WINDOW RESTORATION
Preserve the character of your home
Most existing units can be restored to their former glory even if parts of the timber frames seem to be rotting. This is often a significantly lower cost than replacing windows.
Restoring Period Windows
Traditional windows and sympathetic original period craftsmanship is hard to duplicate. This is because the first growth lumber that was commonly used in period buildings is much more stable, thicker and a lot more resistant to rot than any currently available today.

Historic or period windows will outlast any form of modern replacement windows which usually only last up to 15 - 20 years. Old windows have had to endure constant exposure to the elements therefore they may have marks or show signs of neglect.

Old wooden windows were built to last for generations and were made to be repaired and not replaced. Craftsmen built windows that could be easily fixed when they eventually need attention.

Historic windows were made using imperial dimensions therefore standard metric modern designs are unlikely to correctly match up.

With this in mind it is always advisable to have a specialist conduct a full survey to decide whether it would be possible and worth the repair of your period windows.

In many cases, rot can be cut out and replaced with matching timber and other problems such as loose joints and broken sash cords can often be fairly easy to resolve.

An experienced joiner who is skilled in traditional techniques will be able put most windows into full working order to preserve them for years to come.
