Draught Proofing Sash Windows
Silver Saints London Handyman Service offers an effective, great value sash window draught proofing service.
The procedure we follow is to remove the lower sash, replace the two existing parting beads with ones that contain a draught proofing pile. We fit draught proofing rubber strip on the top face of the upper sash rail where it meets the head jam and another strip on the bottom face of the lower sash rail where it meets the window sill. We then use a router to cut an 8mm channel into the meeting rail of the bottom sash and insert another pile type draught sealing strip. The window is then reassembled rattle and draught free.
The cost to draught proof a sash window is £90+VAT, inclusive of both labour and materials.
