Our expertise in replacement and restoration
Sash windows are particularly important to the look and feel of period properties. When they fall into disrepair, a house can look run-down. Beyond this, leaks, draughts and noise pollution can also become an issue.
In some homes, old timber sash windows are sealed shut to avoid these problems, but then become inoperable.
Our expert craftsmen specialise in replacing and restoring sash windows to their original perfection. We’ve also helped customers to reintroduce traditional sash windows where modern windows have been fitted.
Sash window restoration
At FAIRCO, we’re proud of our sympathetic and considerate approach to the restoration of sash windows. Our skilled craftsmen can restore parts or whole elements of existing sash windows that have begun to rot or deteriorate. We can also improve your existing sash windows by adding features to prevent draughts and noise from entering your home.
The restoration process
If you’re wondering what’s involved in restoring your sash windows, here’s an idea of the work our top-class craftsmen and master joiner carry out to assess and restore a period sash window.
- Remove and inspect the sashes
- Clean away any rot from the sills and boxes
- Repair or replace the wood and sash weights
- Check the pulleys are working correctly
- Fit new sash cords
- Install daft-proofing brushes and beads
- Replace broken catches
A typical sash window allows warm air to leak out and allows cold in. But with FAIRCO’s discreet draught-proofing, your house will become warmer instantly. This reduces heating costs and increases comfort and warmth in your home, without impacting the look of your sash windows.
With old sash windows, noise can become a big problem - particularly if you live in an urban area. To reduce noise and alleviate the effect it has on your comfort levels, our specialists can install acoustic glass to sound-proof your sash windows.
This can be easily fitted without altering the traditional look of your home. In most cases, we replace old sashes with new acoustic glass sashes, which fit into your existing window boxes.

Sash window replacement
At FAIRCO, our services cater to people who want to upgrade and revamp their windows and doors. While we can replace any window type, our team has specialist skills in replacing and restoring traditional sash windows.
Our customers choose FAIRCO to carry out their sash window replacements for a number of reasons. As well as wanting their house to look its best, security, insulation and soundproofing are often to the forefront of their mind. Luckily, all the sash windows we fit come burglar-resistant and energy efficient as standard.
We also work on a range of corporate projects.
We are currently working on a large project in Mount Argus with a total refurbishment of original sash windows. All windows had to be stripped back to bare wood; all windows had to be draft proofed; all rotten timber to be removed and new Accoya timber was used to replace any rotten timbers.
All windows also had to be repainted to the highest standard. All windows required new hardware, including replacement of open restrictors with classic, authentic components.
