Hampshire based sash window renovation specialists
Timeless Sashes offer a full painting service for your wooden sash windows to protect them from damp and warp and to achieve a professional finish.
Sash window or casement paintwork can often end up cracking and flaking over time.
To ensure your windows remain protected against the elements and stay looking great they should be re-painted at least every 5 years.
Our painting process involves both sash windows and frames being fully prepped, with any bare wood treated with an oil-based primer before having an undercoat and oil-based top coat applied inside and out.
If you need advice on paint colours we offer paint cards to help you decide.
You may need to re-glaze your sash windows for a number of reasons, most commonly if you have a broken pane of glass.
Another reason may be to replace glass that is outdated or does not match the style or period of your property or the purpose of a room i.e. frosted glass in a bathroom.
You may also wish to upgrade your glass for security reasons by switching to toughened glass.
The types of glass available to achieve these improvements to your sash windows are:
-Crown restoration glass to retain the historic character of your property
-3 or 4mm float glass that provides a smooth flat surface and good vision
-Toughened or laminated glass to increase strength
-Obscure/textured glass to retain the privacy of a room
Any replacement glass is fitted seamlessly to the inside of the existing sash window frame.
Frosted film can also be applied to a sash window to provide complete privacy whilst still allowing 80% of light into a room.
Safety film can also be applied to any sash window that is for example in the path of a child or at street-level. In the event of a broken pane the film holds dangerous shards of glass in place to prevent injury. This is practically invisible once applied and will not peel or discolour over time.
