Did you have any luck with your repairs. I have a pane I've been meaning to replace. Emailed and rang around after looking on the glass and glazing federation website (www.ggf.co.uk) , and found that AB Glass at 99 Anerley Rd to quote much cheaper than elsewhere. I haven't actually arranged it yet as I'm waiting to get some time off as they only work M-F, would be interested to hear how you went.

I know it's been on here before but I can't find it due to flood control.

So, anyone used a local + good Sash Window fixing company? I just want a free quote for now.

One of my mates is a Carpenter / Joiner and he has just made and fitted a sliding sash window to a flat in Anerley Hill. The flat owner who happens to be my neighbour was more than happy with the finished product. He can also make any addtions / modifications to the design to suit your requirements. He obviously does this and other Joinery works for a living and is quite competitively priced. If you want his number just let us know and I will forward it on to you.

We have just had our sash windows done by Draught Busters who are a Forest Hill based company. See www.draught-busters.co.uk.

We had a couple of quotes and they were reasonable and we are very pleased indeed with the results.

Getting new sash windows isn't cheap though - budget about £1000 per window, could be more of less depending how much needs replacing.

I know someone who works for £110 per day who could do it, and I wouldn't think it would take more than a day. pm me for details if you want.

I am looking for some quote for new double glazed windows or just renovation of current ones, bearing in mind I am in a conservation area so I cannot do PVC.

There are other works that I would do in the spring to renovate the flat so not sure if it is more convenient to do all together and who can do a very good job!!!

Any help?

Hi there. I need to find a good carpenter/glazier who can replace some slatted windows for normal windows. It is not a big job, but looks fiddly !!!

Any reccomendations are appreciated

Without doubt this topic has already been raised, but for the life of me, I cannot find it. Can anyone please recommend a manufactured (preferably local) of wooden sash windows (regulation compliant et al) that can turn something around on a short time frame and is reasonably priced? It's for a kitchen window, a simple four pane, beaded and weighted window. I have a builder (whom I found from a recommendation here) who will put it in for me.

Thanks everyone

We are looking to replace our existing elderly (and not very well maintained) Crittal windows. We don't want replacement aluminium and we don't really want UPVC. We also don't want hours of hard sell from one of the big window companies :(

Has anyone got any recommendations for anyone who can supply and fit wooden framed double-glazed units?

I have looked through other posts in the forum and can't seem to find one on this topic - if I have missed it, please forgive me!

In the early 1990s we had an extension built and the windows were custom designed to fit in with our existing Edwardian leaded lights with stained glass features.

The building company no longer exists but I am pretty sure the window company contractor came from Crystal Palace. Can anyone point to who that may be - especially if they still exist. We need more windows!

I recently moved in to a new flat, and realised that the front sash bay windows are stuck in place...I know they must have worked within the last yr as the previous owner had to get the sofa in through the front windows!

I have spoke to a couple of places who deal with sash windows, but they will only come out to fit new windows / frames.

Does anyone know of someone local who would come out for a small / cheap job such as that? Im 100% sure the windows are fine, no need to replace them, just needs someone who knows what they are doing to free the windows..If i keep trying, i think i will end up accidently wripping the frame off!!!

Many thanks!
