Renovate and Sash Replacement with acoustic


  • We have had our sash windows restored and double glazed by Sashcraft. Our experience with Sashcraft was top notch from start to finish. Liam's advice was both helpful and considered, taking into account aesthetic, durability and cost considerations. The finished product looks excellent, and has had a significant impact on reducing noise and improving insulation in our house, while retaining its period style. Liam's team were very considerate and friendly, but, most importantly, clearly took pride in their work and had the attention to detail of real craftsmen. All in all the service they provided was of the highest quality and we would recommend them to anyone.

The owners of this Edwardian home on a busy road wanted our Renovate and Sash Replacement Service to benefit from double glazing. As the road is a major route into Cambridge, we sourced a 6.8 laminate glass for for the external face that offered an additional sound reduction of 6 decibels.

The work
  • We provided double-glazed replacement hardwood sashes for the sliding-sash windows, housing a conservation-approved double-glazed unit with laminate glass
  • The boxes and sills were repaired and sections replaced where necessary
  • A memory-foam seal was routed into the perimeter of the sashes and across the mid rail for draught- and noise-proofing
  • We decorated all the windows, which we fitted with heritage lockable fitches and sash lifts to complete the upgrade
