Sash window upgrade and repair in Newchurch, Rossendale
This beautiful, character house in Rossendale was a pleasure to work on. 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.
We carry out work across Rossendale and throughout Lancashire, so if your windows are in need of some attention, no matter how little. Call us today.
Having recently finished the complete refurbishment of all my sash windows which entailed repairing the existing sashes wherever possible and only replacing with new sashes where absolutely necessary and also installing double glazed units throughout. I would have no hesitation in recommending you to any prospective customers. The workmanship has been of the highest standard throughout and the overall effect of the double glazing combined with the elimination of draughts has resulted in a marked improvement in the warmth of the house.
I would also wish to express my appreciation as regards the radiator covers you created in a style which reflects the age of the house. These have made an immediate visual improvement to the rooms involved.
Again, my thanks for all you have done
