Retaining The Charm of Your Sash Windows
Like you, we appreciate the stylish good looks of sash windows however, we are well aware that with time, they deteriorate. Original sash windows don’t have the benefits of modern windows such as good insulation, noise reduction and double glazing. With age, sash windows often become stiff to operate, they also let in cold air and in many cases, there are visible signs of rot. Luckily, all of these problems can be eradicated using a trustworthy service such as White Cat Joinery. You can be assured of a premium quality finish retaining the charm of your handsome sash windows.
We Understand Sash Windows
We understand why your sash windows are integral to the look of your home. Not only are they exquisitely beautiful, they are also a valuable feature of your home.
As many sash windows date back to the 1700’s, over time, they do deteriorate. The mechanism that allows them to move up and down with ease can stiffen, break and generally decline. That’s why you get draughts, dirt, poor insulation, rattling and even noise pollution from the outside. Modern windows are made to provide homes with good insulation so keeping warmth inside and they also block out unwanted exterior noise. We know modern looks won’t work for you but there are still lots of things that we can do to get those modern benefits. For example, with good insulation, you can also reduce the cost of your central heating, which might be working overtime to combat those draughts!
