Thanks for the advice. Can’t wait to spend this money!
There’s fuck all weights on these like. It’s just a cord.If they're listed, make sure you save the glass and the weights, they can be very expensive to match up, sometimes the weight pockets can be to slim for modern weights, repairing the actual timber window sach or box should be a piece of piss for any chippy.
I don’t doubt it mate. I know nowt about windaz likeHave a look at the top of the window frame, the cord will disappear into a little hole, there will be a little pulley wheel there that the cord runs over and then it's tied to a weight inside the frame which is hollow. The window frame is just a long box hence Box Sash window.
If you can open it without getting a hernia you can lay odds there are counterweights in the frame.No idea.
Absolutely ideal that. Cheers. They’re f***ing freezing as well. Hope they can sort that out. Proper nuisance these like.If you can open it without getting a hernia you can lay odds there are counterweights in the frame.
They’re probably not the cheapest but we had Ventrolla do ours years back, installing draught proofing at the same time as we didn’t want to replace with new double glazed units. They did a cracking job on the bedroom windows.
We had a local joinery come in and completely replace the downstairs bay window a few years later (probably about 20 years ago now) and we’ve just repainted it during lockdown to find it still in excellent nick.
Stuart McKay Sliding Sash WindowsApologies for the boring thread. Have 3 large Victorian, Panelled sash windows that I need to be restored. I’ve no idea what I’m talking about here so excuse the mistakes. The building is listed so they need to remain exactly the same. The cords to open them are fucked. The wood has been painted millions of times so ideally I’d like them stripping down to the wood, made smooth, painted, sealed and made to be fully functional. Anyone know of anyone that can do this type of work? Had a chat online with a bloke but I didn’t get filled with confidence by what he was saying.
