“It’s complete job satisfaction: seeing these timber windows – made by other craftsmen years and years ago – given a new lease of life…”Alex
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.
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.
