Wood Window and Sash Restoration

We have provided wood window sash repair and restoration for many years and get a lot of requests to evaluate old wood windows for customer in historical districts.  Since these historical districts require that the original wood windows stay intact and cannot be replaced with new windows, repair and restoration of the windows is imperative.

Before we started offering this service, we did extensive research into the techniques and products necessary to accomplish this task and found that these type of repairs take extensive trade skills and know how, and only highest skilled and experienced craftsmen can accomplish this task.

That is why we only send our best crews to remove damaged sashes and have contracted with one of the oldest sash and window woodworking craftsmen in Houston to accomplish our wood window sash repair and restoration.

The process is very straight forward and requires the evaluation of the sashes and, if damaged or rotten, the removal of the window sashes and repair by our woodworking craftsmen.

The repair/restoration takes about 3 weeks to complete and once repairs are accomplished, the sashes are primed and painted prior to re-installation and then reinstalled into the original frame.

While the sashes are out of the frame, we request that our customer also replace the rope cord of their old rope cord counter balance system and install weather stripping.  We utilize the ART Easy Stop weather stripping system.

If you have any questions please email us at sales@onecallhomehandyman.com or go to our site at http://www.onecallhomehandyman.com/woodwindow.html for more information.  You can also contact us by phone at (832) 800-4441.
