Another georgian sash window undergoing one of the many stages of work, Here the cill is in need of replacement.
Here is one with the cill cut out ready for replacement, sound surfaces are stripped back, treated & filled where required, then primed & undercoated twice, flatting off between coats.
After final preperation and a replacement cill the window is ready for a topcoat. Here heratige oilbased exterior eggshell is used, two coats are applied flatting off between each coat.
Completed Restoration, Ready for stonemasons pointing.
A completed georgian sash, the finish English Heritage required was "a high quality finish without looking too new".
Original knots,minor wood & putty imperfections were left to "add character" and all cutting in was done freehand,
 no masking tape used here!
