Sash window repair and reglazing in Birkenhead
This impressive home in Birkenhead, Wirral, came to us as direct recommendation from the neighbour. Having not had any routine maintenance for some years the sashes draughty, they rattled in the wind and some were difficult to open and close. These are all common problems with sash windows which can develop over many years. Please note that these things are easy for us to repair and there is absolutely no need for your to replace your windows for new ones. As part of our work here, we;
- 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.
We can carry out timber sash window repairs across Lancaster, Lancashire and throughout the United Kingdom, so if your windows are in need of some attention, no matter how little, call us today.
Les came recommended to us by a neighbour, so we had an opportunity to see the results of his work before he started. We suggest you do the same. He will be more than happy to show you examples of his skill, experience and commitment. He has transformed our home in terms of both appearance and comfort.
The Sash Doctor is ‘old school’ when it comes to work standards and pride in the results he achieves. No doubt some big companies will appear to offer everything you need, sometimes at an apparently attractive price but if you really want to ensure that the work is top notch and that every necessity and detail is covered, Les is your man. Let’s face it, replacing your sash windows is something you are only going to do once and is a serious investment in your property, protecting the building from the elements and providing warmer and quieter rooms in your home, something we noticed immediately after the work was completed.
Les will explain everything to you, both before and during the job, so that you will be absolutely confident that all the right things have been done. We seriously doubt that anyone has more experience and knowledge than him and there is no substitute for those qualities. No cutting corners on work standards or specifications, no ‘sales’ talk, no hidden costs and extras. He works hard and he works professionally. We paid a fair price for a really first class job. We could not be more pleased.
