Do You Need Wood Window Frame Repair?
Wooden frames usually rot at the point where the mullion joins the sill. Mullions are the vertical element that forms the division between windows. They can be used decoratively or to provide structural support. Its horizontal counterpart is called a transom. Transoms and mullions are susceptible to rot where they join at the sill. These can often be repaired without the need to purchase or create an entirely new wooden window frame.
Often it is the glazing (leaded window or single piece of glass) that allows water to damage which subsequently rots the frame. Condensation is a major cause of this form of damage.
Whilst rotten wood window frame repair can be executed, this is only so if the frame is still structurally sound. Often the rot will have destroyed the joint where the mullion joins the sill. Trying to patch this up is time consuming, labour intensive and usually only a stop gap.
Wood Replacement Windows
We provide entire wood replacement windows, so it matches the original frame completely. This is usually the most cost-effective option and we now use ‘sustainable’ wood that is guaranteed not to rot for 60 years and will only need repainting every 10 years or so.
We can also provide wood replacement windows for listed buildings. Often no permissions are required as it is classed as repair and maintenance, like for like, which the listing authorities encourage to preserve the building.
