Period Sash Window Restoration, Replacement & Repairs in Melbourne, Victoria

At Barnsbury Joinery Melbourne we provide a comprehensive restoration service in period casements and double-hung sash windows across Melbourne, Victoria. With the support of our joinery and glazing workshops in Melbourne, we are equipped to manufacture any necessary components to rebuild your sash windows to their original detailing.

Problems commonly encountered include water ingress, decayed or painted shut components, rotting sills (particularly on south and west elevations), draughts and damaged glass. These sash windows have often been neglected for long periods, and show signs of poor quality repair in the past, with filler being applied directly to damp and decayed timber, then painted over.

As standard, we will quote for refurbishment, in-depth repair and draught seals. These go a long way to bringing a single glazed window to proper functionality and if carefully painted, should give many more years of service. At Barnsbury Joinery we provide the following sash restoration service across Melbourne:

  • Remove beading and carefully remove top and bottom sashes​

  • Assess condition of sill, box frame and external pointing

  • Re-balance sash weights to ensure smooth operation of both top and bottom sashes

  • Assess condition of top and bottom sash 

  • Renovate top and bottom sashes, place off excess paint and repairing putty damage where needed

  • Replace old pulleys with modern brass pulleys incorporating a sealed ball bearing unit, resulting in smooth and positive action in operation.

  • Install concealed draught proofing system 

  • Undercoat all exposed woodwork and caulk beading leaving the window ready for the decorator 

  • Fit new centre catch, sash-lifts and window locks as directed by the customer

  • Full painting service available
