Bowerswell Road, Perth

This is a good example of a large scale refurbishment project and displays how you can gain longevity for your single glazed sash and case windows.

Sixteen windows in this large two floor property were removed and subsequently refurbished. All top and bottom sashes were removed and old ironmongery replaced. Excess paint was removed from the cases in order to provide a smoother opening and closing action. New solid brass ball pulley wheels were fitted and weights, previously set aside, were re-fitted. Top sashes were re-fitted, re-roped and all cases inspected for rot. Any missing putty was replaced and window frame faces were sanded and prepared ready for painting.

Damaged pointing was renewed and security was enhanced by fitting lockable fasteners and height restrictors to the ground floor windows.

Extra insulation and warmth will be enhanced by our installation of draught proofing to all of the 16 windows. This involved the removal and subsequent replacement of the old parting beads and baton rods. We then fitted new parting beads with integral brush strips and baton rods fitted with brush seals on the lower cills.

Our specialised painters then completed the job after thoroughly preparing all surfaces, undercoating and top coating the windows.

“Just to say the boys have done a fantastic job. The windows are looking great! The boys were easy to have round the house, and were polite. They tidied up well after finishing each room.”
