Draught proofing sash windows & repair, London, Surrey, Sussex & Brighton.
Traditional timber sash windows are draughty, although they are designed to keep out the elements sash windows were built for a different era, when fire places were the source of warmth. To enable the fire places to keep going sash windows had to let in some air to let the fire draw and burn. Shutters and heavy curtains were used by the Victorian to try and help insulate. With modern central heating installed in homes, sash window draughts are not necessary and it makes controlling the heat in a room near on impossible. We can renovate the sash window and install draught proofing in to the window at the same time. The draught proofing will virtually eliminate all draughts and in turn this will reduce the dust and noise penetration which travels in the air through the gaps in the window. If your sash windows are not draught proofed then we strongly recommend that you have this done.

Draught proofing Sash windows
A traditional sash window has gaps which add up to an area roughly the same size as a six inch square. So if you have three sash windows in a room you can see why it is so important to get the gaps and draughts reduced. Ultimately the best service for a sash window is to upgrade to double glazed as well as draught proofing if your budget allows.
