How to Stop Your Timber Windows Rattling

Are your timber windows rattling in the wind? Did you know that you may not have to replace your windows to stop them rattling?

Rattling occurs when there is a gap between the moving parts of the window (the sashes) and the window frame. When it is windy, this can cause rattling as the sashes may move about within the frame.

Without draught proofing, the gaps around a typical single sash window can add up to the equivalent of 6 square inches.

Draught Proof Rattling Timber Windows

Depending on the condition of your timber windows, draught proofing can often stop rattling sashes as well as reducing any cold draughts from coming into your home.

At The Sash Window Workshop, as part of our draught proofing and overhaul service, we will seal your wooden window using draught proofing material, ensure your wooden windows open and close correctly and fit new locks and furniture when required.

If you have sash windows which are dropping when you open them, we can also replace the cords and weights at the same time, fixing this issue for you and making the window safer to open.

Replace Rattling Windows

If your windows are in a poor condition, we are also able to replace them with like-for-like timber windows which are made to measure in our workshops in Berkshire. All our replacement timber sash windows and casement windows are draught proofed as part of the installation process.
