Les (The Sash Doctor) renovated five of our windows. He did an absolutely fantastic job. His attention to detail and craftmanship are second to none. I would have no hesitation in recommending him.

Les, aka the Sash Doctor, has done a superb job of repairing and conserving our original 1720's Georgian sash windows. He made good shoddy workmanship from previous repairers and it is difficult to see where any repair work has been done. He was also able to replace damaged old glass with glass of a similar age and character. He also kept us entertained with his stories and his take on current affairs! I hope he is able to pass his expertise on to the next generation - it is too valuable to lose.

A stunning refurbishment of our sash windows

I have absolutely no hesitation in whole heartedly recommending The Sash Doctor. Les has done a magnificent job on our sash windows, our house is grade II listed so we needed an expert. And we found one. Our windows were in a sorry state, many wouldn't open after years of neglect, they were draughty, they rattled and several were rotten, but since he has completed a full restoration they look like new windows. In fact they are no doubt better than when they were fitted, we have no more draughts and the house is so much quieter. There are other options out there, many companies will offer to fit double glazing to sash windows or fancy draught proofing systems but as I have learnt over the past 3 months with wooden sashes every window is slightly different and they require a craftsman to understand and restore them to their former glory. Bear in mind also that most companies out there don't fully finish the windows, many don't include painting and you'll have to find a painter yourself. Les completes a full refurbishment from start to finish including painting. Les Barnard is an expert and a time served craftsman and they are few and far between in this day and age. If you want your windows restored better than the day they were fitted, it's a simple choice, choose The Sash Doctor. Bear in mind though, anyone this good is very busy, he has work lined up well in advance, but believe me, he is worth waiting for.

Amazing standard of work

The standard of Les' workmanship and windows is incredible and he has really enhanced the feel of our Victorian cottage by replacing the 4 large, rotten existing windows with immaculate sashes. He also had the vision and expertise to suggest we fit splitter bars to the windows to give an even more rustic feel. A real character, Les cares about the standard of his work and that is what you want on such crucial parts of your home. Would happily use again - but he is a busy man!

We had six Victorian sash windows restored. Very little work had been done on them since 1878. They are now as good as new - if not better. If you want a cheap job or a quick job you should probably go elsewhere, but if you want the best possible job go to The Sash Doctor. I don't think I have ever seen more painstaking work. This includes the woodwork, the priming, undercoating, top coat and reglazing. The only problem is that he is so busy that you might have to wait.

Have no hesitation in recommending The Sash Doctor. He is highly skilled and did a wonderful job for us, reconstructing a porch and replacing a complicated 'period' door.

Right craftsman for the job

5 Georgian sash windows renovated back to original glory. Les started the job a month late due to unforeseeable weather conditions on previous job. This is partly where the 4 stars come from as communication of the delay didn't happen unless I phoned him. This led to booking problems with my own self catering holiday business. However once on the job Les worked to a punctual time and left the job tidy every evening and at the end of the job both flats were left as clean as expected. The quality of workmanship is excellent and cannot fault in any way. Although I have given 5 stars for value as I do think the overall quality and costs involved in doing the job are fair the charge for extra work was not communicated at all and had a significant impact on the overall bill. I felt this should have been addressed. Overall I am very happy with Les's work and will be using him in the future and would not hesitate in recommending him.

Workmanship was excellent, hard to come by these days. I have had sash windows taken out and restored previously, so I know what is involved. When I spoke to Les I new he was the right man for the job and it proved right. Great job!

We approached Les, The Sash Doctor, after deciding we wanted our original sash windows renovating rather than replacing with new wood. Les has since renovated windows in the whole house and renovated our antique front door. We have used his services on approx three occasions in total as his workmanship (quality) is outstanding. We would rather pay more for his high standard than approaching a cheaper / sub standard company. You pay for what you get! Great service all round. Always turned up when he said he would. Keep up the good work Les.
