“If you’re not passionate about restorations this might sound a bit odd, but it’s important to become friends with each property – to know about its history; its story; what it needs – then you get a real sense of how to help.”James
Sash windows repair Suffolk: advanced materials which we embrace include the revolutionary Accoya® timber – providing minimal shrinkage, swelling or jamming, and increased protection against insects and fungi; Fineo double-glazing – an ultra-slim (6.7mm) vacuum-sealed glazing innovation which boasts incredible thermal, acoustic, security and economic benefits. In most cases, Fineo glazing can be installed in properties which are Grade II listed, sited in conservation zones or have other development regulations (we are experts here so do contact us in this regard).
In addition, our pioneering paint spray method uses advanced paints and equipment to provide incredibly smooth finishes which are thicker, visually stunning and more durable than that which is achievable by the exclusive use of brush and roller.
“I’m very traditional in my ethos and my methods, but I am absolutely convinced that if our forefathers who were doing this work first time around had access to some of the equipment and materials that we do now, they’d be using it!”James
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.
