Sash Windows

Sash Windows are a significant part of our heritage.

These windows date back to the Georgian era and were used prominently in the Victorian & Edwardian eras. However, because of their age, they do wear down over time. They’ll need repairs and maintenance to ensure they’re functioning properly.

Luckily, most windows are able to be repaired and restored.

Some people may be tempted to replace their sash windows with easier maintained plastic windows, but there’s no need when you can get it repaired back to working order.

AMANTODO can repair the common issues you may be having with your sash windows, conserving the beauty of your aging windows and ensuring they last many years to come. So, if you’re having problems with your sash windows, give us a call today.

Common Problems

Sash windows with broken components can cause noise problems, leaks, rattles and draughts. This can all make for an uncomfortable living experience.

However, we are able to eliminate these problems and make sure your window is functioning properly once again.

Here’s some of the problems that could be plaguing your windows:

  • Rotting timber – Timber found on window sills can absorb rainwater, leading to rotting problems. We’ll remove the decaying timber and splice in new timber, with any gaps being filled with wood filler, resins and glues to ensure a durable repair.

  • Broken sash cords – Sash cords can become worn through general use or snapped when exposed to strong UV light. This weakens the natural fibres in older sash cords. We’ll attempt to fix these, but if they’re beyond repair, then we can replace them.

  • Under-weighted sashes – We will attempt to record and rebalance your windows, but if this isn’t possible we can replace the spring balances in sash windows. We are able to replace all different types of spring balances.

  • Painted shut – When painting the windows, the paint can cause parts to become stuck together. We are able to unstick the windows, to ensure you’re able to open them freely again.

  • Broken catches or sash pulleys – These can also become broken over time, so may need replacing.
