Repairing & Upgrading Traditional Sash Windows

Scotford Sash is a small family business dedicated to restoring, draught proofing and upgrading traditional sliding sash windows.

Based in the historic town of Monmouth Rob Scotford has been working on sash windows for over 21 years throughout South Wales, Gloucestershire, Herefordshire, Bristol & Bath and beyond so your beautiful windows are in safe hands.

Rob will be there from initial enquiry through to final vacuum with no sub contractors used during the process.

Sash Window Specialists

We offer a range of options for your windows always doing our best to use the finest materials as we endeavour to sympathetically and discreetly bring your windows up to 21st century living. The brush pile system fits neatly within the window and offers excellent insulation and noise reduction without altering the windows original appearance. For more major repairs we use Accoya as its qualities are only matched by the original pitch pine that your windows will probably be made from.

We can also offer Accoya double glazed sashes fitted within the original box frame which, along with the brush pile system, provides a great option if planning isn’t an issue.


Traditional sash windows are manufactured from exceptional timber and have stood the test of time so we aim to work with what we have as much as possible. If sections of the window are beyond repair we use Accoya and epoxy resin to replace and repair. Both products will provide a long lasting repair to your windows that complement the windows original beauty.


We take great pride in ensuring your windows are fully functioning by the time we have finished with both sashes gliding effortlessly.


Every window worked on has a discrete brush pile system fitted within it. Not only does this stop those annoying draughts but also reduces outside noise and allowing the sashes to glide beautifully. All this is achieved most importantly without altering the windows appearance.

“They were like new”

“Rob is one of those tradesmen you dream about. His communication was excellent – he kept us in the loop with timeframes and was prompt and efficient. The sash windows in our Grade II listed building had seen better days, but he handled them with care and when he was finished, they were like new. Thank you.”
