Q

can the rubber sealants be replaced around double-glazed window units rather than replacing the whole window; windows installed at least 15 years ago?

Thanks both for your advice. It is much appreciated. Have now approached a couple of window fitters for quotes. Regards, Neil

Q

Does sash window draught proofing need to be done by a FENSA firm?

I need to have my 4 year old sash windows draught-proofed in order for building control to sign off on the original window installation. Do I need a FENSA registered company to do this or is it ok to use a handyman firm that advertises this type of work? There seems to be a big cost difference between these two options which makes me think that a handyman service may not be doing a proper job.

Update: thanks for your advice. I'll look for a handyman on MyBuilder in that case.

you don't need a FENSA registered company to do so unless you have your windows completely restoration new (box and sashes).
replace new sashes to existing box frames are not required FENSA.
