When the box frame of a sash window begins to rot and decay, the windows can sag which results in dirt build up, draughts and damp which can leave your sash windows looking aesthetically displeasing. Wood can be durable and have a long life with regular maintenance but can suffer if left untended.
The common areas of your sash windows that are prone to decay are the window sills, bottom rail, meeting rail and bottom box frame. Symptoms of sash window decay can be in the form of flaking paint, missing putty, or open joints and gaps around the sash window which can lead to moisture intake and further wood decay.
With a small amount of general maintenance, when needed, they will withstand the elements and stand the test of time.
