The charm and character that original sash windows bring to period buildings are qualities that can’t be replaced. But they can be restored.
With a long history of sash window restoration on period properties, listed buildings and within conservation areas, ERW offers both the specialist experience and level of craftsmanship to reinvigorate your windows.
From the replacement of rotting wood to the removal of draughts and rattles, we meticulously transform your iconic sash windows to meet modern efficiency and performance standards, while maintaining the timeless appeal they bring to your property.
Rotten timber removal and repair
Decayed and damaged timber in the window sashes, boxes and cills is removed and can be replaced with custom moulded timber, manufactured in our factory to match the existing profile of your windows. Where lesser sash window repairs are required, a superior strength rot and crack proof repair system ensures long-lasting performance.
Full draught-proofing of windows
Using our ERW Draught Seal System, parting and staff beads are replaced with new beads (including our brush seals) to effectively draught-proof sash windows, preventing draughts, dust ingress and rattles caused by air gaps, as well as considerably improving the overall energy efficiency of your property.
Security is paramount to the longevity of sash windows and the safety of the home. Our traditionally styled ironmongery locking options offer protection against intruders, misuse and potential accidents.
In keeping with the original aesthetics, all existing hardware can be replaced or installed where required. Along with the replacement of cords and improvement of sashes and pulleys, cut brass sash lifts and catches installed so that windows perform as well as they look.
Encapsulation and replication of original leaded units
Leaded windows provide a beloved charm that’s synonymous with historic buildings. By encapsulating original units or reproducing designs to the finest detail, we help you retain the timeless appeal of the window whilst enhancing performance and longevity.
We are delighted with the product supplied. The leaded windows look really good and very much in character with the house and with the previous windows. The installation team have been very helpful and informative throughout and are a credit to your company. An excellent job and done exactly as per your contract program (which makes a nice change from some of the builders we have used in the past!). Thank you.

Thanks so much for excellent service, so happy with new door, it’s exactly how I wanted it to look . Everyone at ERW was so helpful and informative from start to finish, I will definitely recommend to all friends and family.
I don’t think I can think of any improvement you could male, we are very satisfied particularly that the actual installation was so quickly and expertly carrier out leaving us with no tidying up to do.

I was delighted with the installation process. Steve and Tony worked very hard and took a lot of care around our house. My husband thought we would end up having to redecorate but was amazed that the windows looked like they had always been there. We are delighted and have had a number of positive comments about them. Thank you.
