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.
At Sash Window Refurbish, your safety and security within your home are of paramount importance to us. 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.
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.
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
