Highlights

read more › We first carefully assess the extent of decay of your windows, both visually and using tried and tested methods. We take care not to create any further damage during assessment and will then be able to provide a report / quote for restoration of each window, with potential start dates and a realistic timescale. We then dismantle the window from the frame, so we can work on it within a nearby area that you have agreed we can use as our mobile 'workshop'. All paint is then removed from either the entire window (in full restoration projects) or from the affected area if the extent of decay is minimal and any decayed timber is carefully removed to prepare it for the restoration process.

Draught-Proofing is a simple and effective alternative to sash window replacement, providing maximum resistance to air and water penetration. Sash draught-proofing will also contribute towards achieving a better HIPs report or Energy Performance Certificate (EPC). Craft Decor can seamlessly integrate draught-proofing into existing sash windows and casements (usually as part of the restoration process) at a fraction of the cost of replacement or uPVC - retaining the window's integrity and authenticity while extending its lifetime and improving your home environment.
