Sash window restoration: Solving summer window woes

Sash and casement windows are a beautiful part of any heritage home. But as the seasons change, you may notice issues which you’ve never really spotted before. Summer isn’t immune to this – and as the weather warms up and you crave fresh air in your home, you may find that your sashes aren’t up to the job – which is where our sash window restoration services could be of help.

Why restore rather than replace?

We always recommend repairing timber windows over replacing them, wherever possible. Our restoration provides a wide range of benefits, including:

  • Usually, the most cost-effective option
  • Notably reduces energy bills & exterior noise
  • Ensures no loss of character
  • The best choice for listed buildings, properties in conservation areas & AONBs
  • Premium shutter options complement original windows further
  • Positive impact upon surrounding architecture
  • Contributes to sustainability in its widest sense


Draught-proofing, as standard

While you might not be bothered by draughts from your sash windows in summer, by autumn and winter, you’ll definitely notice them! That’s why, when we restore timber windows, we add our innovative Ventrolla Perimeter Sealing System (VPSS) as standard. Our draught-proofing system closes the gap around the sashes, eliminating these issues whilst allowing the sashes to still travel smoothly past each other.
