Draught Proofing Timber Sash Windows
One of the most popular services we provide at Sash Restoration Melbourne, is the draught proofing service and renovation of your original timber sash and casement windows, to bring them up to modern standards of draught proofing and insulation. The sash windows are removed and the whole window is overhauled, the windows are then thoroughly inspected for rot and any rotten timbers are carefully cut out and replaced.
A typical sash window refurbishment will involve:
replacing any broken glass
replacing any rotten sections
re-balancing and re-weighting the windows
fully draught proofing installed into the sash windows
restoring the original box frame
replacing the external pointing
replacing all the ironmongery where needed
fit new heavy duty pulley wheels
All draught proofing is discreetly inserted into the sash windows and does not alter the appearance of the windows in any way. This service is particularly suited to clients who live in conservation areas, listed buildings, as planning restrictions will mean that upgrading to double glazing is often not an option.
If your sash windows are in extremely good order, installing a draught proofing system is the only option. This involves the installation of draught proofing into the parting beads and baton rods and running a seal for the mid rail and base of the window. This is a more economical way of improving the thermal efficiency of your windows, however it is not nearly as comprehensive as a full sash restoration. Our draught proofing service complies with all new conservation regulations and planning guidelines
The vast majority of sash and casement windows in Melbourne are repairable, but should your existing sash windows be beyond repair, we can manufacture individual sashes to match the original design, as well as offering a complete sash window restoration service.
