Many old period properties, and indeed newer buildings, have the common problem of poorly fitting timber external doors. Whether a front door or side door, timber doors can warp or drop over time causing gaps to appear and letting in cold air.
Unlike the materials found in DIY stores for door draught proofing, which often sit on the edges of the door frame and are easily visible, unsightly and not very effective, the method we use to draught proof your timber doors enables us to fit the draught proofing materials to the door itself and so aren’t visible when the door is closed, and are very effective at sealing any unwanted gaps around the door.
London & Herts Sash Window’s timber door draught proofing services involves our craftsmen removing the door from the hinges and routering a channel in all four sides of the door, this then receives a carrier fitting flush in the timber and the draught proofing weatherpile of varying lengths can then be added.
This process will make a huge difference to any poorly fitted and draughty timber doors and keep that cold air out.
