Sash Window Draught Sealing and Refurbishment
It is important to inspect your windows regularly to check that they still work properly and do not let in draughts. If you notice any problems, it is important to get them fixed before they grow into a bigger problem.

- minor easing, maintenance and adjustment, as part of our draught sealing service
- painting windows, as part of our redecorating service
- complete window re glazing using our unique Bi-Glass system
- a minor repair service for period properties located within central London.

Our refurbishment products are excellent quality and value, but we will only recommend them to you if we believe they represent a good long term investment. If your windows or doors are beyond repair we will always recommend partial or full replacement.
Are your windows draughty and letting in the winter chill? The Sash Window Workshop’s draught proofing and overhaul service is designed to bring new life to any sash window and will dramatically improve window performance at a fraction of the cost of replacement, keeping you warm and cosy throughout the winter months.
We will bring your old timber windows into the 21st century, whilst retaining the aesthetic character and charm of your home. We are specialists and have worked across a number of listed buildings and period properties, including Georgian, Edwardian and Victorian homes.
The gaps around a typical single sash window can add up to the equivalent of 6 square inches. Without draught sealing, draughts, dust, dirt and noise all flood into your home and heat rushes out, leaving you feeling uncomfortable as well as costing you money in heating bills.
Our sash window draught seal service comprises of:
- draught sealing
- repairs to damaged timber or glazing
- fitting new ironmongery and locks

Your timber sash windows should be regularly painted as part of their on-going maintenance. When painting period timber windows, it is important to ensure that the windows are painted sympathetically, as badly painted windows can reduce the value of your property and may damage them.
We are able to offer a specialist redecoration service for the repainting of period timber windows, alongside our draught sealing and overhaul service.
If your existing sash windows are single glazed, draughty and cold, or even allow unwanted noise into your home, we may have the perfect specialist solution for you. The Sash Window Workshop is the only company in the UK to use the unique Bi-Glass system for double glazing and re glazing of existing wooden windows.The bi glass process is as follows:
- removal of the moving parts of the sash window
- removal of the existing glass
- re-glazing with either a single or double glazed unit
- full draught seal service as above
All the work is carried out at your home in one of our customized Bi-Glass vans. This service is speedy, efficient and about two thirds of the cost of manufacturing new windows.
