Draught Proof and Service
A great first step...
Draught proofing and servicing an existing box sash window is a great first step in improving both the functionality, security and of course, energy efficiency. The draught proofing system we produce is very much integral to the staff and parting beads that hold the window in situ. We machine a plastic track (not visible) and a nylon brush into the traditionally moulded beading which makes contact with each flat face of the sash. This returns between 95-98% draught proofing and instantly improves comfort levels. We will also draught proof across the centre rail (where the sashes meet) and across the head of the top sash for maximum efficiency.
As well as the draught proofing we also check the weights, replace the cords, oil the pulley systems and ensure the sashes run to their optimum. New window furniture is supplied and installed as well as security locks that are insurance rated, offering secure venting.
Double Glazed Sashes
Recycle your existing box frames, no need for complete replacement!
The double-glazed sashes only service is by far our most popular because it offers a fantastic jump on the energy efficiency scale WITHOUT the costs associated to complete new windows. Following a survey visit to assess your box frames we can determine whether they are structurally sound enough to introduce the new sashes. Don’t worry, in most cases the box frames, despite their age are in fact in good condition with any issues usually relating to painting and decorating (rather than replacement).
