Sash window repair and upgrade in Birkenhead, Wirral
This beautiful, character house on the Wirral came to us after a previous contractor carried out substandard work. The client wanted to upgrade the existing, traditional sash windows to double glazed sashes. The existing sash windows were not in terrible condition, which meant we were able to rebate the old sashes and install double glazed window units. We also;
- Removed all rotting timber, and carried out full lower box replacements to all the windows. This involves removing all the timber in the lower half and doing a load bearing repair on both sides of the window. This allows the window to take the additional weight required to upgrade the windows for double glazing. Replacement timber and cills were fitted.
- All sashes were planed, repaired, re-glazed and redecorated
- Draught proofing was applied to every window. We replaced all parting 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.
In this example, we were able to install the double glazed units into the original sash windows, without the need for full replacement windows. It is worth noting, that if you allow your single glazed sash windows to deteriorate in their condition, this is not always possible and full replacements may be your only option. We will always try and repair and use your existing windows for an upgrade before suggesting replacements. If you are in any doubt about advice given by another contractor, please call us for a second opinion.
We carry out work across the Wirral, Merseyside and throughout United Kingdom, so if your windows are in need of some attention, no matter how little, call us today.
I’d like to thank you for the superb workmanship on restoring and double glazing my sash windows.
They look amazing inside and out and they have made a huge difference to the heating and reduction of noise from outside . No more draughts or fridge like front rooms!
I would also like to thank you for the courtesy you showed while you worked here; Always turning up on time and thoroughly tidying after you had finished.
As you know I have recommended you highly to friends and neighbours. And now next door also have beautifully restored and effective windows by yourself.
If you have any customers who wish to view your work they would be welcome to contact me.
Thank you again,
Dr M. Boggild
