Sash Window repair and restoration in Bolton
A beautiful cottage, set back off the road in the lovely village of Belmont in Bolton. The 10 sash bay window and the timber sash window cill were completely rotten all the way around and required complete restoration. These windows had not seen any routine maintenance for some years ad although the repair work was extensive, this option is still cost effective and far less expensive than buying and replacing your sash windows. We also;
- Removed all rotting timber, and carried out full lower box replacements to all the windows. This involved removing all the timber in the lower half of each window and doing a load bearing repair on both sides of the window. This gives the window it’s strength and the ability to take all load from the house above it.
- All sashes were planed, and repairs, and the five bottom sashes also re-glazed. All window areas were redecorated.
- Draught proofing was applied to every window. We replaced all parting and staff beads with new timber alternatives which incorporated an engineered draught strip. Not a piece of plastic in sight!
- All new windows were fitted with new centre lock catches and lifters. We have these available in a number of finishes, including chrome, brass, brushed steel and antique brass.
The new windows made such a difference to the look and feel of the house. As a result of the work the windows are less draughty, the house feels warmer and there has been a significant reduction the the noise that can be heard from outside.
