A working set of shutters provides excellent noise reduction, insulation values, as well as providing additional security.
We can restore your existing shutters, creating added privacy and security to your home. Many old shutters become unusable due the shutters warping, over painted, painted shut or hinge and movement failure. We can restore original bay window shutters and window & door panels that have split or warped.
Exposed to all weathers year after year, sash timber windows take quite a beating. They can last for decades if you just keep them clean and protect them with a coat of paint.
But when water gets trapped in or against them, rot can take hold. We offer a full replacement service for rotten timber on any part of sash & case windows that matches the profile and thickness of the other wood areas on the house.
A simple epoxy repair will do the trick if the rot is confined to a small area, but if more than 10 percent of the timber is rotten, this should be cut out and replaced.
