If your double hung sash windows are in less than ideal working order then our Recondition & Draught Seal service will restore your windows to their former functionality with the added benefits of high performance, concealed weather seals.

This is our core service and either stands alone or forms the foundation for more advanced renovations to build upon. It provides a full recondition of the whole sash window not only restoring full and proper functionality but also includes the installation of our high performance, concealed weather seals. These low friction weather seals reduce the ingress of airborne noise, dust, draughts and other pollutants into your home .

At Sash Window Specialist we understand the charm of traditional wooden windows which is why all of our work is designed to be as sympathetic as possible. Our weather seals are machined into the timber components to become an integral, practically invisible part of the window. This system has been proven in Europe for many years, at Sash Window Specialist we are pleased to be the first to offer all of its benifits to the Australian market.

sash window security bolts


With rising crime rates security locks should be fitted to all external windows and doors. Various catches effectively bring the sashes into a locked position, however the screws holding these in place are small and these catches should not be considered an effective security measure.
