Restoration of Sash windows in Guildford, Surrey
An imposing house in the heart of leafy Surrey with many sash windows windows. The house was undergoing a complete refurbishment and we came recommended to the client via another customer in the area. Much of the technical work was applied to the bay window at the rear of the house, which we re-modeled and restored. 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 re-modeling allowed the window to have more shape and protrude its edges into the garden. The interior was in the end much more appealing and pretty.
