Repairing Heritage Windows and doors
Unlike plastic or aluminium a wide range of repairs are possible with traditional wooden windows. Many that might initially appear to be beyond repair can be restored to good working order.
Rot is a common, reoccurring problem in old, neglected sash windows. Failure of the paintwork or putty allows water to enter the timber. Therefore, creating ideal conditions for fungal or insect attacks. The most common area of rot development is the sill; fortunately, Heritage Sash Window’s are experts at replacing rotten sash window sills.
We utilise a range of products during our repair projects, from the traditional methods of splicing new timber sections to the advanced solutions of epoxy resins & glues. All materials are selected to ensure a durable, permanent repair for many years to come to restore your windows and doors back to former glory.
When used properly, epoxy resins provide an advanced solution to repair rot and decay in old windows. Used alone or combined with a timber splice they provide a long lasting permanent fix.
All of our resins are marine grade for extended durability.
