Wood Rot & Window Repair in Melbourne

Here are examples of successful window restorations. They are successful because the client saves money, minimized future maintenance, retained architectural authenticity, and even helped protect the environment.

It’s common to see extensive rot damage to the sills and sashes of bay windows. This example is part of an Edwardian house, so as part of the restoration process we cut out the rot, reinstated the timber and brought the window back to its former glory.

We see many modern style garden windows with extensive sill damage. In this example, the sill had almost totally rotted away and was allowing rainwater into the room. We replaced and re-jointed it, creating a solution that was water proof on the inside and attractive from the outside.

This is a ground floor, paved patio window frame overlooking Brighton Bay. As the window was so large, it would have been very expensive to replace. Instead, we restored the timber framing to deliver a much more economic solution.

This project is the rear entrance of one of Camberwell’s best-known heritage listed mansions. Rot had severely affected the bottom of its doors, as well as the lower timbers on either side. As its beautiful formal gardens are often open to the public, it was vital we achieve a solution that retained the original detail.

Before

These elegant Victorian period windows are prohibitively expensive to replace, particularly with their arched tops. We were able to restore both of them with a seamless look in keeping with their character.

Before

Rot had completely destroyed the windowsill of this corner window, but it was still more viable to restore it instead of replacing it. To their great surprise, we didn’t even disturb their camellias!

Before

After

With its glass ceiling, this atrium-style window had badly deteriorated and required substantial timber replacement. While restoring it we also redesigned the sashes to eliminate the design faults that had helped cause the problem in the first place.
