A Quick Guide to Window Restoration

window 2Windows are often quick to be neglected as they can be taken for granted as they are part and parcel of a home.

Windows provide light and a view to your home. Keeping your windows in check will mean better energy bills and a sense of calm when you can shut and open windows easily for ventilation and know they are safe to use.

Regular window and gutter cleaning may help to prolong your windows and keep them looking good but beware of the hidden problems your windows might have so that you don’t end up with costly replacement and damage to the rest of your home.

Did you know that many window designs are only built to last between 15 to 20 years with vinyl lasting much longer? So, if you have period features or are moving into a home which is not a new build, this is something to research.window 6

Before attempting to do any DIY work yourself, do research when your windows were built as lots were built as late as the 1960s using lead paint, which is a risk if inhaled or ingested.

Often at ZGreen Restoration the kind of window problems we see are rot and mold around the windowpane, which are easy to restore and save your window.

Flaking paint and windows that won’t shut properly are designs of rotting in timber windows. You can cut out pieces of rot, fill with putty and then paint again, but in cases where the area is quite large or you are not sure if it is rot, it’s best to call the experts like us in for a free quote.

If rain or water enters your window gaps or if you start to get foggy windows, then you simply need to draught proof your windows with internal glazing and seal up any gaps with silicone.
