Heritage Sash Window Repair & Restoration
Wooden double hung sash windows arrived in Australia with the early European settlers. With no air conditioning available they understood that fully functioning sash windows allowed for good ventilation and so were well suited to a hot climate. By opening both top & bottom sashes an air current is formed. Cooler air flows through the bottom, as hot air vents from the top. The traditional vertically sliding design and timber construction remained popular for many years before the trend moved towards alternative window types, primarily due to cheaper manufacturing costs.
Many of the original box sash windows still remain today, however due to neglect or wear and tear many heritage windows are left inoperable or rattling and draughty at best. In fact many home owners remain unaware that both the top and bottom sashes should be able to slide, and so miss out on the ventilation potential their windows should offer them.
In some instance home owners have chosen to replace the original windows with alternative window technologies. Alternatives that offer enormous benefits such as draught seals, ease of operation and security locks, but rarely do these alterations enhance the internal or external appearance of heritage buildings.
Our refurbishment services blend modern fenestration advances into old windows, without altering the heritage appearance. Upgrade and restore your existing windows to ensure they are ready to face many more years of trouble free use.
