Timber/Wood Windows Repair

We focus on the restoration and fixing of wooden windows in the UK East Midlands. Our expertise lies in utilizing top-notch materials and employing traditional techniques. Additionally, we harness the benefits of modern two-pack repair systems, known for their high-quality conservation-grade finishes.

Sash Window Restoration

In the realm of conservation, historic properties often feature authentic Georgian-style sash windows that have stood the test of time, some even reaching a century in age. Their durability owes much to the high-quality timber used in their original construction and the meticulous craftsmanship employed. Replacing these windows, especially with hardwood alternatives, can be a costly endeavour and may lack the charm of the original timber windows.

Opting to restore and repair the original timber sash windows proves to be a prudent and economical choice. This process may involve reglazing, replacing decayed or damaged timber, and restoring glazing bars, sills, and other components, typically using hardwood. After meticulous repairs and restoration efforts, these windows are meticulously stripped, treated, primed, undercoated, and then finished in a traditional colour of your preference.

Windows Rot Repair

Windows deteriorate when moisture seeps into the wood, leading to rot and decay. Typically, this degradation occurs due to deteriorating paint that flakes away, enabling water to infiltrate. Our solution involves meticulous repair, where we remove the decayed wood and replace it with fresh timber, a more budget-friendly alternative to replacing the entire window.

Windows New Cords/Balancing

We also offer cord replacement and balancing services. If your sash cords break or if your windows won’t stay open due to imbalanced weights, causing them to shut unexpectedly, it’s a clear issue. We can resolve these problems by replacing the cords and ensuring proper balancing, allowing your windows to function smoothly and effortlessly.

To guarantee your peace of mind, we implement rigorous measures, such as incorporating integral locking systems and barrel locks, meticulously fitted to secure your windows.

Wood Window Restoration: Cost

Contemporary softwoods are rapidly cultivated and dried in kilns, resulting in a higher moisture content compared to older, traditionally seasoned wood. This elevated moisture level, when painted, can become trapped within the wood, potentially causing premature deterioration. Rot can silently destroy the wood over time, often remaining unnoticed as it eats away at the timber from within. Replacing affected wood can be costly, especially if multiple windows are impacted.

Wood Window Restoration Cost

The “Repair Care System” offers a solution to these challenges by delivering a high-quality, robust, and enduring repair, bypassing the problems associated with moisture-laden softwoods.

Aged Properties

In historic properties with possibly the original or early replacement windows, the timber quality is typically outstanding. However, after approximately a century, a certain degree of softening or decay can be expected, although it is usually localized. This repair system excels in addressing such issues, especially because replacing these windows often results in a lower-quality alternative unless hardwood is specifically chosen, which comes at a significantly higher cost, approximately three times the price.

Preserves its Authentic Charm

The original character of the property is often compromised during replacements, and securing planning consent for such changes can be challenging, especially if the property is located within a conservation area. This restoration system not only excels in repairing casements and frames but can also reconstruct glazing bars and fix areas where the timber has deteriorated. Additionally, the Dry Seal glazing sealant dries quickly, allowing for painting the next day, eliminating the slow curing time associated with traditional putty and enabling a faster turnaround.

Our customers have expressed immense satisfaction with the outcomes and the cost savings they have achieved. So, why wait? Areas covered

My technician Andrew replaced all my sash windows that had rotten sills. Accessing the rotten sills was not an easy task. He explained to me what needed to be done in order to fix the problem. He is a great person and I’m happy that he was the one who did the job. He is reliable, tidy, friendly and very professional. I highly recommend him.



I hired Andrew and Alex a while back to repair my damaged sash windows. They were was very considerate and very patient as he did his job. A few days ago, I had another problem with one of my sash lock keys and I called him again to come and fix the problem. I’m very impressed that Liam responded quickly and he not only fixed the problem but he also gave me a spare key. What a great after sales service!

I’m very impressed with the new windows that Andrew installed and also the reconditioning job that he did on other sash windows. The quality of his work is by far more superior than what we got when we hired another company a few years back. We will certainly hire him again if any window work arises

Our decorator referred us to Andrew because some of the work needed a window expert. Andrew together with our decorator did a fantastic job. The work was done efficiently and to the highest standards. Andrew is understanding, committed and very professional. I recommend him without any hesitation.

Alex did a great job in fixing windows in our terraced house. The windows were broken, frames damaged and the wood was also rotten. Alex's job was high quality and he did it pretty fast. I was also very impressed that he was considerate of my son’s asthma condition and maintained cleanliness. Top work.



Andrew just recently replaced three sash windows in my Edwardian house. He also repaired and replaced some sills and draught proofed three windows. In addition to that, he also did some carpentry work. What I like the most about Liam is that he did a clean job. He is very professional and always updated me about the timescales and costs. He also did his job with minimal disruptions. I highly recommend him.
