Using only traditional methods of restoring the windows, good old fashioned joinery and up to date technology in our own dedicated workshop facilities at the museum, Stanmer park, Brighton and mobile workshop.
Our 48hr Promise to restore your sash windows
No nasty 8 week waiting time for joiners to make new windows or replacement parts. Its possible to take the window away and have the window back within 48hrs fully restored and painted. Some mouldings have to be done by hand (also known as whittling the timber). Occasionally we need to order in specialist router mouldings. We always take these sorts of things into consideration when we start a job. The team consider all the minor details including the mouldings and delivery timescales so we can try to keep to our 48hr promise.
When restoring your windows, we always strip the paint off the windows and the moving parts of the sashes including the box frames. This is because, its probably the only chance that your windows have had to have all the paint stripped off completely and have a 100% overhaul. Years of paint build-up sometimes over a century or more the windows won’t work how they were meant to when first installed. They will have restricted movement if any.
If the windows aren’t prepared in this manner it means the paint will blister and give a second rate finish. Some decorators have little experience when it comes to painting sash windows especially when the windows have been draught proofed. Therefore this is why we recommend this service and prepare everything. Should you choose to have the full service, then the window refurbishment can usually be done without scaffolding. Thus reducing the cost of the project by around £500 it could help towards paying for the painting on the outside of the windows.
