Retain the original character
and style of your property
We restore, repair, draught proof and double glaze your original sash windows & casement windows adding value and security to your home and saving you money on your bills.
Re Stor Midlands can double glaze your existing timber windows without the costly expense and disruption of replacing the whole sash box and frames. Using a slimlite double glazed unit we are able to fit this into the existing frame which means the original look of the window is retained. By doing so the home owner gains all the thermal and sound benefits without compromising the charm, character or value of your property.
The draught proofing system is fully incorporated within the components of the window itself. It is fitted sympathetically by use of timber beadings which are routed to incorporate the carrier and weather shield pile. The carrier holds the brush pile firmly in place to form a barrier against detrimental weather conditions but does not compromise the window’s function. When the window is closed the system is virtually invisible.
Repair and Refurbishment
Where timber decay has affected the window frame, this can be repaired with our specialist timber resin repair system.
Typical problems affecting timber windows are caused by lack of maintenance and general wear and tear. Full operational condition will be restored after our experienced technicians overhaul, repair and adjust the window.

The Sash Windows, with their subtle proportions and elegance, were one of the most important visual elements in buildings of the 18th and 19th Centuries.
By Victorian times, they were the most popular form of window. In the past fifty or so years, however, their popularity declined.
But with the growth of a more enlightened attitude towards conservation and growing appreciation of the craftsmanship and design that went into everyday buildings of the 18th and 19th Centuries, sash windows once more enjoy a revival.
