Window Care and Repair

Window Care and Repair

Repair or replace? - when a window has been affected by wood decay this is often a dilemma. The Oxford Decorating team are fully trained in window care and repair systems, a cost saving alternative to window replacement. The best paint or wood stain is only as good as the quality of the substrate and the quality of the surface preparation. Failure to specify correctly prior-to-paint has wide financial implications:

  • Premature breakdown of exterior wood finishes leaves wood unprotected resulting in wood decay
  • Using linseed oil putty can contribute to early break down of the finish
  • Using traditional timber repair methods also contribute to early break down of repairs and subsequently break down of protective coating

WindowCare is a market leader in solutions for sustainable timber restoration and maintenance and Oxford Decorating staff are fully trained in using this product in order to provide a permanent solution for repairing decayed and rotten wood. The process begins with removal of rotten and damaged wood, and then a pre-treatment of Dry Fix 3 is applied to stabilise the surface ready for the repair compound. This is dispensed onto a mixing board, via the Easy-Q gun, then when ready it is applied to the damaged area. When cured (approximately 3 Hours) it can be lightly sanded, shaped and then painted over. The results are a repair that is stronger than the wood itself and once painted, cannot be distinguished from the original timber.
