Sash Windows

All of our windows are hand made to measure in our workshops. We also offer a supply and fitting service (boarding up if required).

Our speciality, developed over many years experience is working sympathetically with listed buildings. From period Manor houses to grade 1 and 2 category buildings, we have constructed exacting replicas of all forms and types of casement windows.

Once completed the heating and weather integrity is massivley improved not to mention the cosmetic appreance. Take a look at our workshop video to see more (coming soon)...


Sash Window Repairs and Renovation

Old forge Joinery are specialists in the renovation and draught proofing of sash windows which means that with our help and expertise, in many cases you can renovate rather than replace your sash windows, ensuring that all the charm and original character of your sash windows can be retained.

Traditional wooden box sash windows look great and are extremely durable. With a small amount of general maintenance, when needed, they will withstand the elements and the test of time. However flaking paint, missing putty, open joints and gaps around the perimeter of sash windows can lead to moisture ingress which leads to wood decay. Common areas prone to rot are the windows sills, bottom rails, top meeting rails, lower sections of outer linings and lower sections of pulley stiles.

We are fully skilled in all traditional carpentry and joinery methods associated with windows of all varieties. Were relevent we can use epoxy resins systems. in conjunction with traditional timber repair techniques, this treatment makes good any decayed or damaged sliding sash windows bringing them to their former glory. This system ideal for carrying out repairs 'on site' which means the windows do not have to be removed, thus not creating and secondary damage to existing plaster work etc.

When replacing window sills to a sash window we can replace the full width of the sill or if required, in many cases the sill may be renovated/spliced and repaired. We also replace the lower sections of outer linings and lower sections of pulley stiles with housings cut into the new sill to accommodate the pulley stiles if required. Our new window sills are always in hardwood and all the timber used weatherproofed and can be finished to your specifications.
