A huge shoutout to Ian, who completed the repairs and to Nick for the painting. I would be more than happy to use this company again!


Mike and Jessica

The Surrey Sash team did an amazing job of repairing my sash and case windows. They paid close attention to detail, displayed great knowledge, and were very tidy both during and after the work. The same can be said for the painters. I would highly recommend them.

I am extremely pleased with the service that I received from Surrey Sash. The team did a superb job of repairing my windows and installing double glazed sash inserts. I was very anxious before starting such a large project, but they were incredibly professional throughout and kept me informed every step of the way. The sashes installation was finished to an outstanding quality – it is clear that they take immense pride in their work! I’m looking forward to seeing the final result when the crew come back to finish off the painting and decoration.


Sash window sill and structure repair

The structural integrity of your sash window must be enough to support its weight. When the window cannot support its own weight, the excess pressure leads to seizing, by misaligning or cracking the frame.

We restore and replace rotten timber around your window and window sills with wood hardener or preservative to prevent further decay. 

We also consider reinforcing the frame with extra timber or metal supports, so the window has a strong enough structure to stay functional. 

Gables and soffits repair and decoration

We repair and restore other timber features such as Timber-framed conservatories, wooden garage doors, period gateways and façades such as timber claddings and Soffits.

Our recent projects

Photos from one of our Edwardian sash window restoration projects. Hundreds of other photos of damaged windows have been sitting on our hard drive, waiting for someone from admin to find the time to show them to the world.

The glazing configuration of Edwardian sash windows (1901-1910) is unique and easily recognizable.

Their aesthetic appeal comes from intricate details such as decorative horns, curved heads, and ornate mouldings.

It sucks to be a bottom sash

The sashes and window frames were in a terrible state, with lots of rot and falling apart parts.

Furthermore, if you read some other case studies, you will notice the recurring pattern that the lower sash is typically worth.

The bottom rail is the most vulnerable and damaged part of the windows we come across in all our sash window repair projects in Surrey and London.

The weather affects the lower sections of windows, including casement, sash, and wooden front doors, the most. This is the reason behind all the issues.

The photo shows how badly affected the bottom rail of the sash is.

The putty is gone, and the timber is severely penetrated and rotting.

This is also a good illustration that loose putty issues must be addressed promptly.

The results of the sash windows restoration

The results of the sash windows restoration project were nothing short of remarkable.

Moreover, the Surrey Sash team expertly restored and redecorated each window, bringing them back to their former glory.

The replacement of a couple of badly rotten window sills. Along with the servicing and lubrication of all sash cords and pulleys, ensured that the windows operated smoothly once again.

The project not only improved the overall aesthetic appeal of the building. It also increased its energy efficiency by eliminating drafts.

Thanks to the skilled workmanship of Surrey Sash, the restored sash windows will continue providing beauty, comfort, and functionality for years to come.

Georgian Sash windows restoration

Those Georgian Sash windows are not original but still single-glazed; they have installed 20 years ago, and after 10 years, the maintenance with painters and decorators began.

The property owner had enough of needing to repaint those timber windows every 3 years and contacted us for proper restoration of timber frames, so they can last for at least 8-10 years without maintenance.

The window sill, bottom rail of the sliding sash and corners of the frame were in a bad state as, during past maintenance, some major issues were ignored and covered up with a layer of paint.

All timber windows are made of softwood which does not add to durability.

The problem with glazing putty

The putty on the lower parts of the glazing Georgian bars starts to crumble and fall out.

In our work, we do not use traditional putty because it is now durable; it lets the water in after only a couple of years and starts the rotting of the wooden frames.

We use a modern, resin-based putty that is much more durable and does not allow water in as it has better glass adhesive properties.

The French-style door was also in a bad condition.

Our team renovated the frame and replaced the door drip.

The window after restoration. The frame was renovated, and we also scraped off the old paint from the glass. If the same were done with the old paint from inside, the window would look like new.

Window renovation completed

After window timber frame renovation, our team re-painted the windows using a paint sprayer. The customer was amazed by the final result as the windows now look new. The whole house looks different!

Traditional cottage windows renovating

There are many reasons why you might want to repair your traditional cottage wooden windows. Perhaps they are starting to show their age, or maybe you just want to refresh the look of your period property, but most likely the main reason is rot and facking paint, and this was a case with our recent restoration projects where some window parts decayed badly because of rot, weather, age and irregular maintenance.

Our recent cottage windows restoration project

Wooden windows before the restoration.

Original wooden cottage doors before renovation

The lower window joints are almost gone. All wooden window sills had some rotten wood as sills are most exposed to weather compared to other parts of the window.

Our team also took care of all front and garden wooden doors by removing all old paint and repairing wood. The pictures of the door before the restoration and after speak for themselves.

We started the works by removing all old loose paint and rotten wood. We then repaired all the windows by installing new wooden parts and joints where necessary. Our team also replaced all cracked window panes with new ones.

To repair wooden frames, we removed sashes. The casement sashes were also repaired on the ground and brought back to their places at the end of each day. The new putty was applied to all glazing bar surfaces. After that, all windows were primed and painted with two coats of paint.

The wooden front door after restoration and painting. The whole process took around 1 week to complete and the results are impressive.

The renovated cottage windows look like new now and will protect the property from the bad weather for many years to come.

It is important to do regular maintenance on your windows to prevent rot.
