Sash cord replacement
Sash Window Repair, Sash Window Restoration
Does your sash window keep sliding down when opened? or is your sash window hard to open? If so, the chances are a sash cord has snapped and the balance weights has fallen down inside the cavity.
Villa windows can replace your sash cords with 100% cotton fibre that will withstand the harsh New Zealand sun and resist deterioration. Most other cords have a synthetic inner that perishes and will only last a few summers.
We also make sure the pulley wheels are operating correctly and repair or replace as necessary.
Sash cord replacement of both upper and lower sash windows is a procedure that takes about 2-4hrs.
It involves the following:
Removal of staff bead.
Removal of lower sash.
Removal of Inner parting bead.
Removal of top sash.
Replacement of synthetic cord to 100% cotton cord.
Checking balance weights and fitting new cord to weight.
Refitting in reverse order.
Checking for correct operation.
