Sash Window Draught Proofing

Rattles and draughts from old sash windows are common problems. The immediate solution in many people's minds are to have them replaced with overly expenisve double-glazing. Don't! This is seldom necessary.

Sash windows can be draught stripped very satisfactorily, with the added bonus of reducing fuel bills, improving sound-proofing and making the windows easier to operate.

Sash window draught proofing is more environmentally friendly than fitting new windows and can be installed for a fraction of the cost of complete replacement or double glazed windows. There is also a huge misconception that the energy that you're losing through your sash windows is due to the fact that they're single glazed when in fact it is due to the cold air coming into your home through the gaps around your windows. More heat is lost in this way than can be saved by trying to double-glaze your existing windows.
