This customer in Harpenden contacted us regarding refurbishing his 21 sliding sash windows as they had been fitted with secondary glazing which meant they could not open the windows and they thought that the secondary glazing was old and did not look great.
After a site survey the customer asked us if it would be possible to fit the windows with double glazing and because the sashes were in such good condition this was possible.
The full job was now to remove the secondary glazing, take out the sashes, strip the old paint then remove the single glazing. After this we rebated the old sash for a double glazed unit and re-beaded it with Accoya glass bead. We then painted the sashes and the boxes with three coats of paint before installing new ropes, pulleys and weights to make the sashes slide once again. New staff and parting beads with draught proofing were also fitted to make the windows draught free and finally we fitted traditional antique brass furniture to the windows which completed the look
The customer was delighted with the end result emphasising that we “restored the windows to their former glory”
