Draught Proofing

Draught Proofing

windows draft proofingWe try our best to fit in a Draught Proofing System, in the windows colour (if it is possible) so there is little change in the appearance.

Window Draught Proofing System, what we offer:

seals gaps and eliminates draughts through window perimeters;
stops window rattle due to poor fitting sashes;
improves sound proofing of windows;
neat and professional appearance;
minimal disruption to the decorative appearance of the window.

Process of Draught Proofing Explained

To prepare the windows, old paint may be burnt off to create the best possible start to put in the draught proofing and easily used after fixing.

Once the lower pane has been removed, we will cut a shallow slot in the back face of the meeting rail (where it closes against the upper sash) and put in a Teflon seal.

It is also necessary for us to remove the lower pane of the window to allow removal of the two parting beads and replacement with new parting beads which contain their own integral Teflon seals. The last stage of draught proofing is the fitting of compressible rubber seals/ Teflon to the top and bottom rails. The whole window is then reassembled – complete with new sash cords if needed.

Doors

Draught proofing significantly reduces heat loss.
These four main areas where Draught proofing can be carried out are:

  • A crevice beneath the door.
  • The keyhole and around the lock (French doors).
  • The letterbox.
  • Slight gaps around the contours of the door.

Inside doors should only need draught proofing if they lead to a room you don not normally heat such as your spare room or kitchen. Doors may also need draught proofing to eliminate noise.
