Draught Proofing

Sash window overhaul covers a broad number or tasks from unsticking painted windows to cord replacement, weight balancing, ironmongery and glazing. 

Sash window draught proofing involves considerably more work. Expert knowledge and good materials are both vital.

The process starts with removal of the sashes, weights and beads. The sashes are machined for best fit and draught proofing is fitted into the sashes at the same time. The sashes are then weighed and the weights adjusted before fitting with new cords. New staff and parting beads are fitted that also contain draught proofing. Once rebuilt, the window is checked and fitted with ironmongery if required.

This combination virtually eliminates draughts, stops rattles, reduces noise ingress and increases energy efficiency.
