Making Windows Beautiful again:
By their very nature, many traditional sliding sash windows are over 100 years old and with some dating back to the 1800s, it’s not surprising that draughts, rattles and operational issues are all too common. We recently organised a Conservation and Heritage Workshop for local conservation officers from across the North East. During the seminar delegates were able to see first-hand the techniques that our skilled team uses to renovate and refurbish timber windows. There was in particular interest in just how bad a state of repair a window could be in for us still to be able to renovate it. So we thought we’d share the technique in this blog.
ERW’s Full Draught Sealing system – for windows where both sashes slide. Installation is similar for the half draught sealing system except only the bottom sash slides and the top sash is sealed.
Permanent Seal – for when sashes are sealed and non-operational
STEP ONE any decaying timber is routed out to expose the ‘sound’ timber
STEP TWO The exposed timber is then treated
STEP THREE Timbabuild epoxy resin is used to fill the cavities in the timber
STEP FOUR The epoxy resin is moulded to match the existing profile of the timber
STEP FIVE The window frame is then painted
From the first visit right through to the final fitting we felt confident in the expertise of the company which had been endorsed by the finished installation of a lovely window.

I just wanted to say a big thank you for a job really well done. All your staff are helpful and the team carried out the installation were tidy and caused minimal disruption. Thank you!
Mr & Mrs N, Eppleby
Whilst not the cheapest quote, the presentation and professional approach persuaded me to use ERW. Standard of work and communication to let us know when the works will be conducted were excellent. Stain glass windows are perfect match and look excellent.
