of nylon no heat can be put near them.These areas need to be stripped completely back to bare wood be for refitting. Trying to repair the window once it has been put back is very difficult and time consuming affecting the cost and quality of the job. We can restore and save any rotten sash with on site carpentry and using the dry flex system as shown and explained on our website http://sashheritagerestoration.com . We also store original sashes that have been taken out and replaced for new or plastic, if in stock we can use parts to restore your sash with seasoned quality reclaimed timber.
- Also all areas of the box frame where the sash windows move up and down on the frame will have all the old paint work stripped completely back to bare wood sanded thoroughly and primed . This is the one and only chance to make a full restoration of your sash windows before they are refitted . so many times we been asked to decorate sash windows after companies have been employed to fit draught excluders to the sash windows . I must point out that fitting new staff and parting beads is the most easiest of all carpentry . Restoration of sash windows is preparation decoration and glazing ,very often taking out old loose and ugly putty and then re putty . This restoration to your sash window is 90 percent of the work needed for full refurbishment unless rotten wood is found in and around the sash window . Then carpentry and the dry flex system is used . We can save any traditional sash window The only way we could decorate the sash windows was to take them out again. So the best advice we can give on refurbishing your sash window is do not have draught excluders fitted before preparation to the sash window and all areas on the box frame where the sashes move up and down on has been completed ready for final decoration for the perfect finish We also supply and fit all types of glass including crown and cylinder glass on site . All sashes are replaced securely at the end of each day .
New Sashes can be supplied and fitted but we endeavor to save your original window, which will also keep your costs down.
After full preparation and glazings of your sash window they are refitted

- I use the "Wood Care" system which is sold in all Dulux and Brewers .As explained and shown on our website
- This method ensures a permanent repair, which enables you to keep your original Sash window, which is seasoned wood. This greatly reduces your costs and maintains the original features of your property.
New sash windows are made of kiln-dried wood which is a lesser quality than a refurbished original sash, which does not have the same quality or beauty of the traditional sash window.
The modern long lasting paints that we use last much longer on your original, traditional sash window
Which is made of season wood
