Wood Window Refurbishment
Refurbishment does mean something slightly different than repairs. When there is wood rot or the wood of the casing or frame is damaged, then replacement wood may become necessary. That does not mean you need to replace the entire window. It may even be possible to recover this wood if refurbishment is done correctly.
Did you come to own your house with it needing quite a bit of repair? Most people do. When buying an antique home, there are usually cut sash cords and missing pieces of hardware on most windows of the home. However, wooden sash repairs are necessary through the years with just typical wear and tear. The sash is the part that will ultimately open and close the window. It meets the frame of the window and has a rope and weight system that may need replacement or rebalancing.
Usually, with sash repair jobs, we will look at the complete needs for restoration. Using the architectural design of the window, we’ll focus our old house window repair on keeping the integrity of the home.
Glass repair can mean a number of things for antique windows, including window glazers or wood window reglazing. Glass repair is a long term solution as part of an antique window repair. It will also vary based on how the original glass was created. Ideally, if any glass needs replacement, then that replacement pane should be indistinguishable from the other surviving panes.
Double-hung windows are among the most common for vintage homes. Our trained staff take have worked with these types of windows for years. The wood window repair on these will often involve a full deconstruction of the window to ensure that parts out of sights, such as sash ropes or weights, are in top shape.
A window sill that is rotting is a risk in many different ways. Thankfully, it’s possible to restore rotted window sills. The humid and wet climate makes for wood rot. It is often possible to remove the rotted sections by drilling holes into the frame to apply filler or treat the wood properly.
