Good ventilation is essential to prevent the humidity levels in a room or house from causing condensation which can lead to the growth of mould. The gaps around an average wooden sash-window without draught-stripping effectively comply with the Building Regulations' requirements for background ventilation. However, most of us would like more control over the howling gale that this can seem like in the depths of winter!

Many of the manufacturers supply to the trade for either new build or restoration work. Sash windows were traditionally made using softwoods such as red deal or hardwoods like oak, or a combination of the two. These days wood from a wider range of trees is used, some treated with new, more environmentally friendly timber treatments than were available in the past.

In most cases it is fairly simple to remove the screw and prise the bottom of the pocket out, though due to a build of paint-layers it can sometimes be hard to locate the screw. A mouse is what you use to pull sash-cords through the box sections of sash-window frames. It is basically a weight attached to a piece of string, the main requirement being that it can be threaded over an axle-pulley.

read more › If you can, check that the axle-pulleys are not damaged or too badly worn to run smoothly, now is the time to replace them if they are. With the knife, score through the paint where one of the staff beads meets the inside lining, this makes for a much neater job, especially if there are lots of layers of old paint. Using the chisel, start about halfway up and prise a staff bead away from the frame, taking care not to damage the arris (corner) of the inside lining. Work your way up and down until you can spring it out from where it is wedged in by the mitred joints top and bottom - watch out for the nails, they can be a bit vicious.

Can you tell me where there is a good company that can fit seven sash windows and not charge the earth to do it?. The weight mechanism in one of my windows is malfunctioning on one side so I cannot lower the top sash without using excessive force. Should I replace the window?. I have recently had my single-glazed sash window double-glazed but it won't work on the pulley system because the window is now heavier.

read more › One of the advantages of living in a new house is the improvement in standards of draught-proofing and insulation of modern window frames, and most more traditional homes have been fitted with double-glazed uPVC windows to improve their energy efficiency. If you ignore the carbon footprint of the manufacturing of uPVC windows the claims of energy efficient design and low maintenance are indisputable. However, while it takes decades to recover the energy costs of uPVC manufacture, timber windows are actually locking up carbon for the lifetime of the windows and possibly beyond, depending on method of disposal.
