At Mortice & Green, we have extensive expertise in providing bespoke renovation and refurbishment services for sash windows. We offer a range of services, we can fix up and repair an old sash window, install, or replicate a new one, and fit double glazing to improve the energy efficiency, soundproofing and carbon footprint of your windows.
Our sash window renovation service includes draught proofing or insulation.The reason draught proofing is part of our renovation service for timber windows, is because all your sash cords and parting beads will all need to be removed and replaced as part of the renovation work and this is the ideal time to install the draught proofing system. Once the window is fully renovated and refurbished the window can be painted further enhancing the aesthetics of your original period sash windows. Once your windows are renovated all the windows will slide up and stay up and when closed they should be draught free and secure.
Our refurbishment service for wooden windows is a comprehensive mechanical service carried out to address all operational problems and also as part of the refurbishment work we also draught proof the sash windows to ensure over 97% of draughts are eliminated.
