How We Draught Proofing Sash Windows in Kent
To overhaul and Draught Proofing Sash Windows in Kent we remove both top and bottom sashes. We then machine a groove in the top of the top sash and in the meeting rail of the bottom sash, and then install a weather pile into these groves. Once this is done we replace the parting bead and staff bead both of which have the weather pile pre-installed.
We replace the cord with a traditional style cord that is pre-waxed and pre-stretched. The weights will also be altered if required, in order for the sashes to operate in the correct manner.
The window will then be put back together with traditional style window furniture to finish it off.
