Whilst #KSG carries out replacement works on Victorian, Georgian, and Edwardian period properties of all sizes, our surveyors always advise restoring where possible. We are expert historic window refurbishment contractors, particularly focusing on timber sash and casement windows.
In doing so, we breathe new life into the cities beloved historic buildings and preserve the heritage of the properties.

Manage and minimise risks from traditional window defects
Failure to maintain timber windows can lead to severe structural issues, such as spalling on the exterior sub-sills and water ingress internally. Early remedial action can prevent these problems from escalating and thus save the client from significant repair costs at a later stage.
Kensington Sash can restore your period windows to their original grandeur, keeping your property appearing and performing its best. Without the need for manufacturing lead times, work can be completed in a timely manner. Restoration work does not require planning permission, which is ideal for homes that are either listed or located in conservation areas.
Do your sash windows need repairing?
Sash windows are beautiful period features and add great character to a property. We often find that many of them are old, neglected, and in dire need of an upgrade. If you're questioning sash window repair, please check for the following issues to help determine if it would be wise to proceed with restoring your windows:
Draughts and cold spots
Rotting timber (important to check sill areas)
Windows that are difficult to open and close
Damage to/loose fitting locks
Broken sash cords
Cracked glass and condensation
