Box Sash Window Restorations & Repairs

As wooden sash windows get older they often start to seize, where sash cords have deteriorated or where old paint, rotten frames or warping stop the sash from sliding up and down smoothly, which can cause the frame to stick. If you are experiencing some or all of these symptoms with your sash windows, we can help!

If your existing box sash window frames are in relatively good condition, but there are parts that need restoration or replacement,  you do not necessarily need to replace the whole sash window. As specialist carpenters and joiners we are frequently able to save many of our clients the expense of replacing a sash window by restoring or refurbishing their existing window frames.

With years of experience in restoring and refurbishing windows our joiners are quick to spot problems with old sash windows and can usually resolve them by replacing sash cords and restoring the sash frames with replacement timber and fillers to bring them back to their former glory.

Our comprehensive sash window restoration service covers all aspects of window repairs:

  • Replacement box sash window cords
  • Re-balancing of sash window weights
  • Restoration or repairs of timber window frames and sills
