At Sliding Sash Solutions we have been repairing, renovating and replacing traditional Sash windows since 1999. As beautiful, charming and charismatic as traditional sash windows are if they are not properly maintained they can suffer from problems which include:
- Wood Rot
- Swelling or distortion of the woodwork
- Rattling in the wind
At Sliding Sash Solutions we resolve these problems with careful repair from our experienced craft persons and the introduction of our Solutions Brush Pile System™
Sash window functionality can also be compromised by ‘having the windows painted shut’. This is one of the main reasons customers call us to their home. The sliding mechanism in sash windows makes them more vulnerable to these problems than traditional casement windows. Sash windows are incorrectly perceived to be high maintenance and expensive, but well-maintained sash windows should last for generations to come without needing their parts replacing.
At Sliding Sash Solutions the clue is in our name! Our priority will always be “To keep your original sash windows sliding” for years to come. Secondly, we can recommend and implement, when required, an upgrade to the performance of your original windows. Sash window restoration implementing our unique Brush Pile System™ is suitable for listed buildings and conservation areas where replacement windows are deemed unacceptable, Listed Building consent is generally not required.
