Why replace when you can repair?

Sometimes, sash windows need to be replaced. But, if it can be avoided, repair is the better option. The price tag is lower, it helps maintain the heritage of your home and it’s better for the environment too.

We combine the best technology with traditional carpentry techniques to deliver the best results. Take a closer look at our sash window repair services:

·     Sash window sill

Sash window sills can rot and decay over time. This is typically caused by water ingress from the windows itself and can lead to further damage if left unresolved. That’s where Fix a Sash come in. We can repair or replace the window sill with a hardwood section – a durable alternative to a full window replacement.

·     Middle rail

Condensation and water damage can be a nightmare for sash windows, damaging the middle rail and making windows hard to move. If this is the case, don’t panic. We can simply repair the rail or replace the sections with a hardwood fixture.

·      Bottom rail

The bottom rail of a sash window can be damaged by rot, decay or just poor maintenance. This can impact the efficiency of your windows, but it doesn’t need a full replacement. We can tackle the problem by replacing the bottom rail with a hardwood section.

·      Sash window frame

The frame of your sash window has to deal with plenty of wear and tear, especially where the frame and the window sill meet. If there any gaps in this section you might find water damage, leading to rot and decay. Fix a Sash will repair your window frame with zero-fuss to cut out water damage and strengthen your windows.

·      Construction joint tearing 

The construction joints on sash windows can separate over time, meaning more water damage and rot. The best course of action is to repair the joints at the first sign of decay. At Fix a Sash, we work quickly and effectively to repair all sash window joints, leaving you with a long-lasting solution.

Improved heat retention

Are your windows cracked or broken? This can let in a cold breeze, which isn’t ideal for cost nights in by the TV.

We install low-e double-glazing, which helps keep heat in and cuts energy bills down to size. The glass has a transparent metallic coating, so light can pass through without affecting heat – which reduces heat loss by a massive 40% more than standard double glazing.

You get all the plus points of modern glazing, without losing the look of your original windows. Perfect.

Noise reduction

Is your home plagued by noise from traffic, kids or just the outside world? Bring a stop to your endless sleepless nights with our glass replacement services.

Our noise reduction glass is made from two sheets with a film placed in the middle. This combination can reduce noise levels by up to XX decibels. Even better, it can be installed into either existing windows or slender double-glazed units.

Improved privacy & security

Safety is the number one priority for homeowners. We’re no different. Our security glass – which is available in thickness from 6.5mm to 25mm – can be installed to give you that extra peace of mind. We offer plenty of extra options:

  • Toughened glass– Four to five times stronger than standard options.
  • Safety glass– If broken, safety glass shatters into tiny, harmless pieces, so there’s no chance of big glass shards causing damage or hurting anybody.

 

  • Laminated glass– Features a laminated film to boost its strength. In the unlikely event that it breaks, it will stay attached to the plastic interlayer, keeping its strength until it’s replaced.
  • Privacy glass– Block out nosy neighbours with various grades of opaque glass in a range of different colours and textures.

Fit for any purpose

Our services can be tailored to fit any needs, making them perfect for every homeowner. Whether it’s self-cleaning glass for high-up windows, solar-controlled glass to reduce glare in summer or multifunctional glass with a mix of all the best qualities, we’ll find the best solution for your home.

Customer focus

If you’re lucky enough to live in a listed or conversation property, there are a few regulations you’ll need to follow. The same is true if you want to remove original glass, add double glazing or install security glass. You don’t have to face these hurdles alone though – at Fix a Sash, we advise homeowners on the best course of action and help with applications too.

Sash window painting

Sometimes the biggest issue with sash windows is not being protected from the elements. We have specialist partners that can ensure your sash windows are properly painted.

More about our Sash Window Painting Services

Sash Window Painting

Are your sash windows looking a little worse for wear? Would a fresh lick of paint bring them back to life? Don’t worry. Fish a Sash is here to help.

Repainting will give your sash windows a lift, but it’s not a job for anybody. Get it wrong and you could face all sorts of issues.

A professional paint job will keep your sash windows in good working order. That’s where Fix a Sash comes in. Our team of sash window painting experts will make sure your windows are painted perfectly from head to toe. We won’t settle for anything less than great looking sashes that work like a dream. 

Why paint matters

You might be tempted to leave your sash windows with flaky or patchy paint. You’ll regret it if you do. Without proper paint coverage, the wood on your sash windows will be exposed to the elements. When moisture gets in, they’ll start to swell and contract, letting draughts in and causing windows to jam.

On top of that, the moisture can cause windows to decay and even rot. It’s a lot easier and cheaper to get them painted now than repair or replace them further down the line.

A proper paint job

We all know someone who’s a dab hand at painting – whether it’s a shed, garden fence or even your living room. Unfortunately, painting a sash window is a different kettle of fish.

As well as having a steady hand, you need to have next-level knowledge of every part of a sash window. Not to mention how it all works together. Here are just a few common slip ups made on second-rate paint jobs…

 

Your sash windows won’t move right

Paint applied too thick. Adding paint to the wrong areas. Or painting over existing coats. These can all lead to sash windows that don’t open and close like they should. Unlike walls and other jobs, you can’t just grab a brush a paint away. Sash windows need to be properly stripped before painting. Cutting corners will result in windows that are uneven, stiff and awkward to open and close.

 

And they’ll jam shut too

That’s right. Painting the wrong areas can even make it impossible to open your windows. Not ideal when the sun’s got his hat on or you just want to let some fresh air in. Sounds crazy, but you’d be surprised how many windows we’ve seen painted shut.

 

Is that a draught?

Believe it or not, a bad paint job can even make your windows draughty. Why? In short, they stop the draught-proofing system from working. If any paint gets onto the draught-sealing brush, you can wave goodbye to windows that keep the cold out in winter.

 

Watch out for the glass

Think it’s easy to keep paint off the glass? Think again. So many DIY painters will get lines, splashes or even blobs of paint on the window pane. That’s not all. You’ve got to be extra-careful to avoid any scratches if you’re using sandpaper to get old paint off sash windows.

 

Don’t chance it

When it comes to your sash windows, the best advice we can give is to go professional. At Fix a Sash, we keep things simple, providing sash window painting you can trust at a price that doesn’t take the biscuit.

 

Fully trained

Our team of pro decorators have been fully trained in every little detail of sash window painting. From stripping the paint to applying a Goldilocks coat that’s “just right”. They deal with sash windows of all shapes and sizes – day in, day out – so you can expect tip top results every time.

Bespoke

We work in the best way for you. For example, we can make additional repairs to your windows before repainting them. But most importantly, we’re never going to make unnecessary changes and charge you over the odds.

High quality

What’s the point having the best in the business if we’re using shoddy paint? Our team use only the best materials on every job. That means the best paint, top-notch equipment and solid hardwood if any repairs are needed.

 

Hands on

Repairing sash windows with a machine is like trying to tickle someone with a crane. It can’t be done. We strip paint precisely with sandpaper. We paint by hand. And we complete all repairs using traditional, time-served methods. The results speak for themselves.

 

Put us to the test

Don’t leave your sash windows looking shoddy and slowly getting worse. Get in touch with the team at Fix a Sash and we’ll get them back to their best. Give us a call on 0800 313 4688 or email hello@fixasash.comfor more information on our sash painting services.
