Something we see all too often; the windows had been painted shut, we were called in to restore the windows back to their original functionality http://bit.ly/2p84Uik

Your sash windows were built to last. We have seen it happen all too many times: people replacing their original sash windows with softwood or PVC alternatives, only to find that they do not last and it takes away the character of the building. Restoring you sash windows back to their original splendour is by far the best way to ensure they live to see another century http://bit.ly/2pmgAMR

At Fortis & Hooke we believe that replacement of sashes should be your last option. However, in some occasions the original sashes have fallen into such a state of disrepair that repair is impossible. We also occasionally encounter period homes where the original windows have already been replaced with sashes of poor quality, or not in line with the era of the property.In these cases we offer our bespoke replacement service of high quality in line with age and distinction of their homes.

At Fortis & Hooke we prefer not to replace original sashes and therefore our replacement service is only offered when absolutely necessary. We replicate any design allowing our clients to retain the original architectural feel of their homes

In this case study, we look at a grade 2 listed building in Tunbridge Wells, we rendered our replacement service for a window which didn't meet the aesthetics of the building.

In this case study, we discuss a project which saw us conduct restoration works on a grade 2 listed building in Peckham. Our restoration overhaul left the windows looking superb and functioning properly.

Bay windows can be installed with the utmost confidence into new build homes. At Fortis & Hooke we, however, suggest that original bay windows are retained rather than replaced.

Our sash window draught sealing system is aptly named the Fortis DS Perimeter Sealing System. This system is fully tested, practically flawless in execution and it’s arguably the most effective system on the market to draught seal sash windows
