The main problem was that the windows had quite a lot of rot in all the sills and bottom rails. Mrs S had several local companies in to quote on the windows and all of them were of the opinion that the windows needed to be replaced. Mrs S wanted to prevent replacement as the windows were original to the property and part of the listing.
We surveyed the windows and determined that the windows could be repaired and restored. We resolved Mrs S’s window issues by raking out or stripping off all superfluous putty and paint. Once this was done we replaced the putty with Dryseal 10 year warranty putty. We repaired or replaced the rotten sections in the windows by utilising the repair care system or making replacement parts in our joinery. We then fully decorated the windows and frames with the Dulux Weathershield System.
The result was that Mrs S’s windows were fully re-puttied, repaired and decorated. Every issue that could affect the longevity of her original windows was resolved. The fact that we could keep the original windows safe from replacement was very rewarding and Mrs S was extremely relieved that we could provide her with this alternative.
