About our Sash Windows London – Sash Window Repair Services
We offer a full range of sash windows services. Before replacing your windows entirely there’s a great deal of work we can do to fully refurbish sash windows. London is fortunately teeming with high quality builders and joiner shops. Access to high quality sill sections and rails has never been so handy. Normally we can carry out emergency repairs same day, and scheduled sash window repairs will normally have a three to four week waiting time only. Below is a list of our key sash window services.
Sash Window Sill Repair
We can replace or splice original sash window sills. This normally costs in the region of £140 – £180 per window. We can use softwood Pine or hardwood called Sapele. Both options last well with Sapele being that little bit better. That said, if you decorate your sash windows nicely then there is no reason why they won’t last.
Sash Windows London – Overhaul Special
We will replace all sash cords, parting bead, and staff bead. Normally when we are overhauling, we will install a draught proofing system. Surprisingly, some clients like ventilation from their sash windows, and this is exactly the service for them.
London Sash Windows Draught Proofing System and Prices
We offer cost effective solutions to all sash window problems. Our draught proofing systems start as little as £200 per window and this includes new furniture and an overhaul. Our sash window draught proofing system is guaranteed for five years and in almost all cases will last twice that. Longer if you frequently clean up your brush piles after we are gone. Since the brush pile is made of nylon.
There’s no limit to how long the sash window draught proofing system will last really. It’ll boil down to how caked up they are with dirt and debris as to their effectiveness. The sash cords we use are British made and designed to last in excess of twenty years. The cords have a high strength nylon core, with natural material covering to look authentic, but offer incredible strength compared with more original ‘ropes’.
Sash Windows London Double Glazing Options and Costs
If sash window draught proofing isn’t effective enough for sound proofing, we offer high quality sash window double glazing to original sashes. If your sash windows are structurally good, we can install double glazed units into the original sashes. It’s important to understand that this service is not appropriate for all sashes windows. The minimum thickness that can take a standard double glazed unit is 37mm. In some cases, or listed building situations, we can install into sashes with less depth, however the time taken increases and the process is no longer a high quality budget service.
If the original sash windows cannot be worked with, the next step up is to manufacture and install new sashes into the original frame. This service normally costs from £750 per window and represents excellent value for money when compared to entire sash window replacement. We will install high quality Pilkington Low-E units with a known lifespan of at least fifteen years. The units are so well made, and so technologically advanced that they have completely changed the way in which we can instal double glazing to sash windows.
