Draught Proofing Sash Windows

Cheap draught exclusion systems – the green deal will help bring about draught proofing improvements to homes and businesses that qualify for a loan under the grant scheme. Installation of draught proof measures will reduce energy bills and lower CO2 emissions. Sealing doors and windows is essential to prevent cold draughts from entering the domestic home or property.


Many existing homes are fitted with conventional wooden framed windows and doors. Over time the frames (casements) may become warped and weathered, allowing draughts to enter the home or workplace.

Sash windows can be sealed with draught excluder tape or sealant to permanently seal the window if double glazed windows cannot be fitted due to local planning permission restrictions. Doors can usually be sealed by fitting draught excluders and exclusion tapes around the door.
