Restoring sash windows and shutters on period homes

Over the years we have worked on restoring sash windows and shutters on many period houses. At some stage people go for a complete redo/restoration of shutters, windows and woodwork.

How we restore sash windows and shutters on period homes

Generally, there will be over a hundred years of old paint on the woodwork so we tend to strip off as much old paint as possible. This leaves a sound surface to prime and flush fill, making the surface perfect for a finish coat of white, eggshell paint.

We work with some fine carpenters who know sash window restoration very well. They free up the window, re-weight and balance the sash windows, putting in new ropes and draft proofing. It is then finished by the Impressions painting team.

We carefully remove all draft-proofing brush slips so as not to get paint on them, as they become ineffective at stopping drafts when paint gets in the brushes. When the paint is dry we put back in the draft-proofing slips – and you have beautifully restored windows and shutters!
