Why Do You Need a Sash Window Specialist?

Sash windows are an easy way to add some much-needed character to a property. Combining aesthetic appeal with practicality, they not only give your home a traditional feel, but they are also the best option for protecting it from intruders. To maintain the beauty and functionality of sash windows, regular upkeep is required. Sash window maintenance and repair is essential for ensuring the longevity of your windows.

Are your sash windows prone to condensation? Do they keep getting jammed and no longer slide smoothly? Is some of the double glazing cracked? Perhaps you’re experiencing aesthetic issues, such as frayed cords or a cracked and peeling frame. In any of these scenarios, it’s time to find a professional who specialises in sash window repair.

What Does a Sash Window Specialist Do?

Whether you need new cords, a new frame, replacement glass, noise insulation or replacement locks and parts, sash window restoration requires technical know-how. Fitting or repairing sash windows is an art — there’s much more to it than simply sliding a sheet of glass into a frame. Consideration must also be given to window pane construction, noise insulation and energy efficiency. You can expect the following from a sash window repair expert:

  • FENSA certification: Before you decide which specialist to hire for your sash window repair, it’s vital you first make sure that anyone you consider is certified by FENSA (Fenestration Self-Assessment Scheme). FENSA is a government-approved body and is the industry standard for self-certification. Any specialist who installs replacement windows or doors must comply with FENSA’s strict thermal performance standards, with the reduction of energy loss being the driving force behind this requirement.
  • Sash window repair and maintenance: Sash window repair and maintenance needs to be ongoing to maximise the lifespan of your sash windows and maintain its charming character. Sash windows with timber frames are susceptible to rot and decay when continually exposed to the elements. A sash window repair specialist will apply the correct treatment during the process. All the standard sash window fittings such as window panes, cords, pulley wheels, meeting rails, locks, sash weights, window sills and paint work are also common focus areas when it comes to repair work. Regular repair and maintenance ensures the architectural and structural integrity of your sash windows.
  • Sash window installation: During installation, waterproof flashing is fitted and pilot holes are drilled into the frame. Your specialist will ensure the window is well-prepared and level before it is set and screwed into place. If you have older sash windows, you may be wondering whether new double-glazed glass sheets can be fitted into the pre-existing wooden frames. This will depend on a number of factors, and can only be determined by a sash window specialist doing a thorough assessment of your windows.
  • Sash window noise reduction: Apart from keeping the cold out, double-glazed sash windows also provide protection from noise pollution. Whether it’s barking dogs, noisy neighbours or busy traffic, it is the responsibility of your sash window specialist to ensure that you are well-shielded from outside noise. Modern and newer sash windows have built-in protection against noise pollution, but older windows lack efficient insulation. To fix this problem, a professional will ensure that draught excluders are effectively fitted during repair. With a great degree of outside noise blocked, your home will be far more peaceful and comfortable.
  • Sash window energy efficiency: A sash window specialist will ensure that your home is insulated to protect you from excessive energy loss. This will generate greater cost savings by reducing your gas bill. When performing sash window repair, your specialist will make effective use of cold air draught insulation and check that double-glazed windows are properly fitted to ensure your home is warm and comfortable.
