What is sash window repair and restoration and what will I learn?
If you’re based in London then this training opportunity is ideal for you. You will be given a schedule which will involve learning all the basics of sash window repair, restoration, draught proofing, and decoration. Here’s a little look at each of the skills you’ll be exposed with.
Sash window repair

The exact training will depend on the site work that is required, but at some point you’ll cover all of the points mentioned.
Sash window draught proofing
Draught proofing is important to London on a scale we wouldn’t understand. If every single home in London had their windows draught proofed the amount of heat saved would be phenomenal. Not only are we making heat to keep our home warm, we are burning fossil fuels to do so. Draught proofing removes the need to worry about this and can actually save around £25 a year in heating. Since the draught proofing will last well for about ten years it’s fairly likely the client will get a full payback before the end of the product lifespan. You’ll learn how to draught proof a a sash window and install draught seals to original sash windows.
