Here at Scott James, we understand the importance of historic windows and we translate that passion into our work. The transformation of windows seen with our services truly lifts a property and having them back to their intended original condition.
For our work, we only use the highest-quality materials. Combined with advanced epoxy resins, sealants and fillers, we replace complete sections of degraded timber using Accoya® timber and Tricoya® panelling and veneers. Working with the Accoya®/Tricoya® material range means that traditional styling and quality can be preserved. Enhanced durability and longevity are built in.
In most cases, our team of experts can repair and restore existing windows. By identifying the root causes of rot, decay and damage, we can take remedial action, resulting in 100% strong, fit-for-purpose, beautiful wooden sash windows – transforming your windows and property.
As well as sash window repair work, we also offer re-glazing services where we retrofit new glass into existing frames. Using ultra-thin and thermally efficient Fineo glass this service may be suitable to those with particularly damaged or thermally inefficient windows.
By carefully overhauling your sash windows and renewing, upgrading or adding high-quality draught-proofing, we can make large improvements to your window operation and thermal efficiency. Draught-proofing will reduce external noise, resolve rattles and prove a highly cost-effective way to enhance your home space.
Our bespoke decoration service is generally the last stage to all of our window restoration jobs, but also available to those who simply want to refresh their window’s paintwork without repairs.
The spray system employed during the decorating stage is also very tolerant of cold conditions due to fast drying times and the specialist paints used.
