Sash Window Repair and restoration in Lancaster
A stunning stone cottage in Dolphinholme, Lancaster, whose sash windows were in need of the Sash Doctor. These windows had not seen any routine maintenance for some years and as a result the sashes were rotten, the windows were sticking and difficult to open. Many of the sashes required an entire refurbishment, which meant rebuilding parts of the sashes from scratch. Please note this is still 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 are 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.
The new windows made such a difference to the look and feel of the house. The contrast of a well decorated window against the beautiful Lancashire stone is hard to beat.
