Window care for winter


As we move into winter, many properties can start to suffer from problems with windows. Cold, damp weather can create problems with window frames if the paint is cracked or becoming porous – and rot thrives in the wood as soon as it starts to get a foothold.

Repairing window frames will cost about a tenth as much as replacing them, so it pays to check if there is a potential problem. If the joinery is affected by rot it is normally only in small areas around the bottom corners of the frames, so it makes sense just to repair these vulnerable areas.

We’re more than happy to come and have a look if you think you might have a problem. We use the Repair Care International system – they are the acknowledged leader in repairs for historic buildings, local authority housing and schools, and our customers have always been very happy with the results.

The system includes a flexible seal to protect against future water ingress, which keeps the wood more stable and provides the best base for the paint covering.

The advantages:
No need to replace joinery
Reduced maintenance costs
Protects against future decay
Minimal disruption
Ideal for heritage properties
Use on windows, doors, porches and conservatories

If you’re at all worried about your windows do call us, we’ll be happy to give you our best advice.

With best regards
