Job description

Hi, Looking to either fix/upgrade current old wooden sashes or potentially replace them in Victorian Terraced House (no bay window). There are 4 windows in varying condition, but all have gaps, window sills needing a little bit of TLC, drafts, don't close properly and don't run smoothly. All are very old, not rotten, but single glazed and very inefficient. Looking for quotes to a) renovate / upgrade and b) replace them. Requirements for new windows: clear visual improvement (sills included), energy efficient, wooden etc.

Most likely viewing will be required to assess exact work needed.

Adam is a great guy who knows what he's talking about, has a lot of experience and just seems like a very genuine, straight forward and trustworthy person. He did exactly what he said he would do whilst being very courteous, friendly and trustworthy. He draft proofed the windows, fixed the mechanisms, replaced sash cords where necessary, rebalanced the weights, replaced two panes of glass that were cracked as well as fitted completely new fixtures (locks, handles and grips) and gave them a new lick of paint. He basically gave them a new lease on life. The windows look much better now and particularly now that the cold spell has set in we can see and feel the difference. We particularly liked that he needed zero supervision as we weren't at home when he carried out all works. Things were moving exactly to plan and he left the house super clean, there was literally nothing we had to do. I would definitely recommend him and use him again.
