Window Sash Repair

The sash of a window is crucial because it is the bearing structure that secures the glass, and it contributes significantly to the aesthetic of the window. Window sashes are generally made from wood, vinyl, and aluminum which can all become damaged over time. Damage to the sash can prevent the window from opening and closing smoothly and compromise the security of the glass. Wooden window sashes can also become rotted from condensation or water leaks. When window sashes become damaged or rotted, it is important for them to be repaired or replaced immediately. Arax Windows Work provides window sash replacement and repair throughout Chicagoland. Our professionals can repair or replace the window sashes for any type of windows including double hung windows, slider windows, casement windows, and more. We will assess the damage to the window sash to determine if it can be repaired or if window sash replacement is necessary.

Issues with Window Sashes

Window sashes can become cracked, scratched, and worn out from exposure to the elements and general wear and tear. If any part of the sash becomes damaged, it can compromise the security of the glass within the window. Wooden window sashes are also vulnerable to rot which can be caused by prolonged sunlight exposure or moisture from water leaks and condensation. Rotting of wood sashes will continue to get worse until it is addressed, and it can eventually damage other parts of the window.

Another common problem with window sashes is difficulty opening and closing windows. If a sash is damaged or out of alignment, the window will not open and close as smoothly as it should. In some cases, the sash can be realigned but more severe cases may require repair or replacement.

If you notice any damage to your window sashes, you need to call our professionals.



What is a Window Sash?

The window sash is the part of the window within the frame that holds the glass in place.  The sash includes the part that borders and holds the glass as well as the grilles that typically form a cross pattern on the glass.  It is the grilles of the sash that add to the aesthetics of the window and can give the home a unique character.

For most window types, the sashes are the part that moves to open and close the windows.  The number of sashes differs by window type as there may be an upper and lower sash, such as with double hung windows, or a single sash such as with slider windows.  Window sashes can be made out of wood, vinyl, or aluminum.
