If you keep the paintwork on your sash and case windows in good order, your windows will stand the test of time. There are still plenty of the original Georgian, Victorian and Edwardian sash windows in good working order today.
Good painting is all about the preparation work.
We spend a lot of time getting the windows up to a first class finish, than simply adding yet another layer of paint over the top of the old one.
Hand painting your windows after installation is a better job than prefinished windows as the paint should always overlap the glass slightly to ensure a seal between the timber and the glass
Our painters will not be the quickest or the cheapest, but if the quality of the job matters to you, you can be sure our team will always leave a first class paint job.
