A quick facelift, repairs and painting, for wooden windows in Cherry Hinton, Cambridge
While this classic family home in Cherry Hinton, Cambridge wasn’t especially old and its windows in relatively good shape, it still needed to be freshened up and given a new lease of life. In just 3 days we gave this property new curb appeal and allowed the owners to keep their attractive wooden windows for many years to come.
We were able to simply sand down the exterior woodwork and complete some minor window repairs where necessary. This included the window sills, the soffits, the garage door and surrounds. Prior to spray painting we carefully protected all of the exterior windows and walls with film and masking paper. This is a crucial stage in our work as we want to protect brickwork from even the tiniest drops of paint. The result is a fresh and beautiful finish that gives this home a little well needed TLC and has a smooth and even mirror-like finish. The homeowners were able to maintain the beauty of their sashes and not lose the character of their home.
When windows are in a relatively good shape and only need minor repairs, it is always a good idea to have them done sooner rather than later. The bigger the repairs, the more expensive the work ( or even a complete replacement) and shorter a maintenance cycle will be. Once we repair and paint your windows, we recommend that they are refreshed again in 5-10 years’ time. With mainstream decorators this cycle is usually 3-4 years and involves substantial repairs.
