About Copycats

Copycats was established over twenty years ago by a Master Joiner with the aim of providing the best in traditional replacement Box sash windows and to provide a restoration service for existing.

While we specialise in Box Sash, over the years our portfolio has increased to include period Casement windows, doors, internal and external staircases. We have also been asked to produce some unusual items, whether copying existing or designing from scratch.

Copycats have worked on all types of properties from the smallest cottages to large Queen Anne mansions. Its work is well respected with much work generated from personal recommendation. The business is also well known and respected by local council conservation officers and across the country. We have worked on Heritage properties, listed buildings and in conservation areas as well as modern properties.

The Company
Our company is built on the principles of making quality products and providing reliable friendly family service. Our workshop is fully equipped with traditional woodworking machines to cover most eventualities.

Products
Restoration is a large part of our business whether it’s windows, doors, decorative moulding, skirtings or architrave. We are able to reproduce copies of original Georgian, Victorian and Venetian windows. Where possible we discreetly incorporate modern draught proofing, and we can also fit double glazed units without spoiling the look or character of the window style.

When it comes to the repair or replacement of older windows there are many problems. The most difficult to overcome are that firstly all old houses used imperial dimensions as opposed to metric and secondly often each window was custom made. Even where the originals were mass produced there are problems sourcing the correct replacements as the original tooling has long since been disposed of.

Replacements can be made with exactly the same mouldings and horn details as the original. The results are in fact identical to how the originals would have looked when they were new.

Copycats pride itself on being able to copy any style of window:
  • Traditional Box sash
  • Hexagonal design
  • Diamond Casement

To do this we make our own cutters to profile the wood to the original dimensions, we do not buy the mouldings ready cut. Each window is hand made using selected first class materials, joinery grade pine is used throughout except for the hardwood cills.

We follow traditional practices with the sash hung from waxed cord over brass pulley wheels onto counter-weights in the side pockets. We are not totally slaves to tradition, where your comfort is considered, we discreetly fit modern draught proofing into the window to keep your rooms warmer and stop sash rattle.

Double glazing is also available with the Copycats perfected design allowing the retention of the narrow glazing bars so attractive in sash windows. We are also able to double glaze new windows so they conform to Document 'L' of the Building Regulations.

Services
At Copycats we offer various services, restoration and refurbishment of originals, total replacement, double glazing, secondary glazing, draught proofing, wood turning, supply and fit or supply only, adapting original design to incorporate modern features.

Copycats can offer more than just a window repair service. Wherever bespoke joinery is needed we can help, be it inside or outside your home. We often undertake extra work for our customers with doors and stairs being the most numerous other requests. Being specialists in matching existing work we can supply that extra element of originality that others struggle to achieve.

We can supply and fit, here we are taking out Metal Crittal Windows and fitting new double glazed casement windows, copying the style of the originals else where in the building. We are able to copy spindles for staircases were one or two are dammaged, or even pillars or just there bases.
