Repairs to heritage sash windows

Working on heritage listed properties is a fairly common occurrence for the Hobart Sealasash crew.  This week we’ve managed to get some ‘action shots’ of some skilled repair work done on some very old wooden sash windows. Rot repairs are the most common, particularly when sashes have been painted in or not opened for a long period.

Glazing bars shaped and epoxied to original bars

Our lead carpenters have all had training in the Burra Charter, which defines the basic principles and procedures to be followed in the conservation of Australia’s historic places. This means that we replace as little and retain as much of the original structure as possible.

The shot below shows the result of some of the work done, aside from the draft sealing on the windows. The glazing bars have been repaired and the sash rail shaped and checked for fitting.

Repairs to the sash are done and ready for re-fitting to the frame.
