Basic Sash Box Replacement

What is a ‘basic sash box replacement’ service?

The basic sash box replacement service is designed for when you are working with other trades and don’t need us to do a fully comprehensive service. Essentially we do a slimmed-down service in order to allow other contractors to complete the making good of the plasterwork, the painting, the pointing, and any other services across the whole property.

What’s the point of having a slimmed down service?

Because our standard service is fully comprehensive and covers all aspects of installation. Occasionally, this clashes with other trades that a customer may have already employed. Essentially, the basic fit allows all your contractors to work without stepping on each others toes, keeping your building works as smooth, hassle free and low-cost as possible. This could save you thousands. If you’re in any doubt as to what exactly we do and don’t do for this service, we’ve detailed everything below. If you would prefer to talk to someone about this service, any of our staff would be happy to assist you between the hours of 8:30am and 5:30pm on weekdays. On average, a basic fit should cost around 30% less than a comprehensive fit.
