Sash window decorating is our company's area of expertise.

Decorating a sash window is an art that not any decorator "off the street" can master. It requires a particular knowledge of the inner functions and mechanisms of a sash window and a precise, steady hand in order to prevent certain common problems that can arise such as:

  • restricted movement on sashes;

  • sashes that are painted shut;

  • brush pile of draught sealing is painted, making the seal ineffective; and

  • paint and scratches on the glass.

We are contacted daily to address such problems caused by normal decorators or local handymen.

Our decorators have received detailed training on decorating sash windows and it forms part of their routine on a daily basis. They are skilled artisans in the decoration of these traditional windows and they take great pride in producing a refinished window without affecting its functionality.

In order to ensure a good quality finish and longer lasting results we only use the best products on the market providing you with peace of mind that your windows' new appearance would last for many years to come.

We also paint all surrounding concrete window surrounds window cills, facia boards,doors or render if required
