Maintenance and Repairs
Decay in a box sash window almost always starts at the bottom and works upwards, so the lower window parts will need replacement and repair long before the upper parts. Regularly checking Sash windows for signs of decay, will spot wet rot before it attacks the whole window.
Where wood is in need of repair we use a epoxy resin wood repair system, completely bonding with the original timber restoring the original tenon joints to full strength.
Wood decay occurs where water is allowed to stand on sills, where paintwork has cracked. In Joints between the sill and the masonry and below damp adjoining masonry caused by persistent condensation on the glass, especially in bathrooms.
Normally we can repair the sill by removing all the rotten timber and using our two-part epoxy resin wood repair system.
If the sill is in such a poor condition that we feel it would not produce a good end result. We would replace the rotten sill with a new hardwood sill. The small section of box lining and outer lining we would need to cut out would be replaced with new sections of box lining and outer lining. The new sill and lower box are then sanded, sealed and primed.
As part of the service we can re-glaze any cracked, broken or damaged glass using toughened glass, laminated glass, acoustic noise reducing glass, and drawn sheet glass to match the original glazing. All sashes are re-weighted.
