Box sash windows and joinery

It was not all that long ago that sash windows that had gone past their best were simply chucked on the skip and taken off to the tip. There must be many home owners who now, either regret that decision, or have bought a property where the old sash windows have been ripped out, without trace of old. Don’t let your home be one of them.

Say no to destruction

It is sad to think of the destruction. Today, we know different and they are being salvaged and lovingly restored. You don’t have to be a history buff to get them restored either; you don’t have to go hunting across England, Scotland and Wales to find the tiny little outlet where the skilled craftsman lives in a remote hut.

In London and the South of England, at least, you have Envirosash right on your doorstep; they are skilled artisans and sash window restoration experts…and they don’t live in remote huts.

Hardwood joinery

One of the biggest problems that is evident in very old and crumbling sashes, is fixing the joinery. The reason this can seem like a minefield of major restoration work and big cost, is that homeowners often see that they need completely fresh box sashes.

Naturally, the pound notes swim dizzyingly before their eyes. You may also be worried about a complete mismatch if you go for repair, and then think it will be easier and cheaper to rip the lot out and replace. Stop. In fact, for expert sash window renovation specialists, replacing the joinery is a fairly straightforward issue. And it doesn’t mean massive expenditure. The hardwood joinery can be made to exactly match your existing style too.

Old meets new

We craft the replacement boxes with care and precision, replicating all the intricacy of design such as the curves, features and profiles of the originals. In this way, the elegant, sculptured look of old can be retained, whilst modernising them.

Joinery is a skilled craft and requires dedication and an eye for detail. Each window is individually created from hardwood; traditional mortice and tenon joints maintain the security and strength.

Victorian architecture

The replacement timber sliding sash, the box and the casement window are designed to mirror the Victorian originals; they are built to last. Window repair is not about installing a superficial fix which will degenerate quickly and you find you have to begin again in a few months.

Envirosash provides high quality sash window restoration services to London and the South of England. We restore, draught proof and install slim double glazing into existing period windows and doors. We also manufacture bespoke made to measure windows and doors, and all our joinery is crafted from Accoya wood.
