"A carpenter/ joiner can repair sash windows, you would want someone that has worked on sash windows before though, minor repairs to the sashes due to damage or rot can be repaired by a product call window care this is a resin repair system that can be planes and shaped after cured"

"Im a professional time served carpenter and have restored plenty of sash windows they have to be considerably rotton to be in position to completly replace them.
I use larch to repair any rotton pieces as its flexible hardwood with good strenth ideal for sash window repairs."
