Wood Casement Window Repair

Anatomy of an 'out-swing' casement window

Anatomy of a double hung window

Traditional casement windows may require:

  • Re-fitting of window sashes to window frames allowing room for painting.
  • Re-installment or tightening of parliament hinges or door hinges. Lubrication of hinges for smooth operation.
  • Reinforcement of all loose joints in the sashes. Caulking is needed to keep the joints from deteriorating any further. Epoxy restoration may be needed for badly rotted joints.
  • Installation of external copper material (both vertical and horizontal if necessary) to help divert water from entering the house.
  • Opening of weep holes to allow water to properly drain from window frames and sills.
  • Installation or replacement of weather-stripping (as needed). This will also increase energy efficiency and make the window much quieter.
  • If the sashes are irreparable because of dry rot or termite damage, replication and installation of new sashes which will identically match the old sashes and keep the look of the house consistent.

Your team did a great job, when they repaired 70 original, double hung windows in my historical home built in 1930. They were well trained, professional and quick.
