Get your sash windows fixed for Christmas

Ho Ho Ho. Yes it’s that time of year again where we’ll be joining the family, eating and drinking to our hearts content whilst singing along to cheesy Christmas songs.

As the big day approaches you want to ensure that you can enjoy the festive season in the warmth and comfort of your own home, especially as we tend to be in our homes for lengthy amounts of time.

The last thing you want is Granny settling down to watch the Queen’s speech with the sound of rattling sash windows interrupting.

Or draughts that blow through the living room as you’re settling down in front of the TV for a Christmas film.

The culprits of these uncomfortable conditions are, more often than not, your timber sash windows and doors.

Here are three quick fix tips Ventrolla has pulled together to help you combat these problems in the short term;

  • Keep blinds and curtains closed on extremely cold days. Plus your Christmas tree lights will glow all the more in a darker, cosy room!
  • Cover up your key holes and letterboxes with cardboard. Keep it festive and add a Christmas wrapping lining!
  • Use draught excluders on every door. If you don’t have time to go out and buy one, why not stuff a pair of tights with used wrapping paper!
But remember, these are only temporary measures. For a sustainable solution in 2019, Ventrolla advises that you get a renovation expert to take a look at your sash windows and doors. They will then be able to assess the level of repair required and advise you on the work needed to renovate and draught-proof against the cold.
