What is a window sash? Consisting of one or more moveable panels, a window sash secures the panes of glass in place. A sash can also be used to separate panes, also called lights, by using glazing bars.
How does a sash break? When wood is not repainted regularly, it can become exposed to moisture, which causes wooden rails and stiles to rot. Rotting can also occur if water penetrates the exterior cladding, due to heavy spills, flooding, etc.
What should I do? A window sash can easily be replaced. After taking precise measurements, we will create custom rails and stiles out of quality, solid wood materials. Once we replace the rotting wood with the new, custom-designed sash, the original look of the window will be restored.
