Sash Window Repair

Sash windows can be out of balance and break. Pam is on the lookout on the internet for wavy glasses that are salvaged and keeps an eye out for discarded sashweights made of metal. She then seeks replacements, such as nuts or washers, to ensure that her window is balanced.

Pam will bed each pan by putting the glazing material in a rope into the rabbet groove, or pocket around the opening. This reduces drafts and reduce the cost of heat loss.

Sticking Sashes

It’s a nightmare when double-hung windows get stuck. They’ll shake in the event of storms and you’ll lose your view. On the other side, a window that’s too loose will let external air and noise through, and your energy bills can increase. Both scenarios are not optimal, but both can be addressed with the proper tools and perseverance.

Paint can accumulate on the channels of old weighted window tracks, which can cause them to block. The majority of these issues can be resolved by cleaning and oiling the tracks.

Start by removing the caulking that was between the window stop (the interior one) and the window frame. Scrape off any paint that has been accumulating. Use a sharp knife and put sheets of plastic and dust-collecting vacuum cleaners below the surface to collect any paint dust or chips.

You can then clean the tracks with a dry cloth, then apply an oil based on silicone to aid in their smoother movement. It is available at many home improvement stores or on the internet. You can test it by moving the sash either upwards or downwards.

If it continues to stop the sash cable could be defective. Check to see whether the cord is stuck or hanging from the sash or if it’s snapped. If this is the situation, you’ll need to re-cord the window.

A pin that holds the rail in place might have lost its grip. It isn’t easy to fix and you will have to call an expert most often.

If a pin doesn’t fall out, but the wood has gotten warped or swollen it’s a good idea to use a wood hardener on it. This liquid will dry quickly and timber can repair damaged wood. It’s not necessary to remove the windows on your sash to repair them. After you’ve used it you’ll be able break the two sashes by placing a block of wood on the bottom corner where they meet, and tapping it lightly with the tool.

Draughts

Draughts are a significant issue for windows with sash windows that are old particularly during winter months. Most often, they are caused by decayed timbers, cracked putty, worn sash cords or unbalanced weights, they can let cold air seep into the window and make it difficult to keep your home warm. You can stop draughts by filling gaps with expanding foam, or by using draught-proof strips that are available at most hardware shops. They are efficient, but they will require replacement periodically as the foam expands over time with usage.

Gapseal is a more permanent solution. It’s a spongy, rubbly seal that can be cut and then push into the gaps between the window frames of the sash. It can be applied by itself or in conjunction with adhesive strips on the bottom and top of the frame. This option is quite costly and will need to be reapplied over the duration of your window’s lifetime but it does offer an option for the long term and is easy to remove in the event that you want to open the window.

Another popular DIY solution to stop drafts is to use cling wrap that is rolled up and pushed into all the gaps around your window. This is an effective draught stopper, but the drawback is that it can hinder sash movement completely and pose risky for fire. Furthermore the sash will have to be removed to open the window doctor again and the cling film has to be applied each time you close the sash.

As part of a comprehensive overhaul you can have your sash window professionally draught-proofed. This can include the installation of new sash strings staff beads and parting beads as well as the lubrication and rebalancing of the weights, as well as the lubrication and rebalancing the pulley wheel. It could also involve staining or painting of the frames and the sashes. This could restore the sash to its original function and increase its energy efficiency and correct any minor defects in the wood. It’s much less disruptive than replacing the windows altogether and will significantly reduce drafts and enhance your home’s thermal performance.

Decay

If your windows with sash have suffered decay or damage, the good news is they aren’t necessarily unfixable. The timber used in the frames of these windows is usually of a very high quality and, with the right restoration, can be restored to provide the best performance for many years. Regular inspections are essential and so is making sure the wood is properly ventilated. This will stop the build-up of moisture that could lead to wood decay.

The majority of issues that arise with sash window are easily evident, but some are more difficult to detect. Wood decay is difficult to repair, since fungus eats the wood. It is possible to repair rotten sections of timber, however the best way to prevent future decay is to ensure the wood is kept dry.

First, remove any paint from the hardware. The bottom rail and the connecting rail might have to be removed from the frame (depending on the position of your sash). The “pocket covers”, which are small pieces of wood that are placed on the frame’s side, which permit access to the weights, will need to be removed. They can be fixed by nailing them in place and then securing them with paint, so you’ll likely require a knife to cut them loose. Once the pockets are removed, you can begin cutting out any wood rot and apply a high-quality, water-resistant filler. Once the filler is dry, a coat of primer should be applied to prevent further decay.

It is recommended to inspect the sash’s weights inside the window too to make sure they are properly balanced and not misaligned or pulling one side more than the other. The sash could slide off the track if they aren’t properly balanced. This could cause the frame to crack or be damaged. You can replace the sashweights using new ones, or install a new balancing system to stop the sash from swinging in the wrong direction.

Poor Security

Sash windows are vulnerable to wear and damage from weather and wear over time. This can cause decay of timber, which requires replacement. Water marks on the window or a frame that is soft could be a sign of decaying wood. It is essential to speak with an expert to evaluate the situation and determine if any repairs to the window sash are needed.

Additionally, with time, the bottom rails can be damaged. This can be seen by the presence of water marks on the sill, or the window becoming soft to touch. A professional consultation will also be required to determine the situation and recommend any repair or replacement of window sash components.

It can be a real concern when triple or double glazed windows start to let noise pollution back into the home. If this is happening, the structural integrity of the windows’ sash could be at risk, and they will most likely require to be replaced with an alternative option.

A common problem with repairing sash windows is when the sash gets stuck in the frame. This can be caused by a snapped sash cord, or it could be a sign of an issue with the sash’s the ratchets. If the issue is with the sash rats, a bit of gentle persuasion will usually work.

The sash should be removed from the frame and clearing the tracks of any dirt or dust can assist in resolving this issue. Once the tracks are clean, removing any security fittings that may be present. Lastly, carefully taking off the sash cords and chains will allow the sash to be removed. The staff bead can be sealed with a draught-proof seal that will reduce draughts. This will also improve the paint finish. The gap between the box and the sash can then be filled with decorators caulk to enhance the operation of the sash and decrease the risk of draughts.
