Window Frame Repair
Even high-quality wood window frames rot over time, so the question is: Repair or replace?
When a wooden window or sash frame has been affected by rot this is often a dilemma.
In many cases, these windows were installed decades ago with much of their deterioration resulting directly from a lack of maintenance. But the fact is, rotted wood can be repaired to look like new with easy-to-use epoxy fillers designed for wood window restoration
Sanding back and repairing old wood windows is made easier with the right tools
Sanders have become a key part of the window frame repairer’s tool kit and when you are dealing with many frames that is where you need a high-speed sander.
Paint must be taken off to bring the wood back to its original state, decayed wood cut out and replaced with a two-part epoxy resin and sanded
The pre-painting process to achieve a high standard, resin application apart, is down to your finishing tool …the faster it spins, the lower the vibration and the smoother the surface you get. Which is why the sanding tool is everything – and why the electric sander known as UWC 20R is a great choice.
And because Grinding Solutions buys the UWC 20R in large volume we always ensure that we can supply this 500W lightweight at the fairest price – check our prices out by calling 07909 993832.
