Sash cord repair may be needed after many years of use, replacing sash cords does not need to be expensive.

Windows that have the old sash cords may look shabby, show signs of decay or they may be covered in paint.

Sash Ropes

Painted ropes become brittle and, like decayed cords will eventually snap.

Sash services supply ropes that are made from waxed cotton and contain a polypropylene core, the wax protects the cotton, allowing for self-lubrication on the pulley wheel, while the nylon core provides inner strength.

The waxed cotton rope is more suited to typical domestic properties with sash windows and will last for generations.

Our company can offer other types of rope, for example, pure white double braided Nylon or Red Fleck waxed cotton, this is the type often seen in historic properties.

It Is important to keep sash cords free of paint.
When decorating (ask your decorator to apply Vaseline to the ropes prior to painting to ensure that the ropes continue to look smart and function properly).

Having your sash windows renovated, draught proofed and kept in the very best condition not only provides added insulation in the winter but also has other advantages in the summertime too!

If your windows appear to have good sash cords attached but do not stay open, your windows may need re-balancing, please visit our sash window renovation page for more information.
