Sash window repairs are often necessary due to dry or wet wood rot and are usually found in the lower section of the box frame. Our professional joiners can remove and repair even the most severely damaged windows.
New wood can be added into areas that require replacement when deterioration has become too excessive to repair. The repair will be made to match the style of your existing sash windows.
Most old sash windows are made from highly durable timber. So it makes sense to repair and keep the original wood as much as possible.
There are several ways to decide whether you should have a professional assess your sash windows for repair. By looking at your windows, you can see if the paint has deteriorated, or if there is existing water damage in the joints. A visual inspection can also give you clues to underlying wood rot if you notice any discolouration in the paint. Most of the time, rot is found in the joints, sills, top and bottom rails.
If after taking your own visual assessment of your windows you would like to have a professional make an visit, you can contact us at SM Sashes. We can guide you in a further inspection and provide detail on what areas are in most need of repair. Sash window repair recommendations will be made based on our findings and a cost estimate will also be provided.
Upon completion of your sash window repair, you will be provided with tips and recommendations for maintenance of your sash windows to minimise wear and ensure that further repair won’t be necessary for many years to come.

What our clients say
SM Sashes recently completely renovated my very old sash windows. The windows rattled and were draughty. I’d made small wooden pegs and had them wedged to stop the rattling but that didn’t stop the draught!! They’ve now been completely refurbished and draught proofed! Will did a brilliant job, including renewing the sills which were old & rotten. In my opinion the cost of this work was very competitive and I’d definitely recommend to others - in fact I’ve already given their number to friends. Overall a very impressive job.
Smooth Movement Sashes work for us as and when required. They always do a very good job. I've never experienced any problems with them and their work is very good. They always arrive on time and stick to the promised deadlines. Customers are always satisfied with windows they've done.

SMS replaced all our windows in our 1896 Victorian house. A few years ago we had all windows replaced by someone else and they were just awful. We hired SMS to replace them and it was the best job ever. They replaced 16 sash windows and one very large kitchen window, all with wooden frames. The work done was to the highest imaginable standard. I am really very, very impressed with SMS's work. The work they did was brilliant!
They worked for us last year renovating our sash windows. They were easy to deal with, trustworthy and friendly. The work over all was good. I would use them again.
Smooth Movement Sashes recently carried out some draught proofing work on our cottage. The team were very professional. All the work was done efficiently and quickly saving us time and money.
SMS mended a sash cord and replaced a broken pane of glass of a victorian sash window to a good standard. They were quick, efficient, friendly and trustworthy. They mainly cleaned up after themselves and any bits left (old paint/wood chips which had to be scraped off the window in order to prime it) were easily hoovered. We would use them again or recommend them.
