Oh, ever so.... but I have made sash windows, as you probably know
they're quite easy to do. Also, any reasonable joinery should be
able to make new double glazed draughtproof quality windows up for
you - I'm surprised to see so many old ones pulled out and replaced
with very unsightly PVC windows whose longevity is very doubtful
(usually poorly fitted on the outer wall in many cases, giving
rise to mucho cracking on the internal walls too). I wonder what
the cost difference would be?
IMHO, the main problem is the wood that's used these days - unless you pay
After altering my kitchen I fitted a new wood Magnet window - just a
plain large window with one opening casement. And despite it being made of
pressure treated timber and me keeping it painted, both the sill and the
top part were rotten within about 15 years. All my sash windows are
original Victorian - although some may have had repairs.
