Welcome to sash window repairs London, as you are no doubt aware we are one of London's most well known wooden window restoration specialists and wooden window services.
The thing that distinguishes us from other businesses is that it is our policy to take conservation and historic architecture first above all.
If your timber framed windows and doors are in a condition that is deemed "too far gone" for restoration then the obvious next step would be replacement.
We have been manufacturing reproduction wooden windows since 1985 and have always used traditional manufacturing processes to ensure that your new windows do not look out of place in your period property.
Most good quality modern double glazed wood windows are made entirely with UK building regulations in mind, which in principal is very good. The problem is that with some of these windows although they may comply with regulations, once fitted they may not suite the period features and architecture of the house in the same way as the original windows did.
The reason for this is that typical double glazed units will be on average 20mm thick as opposed to the 3mm thick glass of your 100+ year old original sash windows.
Off the shelf factory finished double glazed timber windows will be far deeper, protruding into your home and can result in you having to re-plaster interior walls to hide the increased depth with the unavoidable result of a reduction in space within the room!
One of the benefits of using us to supply replacement windows is that our windows not only comply with ALL current building regulations but they also utilise a modern type of double glazed unit sometimes referred to as Slimline glass.
The result is that you will have A rated wooden windows that actually look like the ones that they replaced in every possible way. We even take templates of the windows you want replaced to ensure that your new windows will be exact replicas, made entirely of hardwood and still double glazed.
