Are you aware of the different types of sash windows?
The term ‘sash window’ is a general one. This is where many homeowners (and non-qualified window repair companies) misunderstand the need for the highest expertise when it comes to sash window restoration in London and across the South-East.
Here’s a brief overview to help you understand the type of sash window installed in your property, and where sash window repairs in London properties most often need attention.
- Box sash windows: The majority of traditional box sash windows work through a combination of cords and weights. Due to wear and tear down the years it is often the cords that are the main focus for our sash window repairs in London homes.
- Spiral sash windows: This type of window has two tubes containing spiral rods. The rods need turning in order to tension the balance on each sash frame which run vertically up to the top of the window. The restoration of spiral sash windows often means attention is required to the spiral rods.
- Bay sash windows: Without a doubt, bay windows add beauty and style to a period property. However, as they consist of 3 sash windows that sit at a 35-45 degree angle the potential for repair and sash window refurbishment in London homes is potentially trebled!
The professional and highly experienced W.M.S. sash window team will take the whole condition into account to ensure all bay sash window work required is completed.
- Single hung/Double hung sash windows: Our sash window repairs in London homes regularly find us working on single and double hung sash windows.
With double hung sash windows, both sashes operate by sliding vertically whereas with single hung windows only the bottom sash slides upward. The most common problems we find with this type of sash window refurbishment in London and the South-East are broken sash cords.
- Frames: It would be remiss of us not to mention original sash window frames. Our work on sash window restoration in London and the South-East often involves frame restoration of various measures. When considering the age of some of these frame installations it is only natural that they need refurbishing or replacing.
W.M.S. are experts in this type of work and guarantee to complete all restoration or refurbishing work to such a standard that these frames will look exactly as they should.
