Why would a sash window require repair?
If you live in London and looking for Sash windows repair and replacement company near you then you are in right place. As you know sash windows are constructed from several different pieces of timber. Any one of these sections could become decayed and would require repair or sectional replacement. Leaving these sections unresolved could cause long term decay to surrounding sections and lead to a situation where replacement of the entire window is the most economical solution. At APT we believe that replacement of a original window is the last option. Therefore, we’ve created cost effective ways to repair or replace decayed sections by combining modern technology with good old carpentry skills. Our aim with these repairs are to ensure that the problem is resolved permanently and thus provide the sash window owner with a long term solution, rather than a short term fix.
