Are your Sash and Case windows operating efficiently?
At Borthwick Decorators we understand the quality of our finished product is our passport to future business and positive testimonials and referrals. When it comes to our Sash and Case windows service it is all about quality workmanship from start to finish.
It starts with our survey of the current state of repair and the operation, identifying the repair required and addressing the project based on a window by window basis.
There are a few questions you should ask yourself about your windows and their operation. These include, when I open the window does it gradually fall back down, are they stiff to open or do you even avoid opening certain windows, do you lock them or can you lock them, do they close properly? Some of these have further considerations relating to the insurance of your property, safety, noise reduction, heating loss and ventilation.
Consider the operation of a window has a direct impact on heat control and efficiency in a house. Houses need to be heated, ventilated and efficient. A sash and case window that rattles in the wind, is stiff to open, has chipped or tired paint, does not close properly or does not stay open is not efficient!
Once our survey is completed, on your agreement, we undertake a repair which may include some or all of the following;
- Draught proofing
- Repairing rotten window sills, window beads etc.
- Replace cords and pulley wheels
- Replace loose or missing putty
- Re-pointing the outside of the sash and case window with sand mastic to seal it.
- Re-glazing, including changing to toughened glass or double glazing
- New sash ironmongery
- Install easy clean system to upper floors
- Removal of excess paint build up, making sashes operational.
- Re-painting the sash and case windows
