Insulated Glazing for your Home
Sash Heritage Restoration are specialists in the restoration of listed and period properties that may require very specific maintenance and repairs. Properties that have existing sash windows with multiple panes may begin to suffer from condensation and from this, ineffective insulation. Ineffective insulation can mean that the look and efficiency of the frames and woodwork are in turn affected. Listed properties require painting and maintained regularly; Sash Heritage Restoration’s team of sash window specialists can help you ensure that your windows are in the best condition they can possibly be.
Our team at Sash Heritage Restoration use their combined expertise to improve your existing sash and box frame windows with repairs and draught proofing. In cases where your windows do not yet have double glazing, we can replace your frames and install new Slimlite double glazing at the same time. While we always try to retain original frames, when these are very old they may need fully replacing to give enough frame depth. When Slimlite double glazing is installed, new metal or steel weights can ensure that the sash windows are recalibrated. This adjustment in weights will help to rebalance the new glass and heavier frame.
Our Sussex-based team, Sash Heritage Restoration, can help you with any problems you may be having with your existing sash and box window frames. If you think that your double glazing or even the secondary pane may not have been installed properly, a member of our team can arrange to visit your home and assess this for you. Our expert joiners can check that the sliding sash is working correctly, and that any glazing is sealed in to the tracks with mastic. We can also help you if you are experiencing excessive condensation. While we specialise in timber frames, we are also able to guide you when converting your windows from more contemporary sash window designs, made from other high-quality materials such as Aluminium. While these materials aren’t generally approved in listed buildings, new, contemporary architecture now utilises traditional sash window design coupled with robust compound metal materials.

For those that live on the Brighton and Sussex coast itself, it can be even more important to ensure that your period home and sash windows have adequate draught-proofing. With strong winds and heavy rain being even more common on the coast, these properties are more exposed to the elements throughout the year. Many listed homes can have secondary glazing installed as an alternative to a complete replacement of your frames with Slimlite double glazing. Either option can make very big difference to protecting your home from the elements. Contact us at Sash Heritage Restorations today to arrange a detailed assessment of your property by our team of sash and box frame window experts.
