Wooden windows come with charm and elegance but they can become weather-beaten and damaged after many years. This can lead to decay and rot and ultimately make them ineffective at keeping the heat in your home. Heritage windows are also single glazed and less energy efficient vs modern windows. For single glazed windows, we offer double glazing retrofitting service where we fit thin, lightweight vacuum glass into original frames instead of a single glass.
Upgrading your home doesn’t need to incur huge costs by getting new windows. However, minor repairs will only improve the appearance of your home too – and unlikely to last 3 years, our window refurbishment service offers a longer-lasting option that is equivalent to replacement in terms of the maintenance cycle.

At Chameleon, we specialise in wooden sash windows repair in Chelmsford. By restoring your wooden windows, we get your windows back to full working order, we call this functional restoration (repair pulley and cord system, locks), protect them for decades by laminating weather affected exterior surfaces with Accoya/Tricoya wood and having them look beautiful at a competitive price. This means restoration provides far better value than window replacement.
The replacement is also not always an option, if you live in Grade 2 listed property, unlike restoration, you will need to obtain permission from the conservation officer before you can install new windows and new windows will need to match the style and details of your original windows which means costly custom joiner.
