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
Darlington Borough Council is one of the first of 100 areas in the country to secure funding from the Government’s £3.6 billion Towns Fund, which aims to ‘level up our regions’ after the Covid-19 pandemic.

One of the first questions we hear from people considering remodeling their garden and including a structure, such as a veranda, is how much will it cost. In this article we’re going to talk through the various things which could impact the cost. The material of the structure Wood While timber verandas are cheaper, they […]
A veranda can add so much to a property. From extending your living space to providing shelter that allows you to enjoy the outdoors all year round to protecting your garden furniture, it’s an investment that brings an extra dynamic to a home or business while increasing its value. But for all its benefits, a […]
Thank you so much for the windows and front door. They have exceeded my expectations! I was very happy with the two fitters that came, they were very professional, polite and left our house immaculate. I would definitely recommend your firm to a friend and family.
Mr & Mrs M, Eston, Middlesbrough
I just wanted to send you our thanks for yet another superb installation yesterday by Dan and crew……(our ‘phase 3’). The face-lift to our property this year has been a true transformation and your installers are always so courteous and helpful. Five star service
Mr U, Stokesley
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.
Mr & Mrs W, County Durham
ERW has been a major contributor in improving the physical appearance and energy conservation in our property which sits in the middle of Stokesley’s conservation area. In four phases of design and installation since early 2018 you have helped transform our property with complete distinction.
From assistance given to lodging planning applications with Hambleton District Council through advice on window design and final installation, I can give no higher praise than commending ERW on every aspect of installation.
I first visited your showroom and workshop in the Autumn of 2017 and was impressed with the factory tour afforded me by Kirsty Semark (Customer Service Supervisor). I was convinced that ERW could provide the solution to upgrading our ageing timber windows and appreciate the help and courtesy extended from you and all your staff – many of whom I have met during our four phases of installation.
The very recent installation of a new ‘Eton’ front door enhances the front elevation with perfection.
Please convey our sincere thanks to everyone involved with the workmanship, installation and administration.
Mr U, Stokesley
