I've just had a guy called Zhivko Kovachev in to repair two original Victorian sash windows that had been neglected for many years. He did an amazing job stripping them back to the wood, repairing them, sorting out the sashes, adding draft proofing, replacing cracked glass etc and repainting. He's extremely conscientious, hard-working, trustworthy and friendly (not to mention reasonably-priced). I can't recommend him highly enough.
Contact him via woodrenovate@gmail.com or 07897 308069

Yes indeed "Woodworker" Crown joinery its above standards. high skills and finish are fabulous. We had work done with them.
Cant see how repairing sash windows as i read on this forum it worth doing, as in couple of months they start to crack again on the joints, best option its always make them new and in hardwood if possible. Are the great "refurbishment" guys be back to repair them again when they start open cracks? What is it the warranty on that kind of repairs? its difficult to believe in some posts about repairing windows or doors!

Hi, it depends on your location. I mean there are a lot of them, but they cannot come to your house. Why would you like to change them? I mean you can repair it. Old windows always look good if you take care of them. I moved into an old house and wanted to repair it but at the same time to keep the old style. So I just called some experts in tempered glass scratch removal. They came and repaired my windows' glasses, 'cause they had some deep scratches and even were cracked. After that, they gave me some tips on what to buy for keeping the wood of them and this is. I have very beautiful windows.

Admin, note the payload, the backlink to [www.unscratchthesurface.com] , providers of services from CA to NY. I'd expect others in due course, probably as edits to previous posts from this user id. I'd recommend deletion of the account. Deletion just of posts, two apparently so far, clearly doesn't discourage them.

Anyone interested can see the poster at work elsewhere by searching "stagbucarpruspe forum". Some of the instances here under other names are probably them too.
