Common problems with sash windows in North London

Sash windows have an incredible lifespan, but even the toughest designs won’t last forever. As the years go by, a number of problems can arise. In older properties, sash windows may begin to stick in their frames. This is usually the result of their alignment being disturbed by repainting, or warping of the wood.

There’s always a risk of the window’s weighting system becoming imbalanced, or of the glass growing cloudy. Wooden sash window frames are also vulnerable to rot, and this can cause the structure of the window to weaken. Even if you’re lucky enough to avoid these problems, an older window may become draughty over time. Whatever the problem, we know how to handle it.

Sash window repairs in North London

When it comes to original sash windows in North London, we would just about always advise you to repair or restore them, rather than replacing them altogether. This keeps the historic charm of your property intact and, thanks to our superior materials and specialised techniques, can extend the lifespan of your windows far into the future.

Before we begin repairing a sash window, we take the time to decide on the best approach. If the wood needs to be replaced, we have a superb Accoya softwood that offers unbeatable strength and durability. If necessary, we can also use our trusty Epoxy Repair Compound to keep everything sealed tight.

Sash window renovation in North London

Of course, sash windows don’t have to be broken to be worthy of attention. We’re also happy to help in situations where only a simple upgrade is needed. This could be to get rid of a draught or to make it easier to close the window.

The best way to assess the problem is to pay you a visit in North London. We are exclusive providers of the Solutions Brush Pile System, which offers a superior alternative to double-sided tape or plastic parting beads. While these options tend to be flimsy and can ruin the look of a historic property, our system is discreet and built to last.

Better still, it can reduce your energy bills significantly by eliminating draughts. It also dampens outside noise by as much as 50%, while reducing sticking and rattling in sash windows.

North London sash window replacement

As we said before, it’s always better to repair the original sash windows if possible. However, there are times when installing a replica may be the best option. This could be because the building regulations in North London require you to get new sash windows, or it may just be a personal preference.

Whatever the reason, we can make you a brand new set of replica sash windows and install them to the highest technical standard. We make all of our windows with the finest Accoya timber. Each window is fitted with gas-filled double glazing and built using our specially designed Solutions Brush Pile System. We can match any period style, right down to the box frames with their traditional set of cords, weights, and pulley wheels. As a final touch, we paint every frame by hand.

Types of sash window in North London

Sash windows can last for hundreds of years thanks to their sturdy design and excellent engineering. This means that there are several styles of sash window, with designs often changing when a new monarch ascended to the throne. Understanding the differences between these styles is a vital part of finding the right sash window for your North London home.

We have an in-depth knowledge of historic sash windows and have worked with every design imaginable. Rest assured, we will always find the best solution.

Georgian sash windows, North London

Georgian sash windows are the oldest typically found in North London, dating from 1714 to 1837. The most common design from this era is either a six over six or eight over eight arrangement of glass panes, divided by astragal bars.

Victorian sash windows, North London

A Victorian property in North London (one built between 1837 and 1901) is more likely to have sash windows with a two-over-two-pane arrangement. Victorians loved to experiment, so other designs can also be found.

Edwardian sash windows, North London

Although it only lasted from 1901-1910, the Edwardian era gave birth to several distinct types of sash window in North London. The most common of these was a six over two pane configuration.

Most sash windows in North London will fall into one of these categories, but there are some notable exceptions. These include horizontal sliding sash windows and sash windows with arches instead of rectangles.

It was good to receive such a quick and professional job. Sam is very friendly and takes great care to ensure customer satisfaction. He always arrived on time and didn't go off and do other jobs in between. He was clean and tidy and the finished product is perfect. I can't recommend him more highly.

Excellent service from start to finish. Sam managed to restore to full working order our original Victorian sash windows. Until Sam came along, they’d not been opened in thirty years. Sam also installed two double glazed windows, replacing single glazed units. These are of excellent quality. Sam was totally professional and would highly recommend.

Excellent all round from initial quote, quality of products, to final installation. Original wooden sash windows installed 120 years ago removed and replaced with wooden double glazed sash windows with all the same period features and fittings. Value, friendly and accommodating service - would highly recommend.

Very good service all round from beginning to end. Needed to replace a pair of sash window where parts had gone rotten. Very good professional experience discussing replacement options with Sam - opted for double glazed solution with Sam offering extra drip bar to help keep rain water off. Installation service also very positive: Kyle and Dave very experienced fitters and very helpful. Very good experience all round.

We are absolutely delighted with the work Sam and Aaron have carried out on our home, replacing existing windows with double glazed sashes and repairing our front door. The job wasn’t without its technical challenges but Sam found the solution and produced great results. Sam produced a detailed quote and explained in detail what the work would entail, did everything he said he would do, turned up on time and worked extremely hard, always courteous and clearly explained any issues. I would highly recommend SSS, they’ve done a fantastic job.
