Casement Window Restoration - How Does It Work?

Casement Window Restoration - How Does It Work?

Casement windows are beautiful and practical. In design, they even pre-date sash windows, having first appeared in the UK in the 18th century. The problem with casement windows (especially in a period home) is often they can be old, and if not properly looked after, they may be draughty or the wood may have started to rot. Original casement windows will also not have the benefits of modern glass technology for thermal and noise insulation. If you have casement windows in need of some TLC, then Ventrolla can help! Ventrolla are the experts in sash and casement window restoration. But what does a casement window restoration involve?

Survey and Measurements

First, one of the team will visit your property to see the windows and guide you through the process in more detail. At this point you would receive a quote for the work, and a technical surveyor would visit the property to take exact measurements for the work to be done.

Repairing and replacing the wooden frame

When wooden casement window frames begin to rot or become misshapen, our experts use traditional carpentry skills to replace sections with new wood to millimetre perfection.
