Period Window Restoration

 Windows That Last

Original seasoned timber is in our opinion worth conserving at all costs. Often hundreds of years old, the wood is not only of a very high quality but has also moved and aged with the fabric of the building to become part of your properties original charm and heritage. It has stood the test of time.

We take great pride in the quality of the restoration work that we do and know from experience that there is only one way of doing things and that is the right way. No short cuts.

Why Restore?

The main problem that we come across is water damage and rot, which when found has usually damaged the sill and bottom rail of the lower sash causing structural and functional problems with the window. If correctly restored and painted regularly your windows should last a lifetime.

Only in extreme cases is a window beyond repair. Should this be the case, we offer an extensive range of replacement bespoke joinery.
