Steel Window Restoration
Fabco Sanctuary is a leading specialist in the restoration of metal windows. From the 15th century to the 20th, in any metal and any style, we have restored tens of thousands of metal windows across the UK.
As an experienced contractor for such bodies as English Heritage and Historic Royal Palaces we have been entrusted with some of the most historically sensitive buildings in the country. This experience is also available to private individuals in need of seasoned craftsmen for their own properties.
Metal Window Frame Restoration Service
Skilled window restoration will significantly expand the lifespan of a metal window.
Where regulations allow it is possible to upgrade windows, meeting more modern expectations of insulation and usability whilst maintaining the original windows authenticity.
We handle the entire process with the minimum disruption, from removal to reinstallation. We also offer a full replica replacement manufacturing service.
Repair or Restore?
Several companies offer a ‘refurbishment’ service, repairing steel windows without removing them. Clearly this is cheaper and in the short term will deal with the small problems. However, it is impossible to restore and enhance a window properly without removal and specialised factory work. Just as painting over decayed wood will only hide the problem temporarily, on-site refurbishment is a short-term solution that costs more in the long run.
We provide a full and authentic steel window restoration service, incorporating modern advances which leave your windows better than when they were new. Whilst the work is undertaken the building is fully glazed so life continues as normal. We then undertake comprehensive work with the following objectives:
- To ensure the lifespan of the window is considerably extended
- The operation of the window is restored to modern day expectations
- Where possible a modern weather seal is incorporated into the window so that draught-proofing and insulation are greatly improved
- The historic integrity or originality is maintained
- The aesthetics or the visual impact is protected
- The window is protected against future corrosion
- To greatly reduce the required future maintenance
