Metal windows can suffer from various problems including surface rust, distortion, excessive build-up of paint and/or debris, and failed hinges and fittings. Whilst they may look like they’re beyond repair, in most instances this is not actually the case.
With this in mind we have shaped out restoration systems around current Historic England and SBAB guidance, whilst also introducing the latest technology, and cutting edge equipment to develop out specialist methods to deliver the highest quality refurbishments, increasing Steel Frame lifespan while still retaining historical features and architectural interest.
The in-situ refurbishment is the onsite process of refurbishing the windows, and we are one of the only companies in the UK able to carry out this process. We are proud to be able to say Heritage England have also inspected and approved our methods.
With our unique skills and knowledge we have formulated a new revolutionary system for restoring historic metal windows in-situ. This includes dust free sand blasting to eliminate all visible corrosion, nylon abrasion to remove excess paint coats and smooth frames, fenestration and frame detailing and brass fittings restoration. We then hand apply C5 environment marine grade resin coats of primer and undercoat and a polyurethane topcoat to finish. English Heritage have inspected and approved our in-situ system.
