What do you need to know about wooden sash window installation or repair?
When having wooden sash windows installed there are a few options to consider. Obviously double glazing is expensive, as are certain types of wood, and you will also need to think about finishing and sealing the window. Have a budget in place, as well as your own measurements, and discuss your options with a tradesman. It is usually free of charge to get an assessment and quote for services like this. There are a number of companies that specialise in wooden window installations and repair, and they may have several designs for you to look through online.
Be sure to ask about the techniques used by your potential hires when installing wooden sash windows. They may apply a finish to protect the window and its paint, make it more waterproof or reduce the need for maintenance. Also be sure to ask about using sealants - you do not want drafts coming through.
Take the time to examine the qualifications and experience of each of your choices; an established professional may well be part of a tradesmans’ organisation, which typically enforce high standards and codes of conduct on members. They should also be able to provide feedback from previous clients or even pictures of completed jobs.
The cost of installing a wooden sash window can be between £75 to £150, though this will vary depending on your location, and of course with more expensive materials and designs the price will be higher. An installer should be able to provide a guarantee, usually of at least a decade. Your quote for repairing a wooden sash window will depend on the nature of the damage - you may well be advised to replace the entire window if the damage is severe.
