Sash windows repair Colchester: restoring rather than replacing wooden sash windows is often a cost-effective and sustainable way to retain your property’s architectural personality. 

“We’ve seen a lot of wooden windows where the customer had been told to rip them out and fit new. Most of those windows can be fully restored by us – better and stronger than they’ve ever been – and cheaper than a full re-fit!”


The skilled craftsmen at Scott James combine advanced materials with best restorative practices – providing high-quality wooden windows to accentuate the charm and features of your 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.
