Our Services

We can reglaze your old timber frame sash windows with double glazing. Repair frames, cords, sills and putty prior to re-decoration. We are a local Cambridge company, based in Trumpington. 

Period windows can be reglazed with slim double glazing without a need for the sash replacement

Old wooden Sash or Casement windows are always a challenge when it comes to double glazing. Rebates (a gap where a glass pane fits into) in such windows are quite narrow. Standard double glazing, unlike vacuum double glazing, would simply not fit into such rebates. Also, frames need to be strong enough to carry the extra weight of double glazing.

Originally they were meant to carry the weight of single glass. Installing double glazing into such frames will make them dangerous to operate. To make things even trickier, sash windows with a system of weights and pulleys need a competent adjustment to make sure the extra weight of double glazing does not impact their smooth operation.

We deal with all of the above challenges and provide first-class reglazing service to the owners of wooden frame windows in Cambridgeshire.

In our Sash Windows double glazing project, we use Fineo glass 6.7 mm thick

We work with Fineo glass. It is only 6.7mm thick, yet provides the thermal performance of a standard size double glazing unit. It is an excellent choice for period properties. For windows with very narrow rebates, we have a tailor-made solution. Not only do we widen such rebates, but also strengthen frames so they can carry the extra weight. For sash windows, we do weight rebalancing to ensure they work in a safe and smooth manner.
