Sash window draught proofing

Draught Proofing


Windows can easily become draughty, and sash windows are no exception. This is often seen as an insurmountable problem and a reason for replacing either the sashes or even the whole window, with the loss of many fine original features. This is not necessary. Sash windows can be draught proofed very effectively, with the added benefit of reducing fuel bills, improving sound-proofing and making the windows easier to operate. It is even possible to carry out a reasonable do-it-yourself job, but fitting is much better carried out by a specialist like chiswick handyman

We utilise draft proofing products from the leading UK manufacturers including Mighton, atlas and xxxxx in which draught-sealed staff and parting beads are fitted and seals are installed on the meeting rail, between thbe top and bottom sashes, making an invisible and extremely effective draught seal.

 

At the same time we will overhaul and repair the windows, including;

  • Strip and sand windows
  • Treat or replace decaying timber
  • Replace broken pulleys if required
  • Relieve jammed sashes
  • Replace broken window panes
  • Install new window furniture if required in either brass, chrome or brushed chrome
  • Fix or repair window mouldings
  • Install new weather strip beading and draft proofing
  • Undercoat with Acrylic Pure brilliant white paint
