Wood Double-Hung Replacement Windows...

Do you own a old house with drafty, leaky, old double-hung windows? Do you have sky-high utility bills as a result of this?  Well, A & A Millwork, Inc. has a solution to your window problems.  We would like to present, with great pride, our architecturally correct wood double-hung replacement SASH KITS. 

We have taken the look of yesterday and combined the technology of today to produce, what we feel, is the finest double-hung replacement window system available. 

Controlling Air Leaks

When air leaks around windows, energy is wasted.  Energy is also transferred through the centers, edges, and frames of the windows.  Eliminating or reducing these paths can greatly improve the energy efficiency of windows. 

With the weight and pulley system, you have empty non-insulated walls on each side of the window, called a cavity.  This is where the pulleys operate.  The cavities retain cold/hot air and allows air infiltration.  Air is like water.  It can get through any gap or crack.  Air coming through the glass is very minimal.   In addition to the non-insulated cavities, the sashes must fit loosely together in order to operate, causing an even greater draft and heat loss.

Upgrading Your Windows With Our Sash Kit

Our sash replacement system will eliminate your drafty and inefficient weight and pulley system.  The weight and pulleys are removed and the weight cavities are insulated with fiberglass blanket insulation  Vinyl jamb liners are installed on each vertical side of the window opening.  These jamb liners function as an insulating seal for your windows, eliminating the air infiltration from the weight cavities.  The jamb liners also contain a block and tackle system, providing years of smooth and efficient operation of your new sashes.
