The biggest benefit of replacement windows is not the fact that they are double glazed but the fact that there is no air leakage around the perimeter of the window. There is no doubt that double glazed units increase the thermal efficiency of the windows, however, the biggest increase in comfort levels occurs as a result of there being no air leakage. At Sliding Sash Solutions we install our Solutions Brush Pile System™ into your sash windows, which will eliminate gaps, making it easier to maintain a comfortable room temperature and resulting in more efficient use of energy.
Typically it takes one day to overhaul, service and install our Solutions Brush Pile System™ into one or two sliding sash windows.
Whilst your windows are being serviced a small amount of disruption due to noise, dust and opening to the elements is unavoidable. However, great care is taken to ensure disruption is always kept to a minimum. All work is carried out from the inside and dustsheets and dust extraction equipment are used. After completion of work, the room will be vacuumed and left tidy.
At Sliding Sash Solutions we offer a five-year guarantee, to cover the Solutions Brush Pile System™ and any associated repairs.

Your original sash windows contribute significantly to the character of your period property, an historic building starts to lose its integrity when any part of its original fabric is replaced. The original stone, wood and glass are usually of better quality than their equivalent modern materials and once removed, these hand crafted windows are lost forever along with the appearance of your home. By installing the Solutions Brush Pile System similar benefits such as noise reduction, draught proofing, greater performance and increased comfort levels can be achieved without the need for unnecessary replacement. Repairing, servicing and improving your original windows is almost always a more economic option than complete replacement. Wooden windows have been refined, tried and tested over centuries of use, and remain the most environmentally friendly, versatile, energy efficient and aesthetically pleasing window frame yet to be invented by man.
It remains a common misconception that wooden window frames are troublesome to maintain and that PVCu windows are durable and value-for-money.
