Maintaining and Re-painting Exterior Sash Windows


Sash windows are a beautiful addition to any home, offering historic charm and modern elegance. However, at Super Sash Windows, we understand that the sashes need continuous care – from regular maintenance to re-painting – to keep them in pristine condition.

In this blog post, we’ll look at tips for maintaining and re-painting exterior sash windows so you can ensure they stay in tip-top shape.

Maintaining Your Sashes

Regularly cleaning your sashes is the best way to maintain them correctly over time. This includes regularly wiping down the window frames with warm soapy water and lubricating mechanisms every few months. It’s also recommended that you seal off any gaps between window frames using caulk or similar materials like putty or silicone sealant as needed.

Repainting Your Sashes

Eventually, it may be necessary to re-paint your sashes if they become discoloured due to wear and tear or weathering over time. Preparing for painting is one of the most critical steps when protecting against wood rot β€” wires should be draped across boxes gently as supported scaffolding may cause too much pressure on weakened frames – it only takes a few minutes. Still, it will ensure the paint job lasts longer than usual! Before you begin painting, apply a primer coat followed by an even layer of oil-based paints. These tend to have better durability since their higher viscosity creates smoother finishes when dry compared to other types of paints, such as acrylics.
