The Inherent Problem

The traditional sash window and the Yorkshire window, form an important part of period building architecture, and of our heritage. It is vital that they are preserved. Well-seasoned timbers were used in the manufacture of the windows, and if properly maintained, and skillfully refurbished the sash window will outlast any modern window.
The sash window is a very efficient window for air distribution, while keeping out the elements. The design, with its gaps between the moving sashes, did not consider the modern need for energy conservation.

The gaps give problems by allowing draught, noise and dust to penetrate. Sashes rattling in the wind, generally result in inappropriately sealed and painted up windows. Replacement of old glass with modern glass affects both the balance and aesthetics of the sashes. Poor painting maintenance, allows the sills and sash timbers to be affected by the elements, and the resulting rot leads to unsuitable replacements.

Distinctive period buildings and Victorian terraces are spoiled by the installation of expensive period replications, or modern upvc windows.

The Modern Cure

MH Joinery Services offer an alternative approach in the form of a complete restoration package. From the complete servicing of a window, to restore it to its original working condition. To the installation of a proprietary weather proofing system, fitted into the rebates of the window, making it unobtrusive and not detracting from the original appearance of the window.

The MH Joinery service starts with a site survey of each window in order for us to establish its state of repair. This is followed by a detailed quotation including a report and schedule of work. Upon receipt of an order, MH Joinery Services Ltd will liaise with the occupier and agree a sequence of working to minimise disruption during the installation process. Wherever possible all work is carried out at the property and from within the building, this minimises the need for external access. All windows are left secure on completion of each days' work.
