Galloway Building and Restoration specialises in the refurbishment and replacement of traditional timber sash and case and casement windows throughout Dumfries and Galloway, Edinburgh, the Borders, Carlisle and the Lake District.
A sash and case window is two timber-framed sashes held inside a timber box casement, moving vertically by a system of pulleys and weights. We operate traditional methods, using the traditional pulley and weight system as opposed to spring balances.
Refurbishment (where we take your existing sash and case window and give it new life) consists of:
We use similar methods for double glazed upgrades; however, we install a complete replica sash from your original with double glazed glass units installed into your existing casement, thus keeping the feel of the original building while simultaneously ensuring a highly efficient heat retention unit.
We look at all the original features of your window including horns, astragals and profile and then manufacture the exact replica in either double or single glazed glass.
