Sash Window Restoration, Double Glazing & Draught Proofing, Hatfield Heath

This project in Hatfield Heath in Essex included the the installation of slimline double glazing to the original sash windows, sash window restoration & draught proofing and timber front door restoration

This project involved the installation of slim line double glazing to the original sash windows of a house in Hatfield Heath.  The work was carried out to 6 sash windows and a bay window including 3 sash windows.

The team also carried out a full restoration on the sash windows, including stripping all old paint from all the timber of the sash frames themselves, as well as all old paint from the window boxes and sills.  Many of the sills required new hardwood sills or repairs using spliced sections of hardwood and resin. The boxes, sills and internal architrave is then fully decorated.

To allow the slim line double glazing to fit within the frames, the team routered the sash frames within our workshop to increase the rebate size, before installing the new double glazed units with polymer putty.  The sash frames are then fully decorated before being returned to the property to be installed with draught proofing and new window furniture.

The team also carried out a restoration of the front of the property’s front door.  The large original door required fully stripping back, before repair work was carried out with resin and then draught proofing fitted to the door.

“I recommend London & Herts Sash Windows very highly. Firstly, the finished product: we had the windows in two rooms refurbished. They repaired the old rattly originals into properly fitting, draught-proof, double-glazed windows. We love them. They have made a big difference to us. The work is beautifully done, to a high standard.
Secondly, the team were an absolute pleasure to work with. They kept us informed at all times, they were responsive and they were minimally disruptive. Big thumbs up from us. We would like to have them back for other windows too.” Ana Scott
