The Scott James team of specialists can apply their expertise to any aspect of wooden sash window refurbishment and replacement.

Some common issues we can resolve include:

  • Decayed window sills
  • Rotten or compromised timber 
  • Damaged glass
  • Stuck or out-of-balance sash windows
  • Broken or tired sash cords, springs, chains and pulleys
  • Draughts and poor fit, leading to thermal inefficiency
  • Tired aesthetics or uneven paintwork
  • Perished seals and putty
  • and more….

Restoring rather than replacing wooden windows is often a cost-effective and sustainable way to retain your property’s architectural personality. 

From Viky taking calls and giving advice, to Ian out on the tools, we all take pride in our work… That’s what makes the quality of our jobs stand out – we love what we do, the whole team does.


Wooden window restoration Chelmsford

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.

Double Glazing

We change loose and tired putty for up-rated resinous replacements, reinforce existing windows, retrofit new double glazing units, made using high-grade glass, supply and fit complete double-glazed wooden 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.


Thorough surface preparation and masking is first completed. A smooth, durable paint finish is then applied, layer-by-layer, by our expert team of sprayers.

With the best materials, dedicated staff, and meticulous attention to detail, we are perfectly primed to discuss, understand and accommodate your needs. Balancing form with function and efficiency with craftsmanship, our experts deliver the comprehensive wooden sash window service.
