With so many sash window draught proofing companies in London, it might be easy to jump to the conclusion that all these are the same.
Here at Sash Services we have perfected our draught proofing system by updating and tweaking it over our many years of trading.
Whilst we agree that there are other good sash window companies out there, we also know for sure that there are also many sash window services that are using a very old-fashioned route system, that we feel is ineffective and can also damage your period windows.
To correctly draught proof a sash window the only way it should be done is for all the parting and staff beads to be replaced with new timber reproduction beadings.
These new beads have an integrated draught stripping system inside a track, mounted to the surface that touches the running surface of each window.
Combined with a full service of you box sash windows to ensure that they function correctly and do not rattle, you will ultimately be left with fully functional windows that will be insulated from both outside noise and cold air.
If you are considering sash window replacement based on the fact your windows are cold and draughty then we urge you to call us first.
With new wooden windows costing in excess of £1500 each you could actually end up making a very large saving indeed.
Why not take a look at a video supplied by English Heritage that presents what we feel is a fantastic argument for NOT replacing one’s windows! In many cases, it really is not necessary at all.
