Sash windows are one of the most recognised and unique features of period buildings. Where salvageable, original sash windows should be renovated rather than replaced. It is a common misconception that rotten or damaged sections of sash windows require a full replacement, when often a simple renovation is all that is required.

Over time sash windows become weathered and loose in their frames due to wood shrinkage or building movement, which can cause rattling. Often people fix or paint their windows shut as a solution. However, this goes against the original function of a sash window, which is to maximise the airflow into a property by having an equal gap at the top and bottom when open. By separating the in-and-out flow of air, the cooler incoming air through the lower opening efficiently flushes warm air out of the top opening. To retain or restore this function Timeless Sashes offer two renovation options.

Option One - Basic Sash Window Renovation

A basic renovation requires your sash windows to be taken out of their frame with any build-up of paint on the sashes and/or frame removed. The sashes are then re-shaped to fit the frame and re-balanced with new sash cord fitted to enable their smooth operation. If extensive rot is found, sections of the sash window’s sill, mullions or mouldings will be replaced. We always match the historic profile of the existing timber. All repairs are treated with preservative and coated with an oil-based primer to protect against all weather conditions. Any loose external mortar will be removed and re-pointed. Where required, old beading is replaced with weather-proofed beading and the sash window’s mid-rail will also be weather stripped. To ensure a professional finish you can also opt to have your sash windows painted.

Option Two - Comprehensive Sash Window Renovation

A comprehensive renovation includes the above plus the replacement of all sash window furniture in the style and finish chosen by you from our collection, which includes brass or polished/satin chrome.

Full Replacement - In extreme cases of disrepair a sash window may be beyond renovation. Timeless Sashes offer a full sash window replacement service, measured and manufactured with matching profiles and mouldings.
