Yorkshire Sliding Sash Window Repair
Repairing your windows to their original state is our utmost priority. In over 90% of cases we deal with, full repairs are possible, which is substantially cheaper than replacements. We will always opt to repair your windows as long as it is economically viable for you.
By repairing and replacing sills of individual windows or by splicing in new sections of reclaimed or new timber we can restore and rejuvenate your windows to near original condition.
- Checking and re-hanging to ensure easy sliding
- Sash cords replaced and sash weights adjusted to balance
- Upper and lower sashes released
- Fitting of new centre catch, sash lifts and sash pulls
- Staff beads, parting beads and sash cords removed and discarded
- Removal and replacement of any loose putty
- draught proofing
All the window repair techniques we use are the same as those used over one hundred years ago.
