The Specialist In Sash Windows
John's Repair, Refurbishment & Draught Proofing London
I specialise in bringing them back to life
Please see below more details about my sash window repairs, restoration and draught proofing in London.

Sash Window Restoration, Refurbishment & Renovation: We check for the following: Wood rot, sash joints, smooth running, rattles,
pulleys, sash cords, glass, weight balancing and putty repairs.

Broken Sash Cords can often be done the next day: After removing the sashes from the frame and your sash window cord is repaired, I
make good the small amount of damage that occurs and I also make sure that the window runs smoothly.

Rot Sash Window: I patch in new wood to sills and frames and also replace sills and frame sections. Rot detection equipment used to ensure
complete removal.

Windows Stuck Or Rattly: When stuck, I will carefully remove your sash windows from the frame and plane all the swollen wood and paint
off then wax the glides restoring them to a smooth operation. Rattles will be cured by tightening up the frame etc. This is part of our sash window
refurbishment and restoration process.

Glass And Putty Repairs: Replace broken glass and repair old putty is also part of our sash window refurbishment and restoration process.

How I Draught Proof /Insulate Your Sash Windows and Casement windows and stop the Rattles. We found that replacing staff beads and
parting beads that have integral brushes work fine with newer windows but didn't totally address the unevenness of older sash windows. Our tried
and tested solution, now become standard over many years, is to machine cut grooves ourselves at various depths into the moving sashes to allow
for the uneven gaps, then fit the brushes into the tailored grooves. The result is a consistent brush seal all around your windows. Your windows
character is preserved, as the brushes are hidden and the integrity of the window remains intact.

This Restoration Procedure  retains the original look and character of your sash windows.
Windows will run more smoothly, as we apply the insulation brushes to front and back of the sashes.
Reduces outside noise levels and stops any rattles.
Saves on heating bills.
Reduces dust and draughts on sash windows by over 90%.
Our Full Painting Service: inside £180 & outside £180 Total £360
And we don't need costly scaffolding as we remove the sashes from the inside.
I don't require any deposit or payment until you are completely satisfied with your windows.
Special offer: Full High Quality sash window draught proofing for £180
per window when over 3 windows.
Please account for repairs on older windows in addition to the draught proofing.     
We hand cut the brush slots at different depths to ensure a snug fit with older uneven
windows. Brushes are also hidden so your windows will retain their original look.
