In addition to our primary offerings of custom millwork and sales of support items like weatherstrip and various hardware St. Louis Sash offers other services on a limited basis.
Generally offered at no additional charge, depending on circumstances.
Product field adjustments
Despite the most careful measurements, often time it will be necessary to perform slight trimming onsite to ensure the best fit and operation of door and window products. This process is offered at an additional charge and is available for most projects.
Penetrating oil pretreatment
Certain products will perform better and have their longevity enhanced with this process. Linseed oil is thinned and applied liberally to all surfaces to impede water absorption. This is applied prior to glazing or assembling panels into doors and windows. This is also an additional charge.
Personally having spent many decades studying architecture as well as refining and expanding the company’s tooling collection, St Louis Sash has ability to produce many fine details in millwork. Our services include design consultation for restoration and other historic projects based on this experience and background.
