Sash windows refurbishment and retrofitting prices

Sash window refurbishment and double glazing cost

We offer two sash windows refurbishment service packages: Wooden windows restoration and double glazing retrofitting.

Window renovation focuses on timber frames and window functionality; it includes re-decoration as an optional add-on draught-proofing.

Double glazing retrofitting includes everything from the window renovation package and the installation of slim-profile double glazing, which makes the original sash window significantly more energy efficient.

Accoya/Tricoya wood is warranted for 50 years above ground, 25 years in-ground/freshwater. Therefore, windows laminated with Accoya/Tricoya wood will outlast any new hardwood windows.

Cost to convert single glazed windows to double glazing

The cost of converting single glazed windows to double by retrofitting double glazing to wooden ones is around £1600 per window.

This cost includes restoration of timber frames, weight adjustments, draught-proofing and re-decoration. Retrofitting will not give desired benefits if window frames are not structurally sound or if cold air still comes through the gaps between moving parts of the window. For this reason, double glazing retrofitting requires all spectrum of restoration tasks.

After retrofitting and refurbishing, your previously single glazed window will upgrade its energy rating to be highly efficient, as vacuum double glazing has a 0.7 U-value, the same as triple glazing.

This type of house improvement is considered a capital investment, which means it will increase the value of your property when sold and reduce your running cost.

Retrofitting also has an intangible value, as it helps preserve the original window frames while improving thermal insulation significantly.

What сustomers say

Your questions answered

Do your refurbish casement windows?

Yes, our team can refurbish timber windows of any style; casement, sash, bow, bay, french door/window, arch, Venetian. 

Some of my windows are less rotten than others, will this affect the price per window?

The price per window depends on the window’s design, size, difficulty of access and how many sides of the window will need lamination. Therefore, the price is more affected by how many sides of the window require lamination rather than the depth or extent of the rot. Our specialists will be happy to explain this in more detail at a quote meeting.

What do you mean by an “average size” of a window?

For the sake of guide pricing we use the following dimensions: 900-1200мм centre bar style sash window

What is the lead time to get the exterior window renovation work done?

Generally speaking, a 15 window project will take us 5-7 days.
