Sussex Sash Window Specialist

Our Sussex-based team of master carpenters and joiners use the highest quality materials in their sash window restoration work. These materials has been refined and perfected, tried and tested, so our team can tailor these processes to each individual property’s requirements.

Sash Window Repair

Many repairs to sash and box frame are made with sub-standard timber that has been kiln-dried. This is incorrectly used by competitors that do not know that this should not be used to carry out sash and box frame window restoration work. Kiln-dried timber has not yet balanced with its surroundings, meaning it will dry at a different rate on the outside to the inside. This causes hardening and shakes as the window frames age.

Sash Heritage Restoration only uses 100-year old, air-dried timber, seasoned especially for sash and box frame window repairs. This is crucial part of our work, as it is already balanced with the environment and as such, it can be used with perfect results when rotten wood frames and window sills need to be replaced. Using this beautiful, air-dried hardwood prevents premature rotting and helps any paintwork used to last longer. Used in conjunction with a world-class wood-filling treatment, the DryFlex Woodcare System, a truly superior standard of repairs can be undertaken. Our experienced team can create sash window repairs that will look stunning and stand up to the elements and the natural aging process for many years.
