Our repair and enhancement methods improve durability and functionality, greatly extend window lifespans, provide exceptional thermal comfort and beautiful aesthetics. Comprehensively restored wooden windows extend your uprated living conditions (and initial investment) into the coming decades.
“Windows are an integral feature of any building. I’ve enjoyed working on some fantastic projects in my time, and seeing how window restorations transform a property is why I still love my work.”
Our team builds on the original quality of heritage buildings. Working with both traditional and modern methods, and with the best materials, ensures every quality in every detail. Durability is enhanced and the need for future maintenance is reduced to a minimum.
We use revolutionary materials where appropriate and work meticulously within any specific building criteria (e.g. Grade II listed). As our priority is preserving and enhancing authenticity, alongside our expert knowledge in heritage works, many of our customers are often surprised by how much we can accomplish and upgrade in their listed/ regulated property.
Accoya® timber, for example, is used for all replacements of damaged woodwork. Thanks to its production process, it is incredibly durable and stable, resulting in minimal swelling or need for significant future maintenance.
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.
We have spent years refining our paint method to deliver transformative results and overcome the shortfalls and limitations of using traditional brush and roller methods exclusively.
Modern paints and application equipment provide incredible finishes. The Scott James finishes are highly resistant to the elements and bring new life to your property.
Here is a reminder of some of the benefits we offer our customers:
- Restore beauty and preserve heritage/architectural character
- Instate quality via respectful, efficient and meticulous craftsmanship
- Greatly extend the life of existing wooden windows
- Increase daily comfort through thermal and acoustic improvements – e.g. double-glazing and draught-proofing
