How To Replace Sash Window Springs In Reading

Sash windows have been a popular choice for houses in the UK for centuries. But with age comes wear and tear, and eventually, some components of the sash window will need replacing.

One of the key components that can wear out over time is the sash window spring. Sash window springs are essential to the smooth operation of the window sashes, and when they fail, the sashes won't stay open or closed, or they may become difficult to move.

In this guide, we'll take a closer look at how to replace sash window springs in Reading, Berkshire. We'll cover everything you need to know, from identifying when your sash window springs need replacing, to sourcing replacement springs, and carrying out the replacement yourself.

  • The sash window won't stay open

How To Replace Sash Window Springs

Replacing sash window springs can be a tricky task, especially if you're not experienced in working with sash windows. However, with the right tools and approach, it's possible to carry out a DIY replacement successfully.

Here's a step-by-step guide to replacing sash window springs in Reading:

Step 1: Remove the Sash from the Frame

The first step in replacing sash window springs is to remove the sash from the frame. Remove any screws or nails holding the sash in place, and carefully remove the sash from the frame.

Step 2: Remove the Old Sash Window Springs

Once you've removed the sash from the frame, you can remove the old sash window springs. This may require removing the window cord if it's attached to the spring.

Step 3: Measure and Order Replacement Springs

Measure the length and thickness of the old sash window springs, and use these measurements to order replacement springs from your supplier.

Step 4: Install the New Springs

Once you've received the replacement springs, it's time to install them. Slot the new springs into place, making sure they're secure and correctly aligned.

Step 5: Reattach the Sash to the Frame

Once you've installed the new sash window springs, you can reattach the sash to the frame. Use screws or nails to attach the sash, and test the window to make sure it opens and closes smoothly.
