Skilled craftspeople with high-tech solutions
Our highly skilled craftspeople can restore your doors and windows (including sash windows) as part of our CosyGlazing installation service.
We use reclaimed timbers such as pitch pine and sustainably-grown oak together with epoxy resin compounds. Epoxy compounds are an import from the marine industry that combine with timber better than almost any other bonding and fairing material and can provide restoration with a lifespan equivalent to the original window.
We often meet customers who have been told to replace their windows because they are too decayed and we find we can restore them, replacing only 10-20% of the timber at around one third of the cost of a new hardwood window.
Historic England favours restoration over replacement because it preserves the very high quality old timber, allows you to keep your beautiful old glass, and retains the look and feel of a period property which can be spoiled by the introduction of new windows.
