timber sliding sash window repair

Is there a way to repair the mechanism of an old sash window?

New timber sash windows are a beautiful thing. They have all the period charm of originals without the inefficiencies of old glass and frame technologies.

However, Ventrolla often have customers that, understandably, are reticent to replace their old sash windows. It may be that the old timber sash windows are original to the house, or they are just too beautiful to rip out. At Ventrolla we understand very well how attached people get to their traditional sash windows. That’s why we also offer a sash window repair service.
