Process of Restoration

  • Paintwork is stripped back as necessary.
  • Damage is assessed and rotting and damaged wood is removed.
  • Replacement timber components are made to match existing.
  • After dry sanding, new timber is fitted using splicing or epoxy resin.
  • All new timber and exposed existing timber is treated with wood preservative.
  • Areas of repair are finally primed and putty pointing repairs are made.

Example 1

This bay window style has extensive rot to the cill area, which extends up into the bottom rails of the sashes. The problem is compounded by the fact that the sashes involved are fixed and contain original leaded glass.

Typical areas of decay:

Casement windows are more challenging to repair because of their style of construction; they are typically square or rectangular shaped with a mortice and tenon joint.

We use our knowledge of the construction methods used in casement windows and use modern materials and skills to achieve the desired results.

Example 2

This window also has extensive damage to the cills and bottom rails of the sashes.  The main difference here is that the glazing has no aesthetic or historic value and so the client was advised it would be more economical to replace the sashes completely.
