Repair and restoration

Timber repair.

Decayed and damaged timber is gently prised out from windows, frames and sills, retaining as much of the original wood as possible. Where decay is severe, sections of timber is replaced with new joinery work to closely match the original.

Whole cills or cill fronts can be replaced seamlessly to match the original window profile.

The remaining timber is treated with a multi-stage epoxy resin repair system called Repair Care Smooth. Using specialist tools, the surface of the repair is carefully smoothed to match the shape of the original timber, so that it blends seamlessly.

Finally, the window is stained or painted as required.

Weatherpiles

Draught proofing.

Draftfix system which typically uses a weather pile with a central fin, fixed into a plastic carrier which is rebated into the casement.

The weather pile prevents dust and dirt ingress, and the central fin contributes to air tightness.

All the seals are rebated into the casement, which means no unsightly, protruding, face-fixed seals.

Draught proofing is applied to three places around a sash window; the staff bead, on the bottom rail of the lower sash, also known as the sash stop.

The meeting rail, where the two sashes overlap across the centre of the window and the parting bead, at the top of the upper sash, in the centre of the frame.

Verified to BS 6375-1.
