Full Box Replacement

A Full Box Replacement is our most complete sash window replacement in which the entire window, including the box frame, is replaced. This is in contrast to the ‘sash replacement‘ service in which just the sliding sashes are replaced, or the repair services like draught proofing.

Full Rundown of the Full Box Replacement Service:

  • Remove & dispose of existing joinery.
  • Supply & fit new joinery.
  • New lead weights or spiral balance springs (where applicable) to be supplied & fitted.

If the products are within the brickwork and not behind rebated brickwork, we will need to do a silicon seal as a pointing joint will not work in this circumstance.
