Sash windows restoration in Essex

Original wooden windows, whether they are traditional Georgian sash or the more modern Victorian sash windows, can now be restored and reglazed to look and perform as well as newly made windows.

During the restoration process, we will remove and repair any rot, install new glazing and draft-proofing seals, and spray paint all woodwork to ensure the wood is properly protected.

If your property is Listed and you wish to upgrade your windows to more energy-efficient glazing to reduce heat loss and external noise, we will assist you with planning application matters.

We’ll support your application by providing and backing it with examples of our past successful planning applications.

Please Note:

Our minimum order quantity is 10 windows. 
We do not work as an emergency call-out repair service.

    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!

    Frequently asked questions

    What types of timber are used for window restoration?

    Our team use Accoya wood when they need to repair or replace some parts of the window. Accoya wood is a type of modified wood that is produced through an 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.

    Are you able to work on Grade 2 listed buildings to repair windows?

    We understand the importance of preserving these historical landmarks and take special care when it comes to restoring windows in Grade 2 listed buildings.

    We are confident that our team can tackle any window repair job on these precious sites in a timely and efficient manner.

    Is there a way to unstick sashes that have become stuck or painted shut?

    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!

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

    We can typically finish a 15-window project in 5-7 days. This timeline takes into account both the preparation, restoration and repainting stages. We understand that our customers need their windows to look great and function properly as quickly as possible, so we are dedicated to getting your project done in a timely manner.
