Old wooden windows CAN be repaired.

As we continue our quest to encourage people to keep their old wooden windows and have them repaired, our Melbourne team have a great example of work done this week.

Pictured below left is the ‘horn’, which you’ll find at the bottom of the top sash, that had to be removed from one window. It was in such bad condition that many people would have thought the window past repair. However the Sealasash team made a replacement horn which  was fitted into the existing timber window frame.

This is just one example of repairs we make to old wooden windows and shows that there’s no job too hard for our talented team. So repairs can be done and we need to spread the word to stop people pulling out and replacing old wooden windows.

Keep in mind these wise words from English Heritage:

“By combining repair with draught proofed secondary glazing, total heat loss could be reduced to one-quarter of that of the window in its original state; and by even more at night with shutters, curtains or blinds in place. Thus it is certainly not essential to replace existing windows to obtain levels of improvement in thermal performance that make traditional timber sash windows comparable with standard modern windows.”
