Really pleased with our windows! Prompt and helpful communication, extremely hard working team and a great looking (and hopefully better functioning) end result. Thank you!
Alex and the team have restored our 20 year old sash windows so they look brand new. The team worked non-stop to complete it and made sure everything was to an excellent standard. Thank you.
We’re very happy with the work we recently had completed on the windows. It was also done in great time, with the guys coming nearly every day, including weekends – absolute grafters. Thank you, our windows look great!
We had an excellent experience with Chameleon Decorators. The work was completed on time and to a very high standard throughout, all at a fair price. Would have no hesitation in providing a recommendation. Please note that the team work on the exterior only so you will need to factor in an internal job also!
Very pleased with the results, very professional service. Would recommend.
Excellent communication, service and professionalism. We spoke with Chameleon to restore some rotting wood french doors and wooden windows, as well as redecorate. We’d use them again without hesitation and would thoroughly recommend them.
Alex and his team are superb. We have used them before, and always been impressed – as we were this time – by their work ethic, their expertise and knowledge, the quality of their work, and their efficiency. I recommend them very highly indeed.
We do not hire temporary staff. Each member of our team has been thoroughly trained and has been working with us for many years.

In our timber window restoration projects we use Accoya and Tricoya wood. Accoya wood is a type of modified wood that is produced through a acetylation process. This process involves adding acetic anhydride to the wood, which modifies the cell structure and makes the wood more resistant to rot, pests, and decay. Accoya wood is often used in high-end furniture and cabinetry, as well as in exterior applications such as siding, decking, and fencing. In addition to its durability, Accoya wood is also environmentally friendly, as it is made from sustainable sources and can be recycled at the end of its useful life.
We work with lots of sash windows in Grade 2 listed buildings and conservation area properties. We do like-for-like timber frame repairs that don’t require planning permission as we do not change the style of the existing windows.
Sometimes a window’s sash cords are compressed or tangled and cannot move freely. In this case, we’ll clear out any paint from the stuck surface so you can open your windows without issue! We’ll either remove the problem paint during restoration or change out cords and weights if needed so that they will function properly for years of use!
Generally speaking, a 15 window project will take us 5-7 days.
