    I have a 2-3 windows in a semi ... double glazed-probably softwood (mahogony colour) which need either replacing or a repair.

    I'm not sure which ...the beading is rotted at the base where water settles and when u poke a sharp object it is like cheese.

    Can I get a joiner to replace the beading? or could it be repaired with wood hardener at this stage?

    realy depends on the extent off the dammage just replace the cill if thats all thats rotton plus the beading of course ;)

    if it is a relativily small area you dig out at least 90% of the soft wood use hardner on the remaning key in replacement wood [at an angle cos end grain dont stick to well]or filler if its a small area

    We wanted to add new windows and a conservatory to our garden and wanted to be able to price it ourselves. We found a really useful website for conservatories, replacement windows and doors. They had clear instructions and prices online and the prices were very good so we opted to buy from them. It was an excellent product and was delivered on time. You can have a look at http://doubleglazingontheweb.co.uk
