All restoration works are carried out without dismantling directly on customer site. Only in some cases, the restoration of windows in Crystal Lake requires processing them in workshop conditions. Such moments are negotiated with the client individually.
In comparison with the restoration of other wooden hardware (doors, fittings, etc.), wooden windows restoration of is more labor-intensive and painstaking work. First of all, this is due to the presence of such a fragile and traumatic material as glass, which significantly complicates frame removing process from its hinges and its subsequent processing.
Usually, old window frames coating (varnish, paint) is removed using a special construction grinder. When processing a wooden surface with hot air, the paint or varnish is peeled off and quite simply removed. However, in cases where the repair is performed without glass removed from the frame, there is a great risk that the glass may burst due to high temperature. To avoid this, for old coating removing, we use a special chemical composition - remover.
