Leaking Stopcock Repair or Replacement

Leaking Stopcock Repair or Replacement

Replacing leaking or faulty stopcocks often means having to freeze the incoming water supply in order to stop the water flow.

With our professional pipe freezing equipment Silver Saints can safely and efficiently maintain or replace faulty stopcocks or service valves.

The process of freezing the incoming supply normally takes 30 – 40 minutes. Once the water flow has stopped we can begin the work. The pipe freezing equipment keeps the water supply frozen for as long as the work takes. Only once all the work has safely been completed the water flow will be restored.

If you have a leaking stopcock or would like a new or replacement stop cock fitted to your property give us a call on 02070 999 199, email or book online.

Sash Window and French Door Renovation

Sash Window and French Door Restoration

Our Silver Saints handymen change sash cords and draught proof sash windows and French Doors on a daily basis. But if your windows need a bit more attention we also offer a full renovation service.

Using the latest technology in wood restoration products Silver Saints can give your windows back their structural integrity and return them to the features they once were.

The restoration process is as follows:

1. We strip back any flaking paint and cut away any unsound or rotten wood.

2. Treat the sound wood to prevent further decay

3. Rebuild the window using new timber and a flexible wood compound.

4. Redecorate the window.

The end result is a structurally sound and newly decorated window at the fraction of the cost of replacement windows.

The optional extras which are offered with our window renovation service are:

- Application of our full draught proofing system
- Replace sash cords and rebalance windows
- Supply and fit new pulleys, catches and locks


A replacement sash window typically cost £2000-£4000. Renovating rather than replacing your current windows will cost hundreds rather than thousands of pounds per window.

For an initial fee of £35+VAT we will carry out a full survey and estimate visit to inspect the work that is required to bring your windows back to life. We will then issue you with a detailed quote including a number of optional extras for you to choose from. If you proceed with the work we will deduct the survey fee off the final cost.

To arrange a survey and estimate visit call our Operations Team on 0207 0999 199, send an email to or book online.
