We at Box Sash Window Repair Ltd are Timber (wooden) Sash Window, Casement and Door Specialists servicing in Kent and the South East of England. We are a small family business based in Kent and have been renovating sash windows for over 15 years. We maintain a down to earth approach with complete transparency from quotation to the work being carried out. Everyone that works for Box Sash Window Repair Ltd has been trained ourselves in this niche field of repairing sash windows rather than replacing them. Our main objective is to offer the best possible outcome for you. We are conservationists and will always look to prioritise maintenance and renovation over costly replacements, we have explained the varying processes in more detail in our articles throughout our website.
It is quite often an unrecognised fact that the quality of the timber used for sash windows a hundred years ago (and more in some cases) is far superior to modern timbers used in new joinery today (with the exclusion of increasingly expensive materials such as Accoya etc.) as such, we feel it is more desirable to preserve and repair your existing sashes and frames wherever possible. Not forgetting to mention the environmental benefits of renovation over replacement. It is well documented of the price increases for raw materials in joinery over the last 2 years, this means we are able to offer extensive repairs, draught proofing and even double glazing for less than the cost of replacement. This process is often preferred by local councils if you live in a conservation area or listed building too.
We are proud to be different, offering upgraded services such as retrofitting double glazing and taking on repairs others won’t. Feel free to browse our articles which detail jobs we carry out weekly and what can be achieved from your existing sash windows. Additional services available include, one-off replacement cords (re-cording;) maintenance on wooden spring windows (some mechanisms are not available;) one-off repairs to the sashes, frames and sills; security upgrades; replacement glazing (reglazes;) or complete replacement if necessary of sashes or entire box frames.
Following a repair over replacement approach typically means we can save customers up to 50% vs replacements, sometimes more if the alternative quoted is replacement box frames too. Please don’t automatically assume your windows are beyond repair, the level of repair we are able to carry out for you could still save you money. However, as I mentioned, we offer a completely transparent approach to every part of the process, so if we believe something is beyond repair, we will always explain why. There are plenty of very good carpenters working in our field who are great at removal and installation, however, before you follow the recommendation of replacement windows, get in touch and we will ensure you get an open and honest assessment of your windows.
