ENVIROGUARD sash replacement kit - double hung window sash replacement

Sash Replacement Kit

To fix a faulty window sash was once a costly, messy, lengthy and intrusive process. Now, with the ENVIROGUARD™ Block & Tackle sash replacement kit, we offer a faster, easier, cleaner and more affordable way to replace a window sash on double-hung windows. How? The EnviroGuard Sash Replacement Kit enables homeowners to simply replace the sash and not the entire replacement window unit*, keeping cost and mess to a minimum and cuts replacement time down from hours to just minutes per window.

Impervious to rot and insects, the ENVIROGUARD™ BT30 block and tackle double-hung replacement sash kit is not only an affordable and easy way to replace windows*, but they are also beautiful and durable. Constructed with the highest quality cellular PVC, our sash replacement units have all the natural characteristics of wood, including great appearance–without the shortcomings of wood. They won’t rot, peel, splinter, decay, nor absorb moisture.

Unlike vinyl windows, our cellular PVC double hung sash kits can be painted, look like real wood, and offer more glass space.

*Assumes that the window frame is not rotted and still structurally sound.

Finishing

Enviroguard should be painted with standard oil base or latex paint using industry standard painting techniques after cleaning.

Enviroguard product extrusions are cellular PVC, a vinyl-based composite. As such, they may be subject to thermal expansion and contraction at direct temperatures above 145 F degrees. Extreme dark colors may accelerate this situation, as dark colors tend to absorb a greater amount of solar heat, which can cause cellular PVC to expand and contract excessively and warping/distortion can occur. Distortion of frame and sash components, paint adhesion loss, blistering and peeling could also result. Painting Enviroguard products a dark color (any color that falls within the L value of 56 to 0) can generate high localized temperatures in the product.

WARNING: Painting any Enviroguard cellular PVC product with a paint color darker than L value of 56 (where black = 0 and white = 100 will forfeit the product warranty. If, despite the above warning, you should choose to paint Enviroguard products a dark color (as defined above), a paint specifically designed for these applications MUST be used. Whichever paint manufacturer is chosen must be contacted to verify the paint's reflective properties and suitability with regard to painting cellular PVC. Precision Millworks Inc is not liable for paint used on our cellular PVC components or the result of its use.

Beginning April 22, 2010, contractors performing renovation, repair and painting projects that disturb lead-based paint in homes, child care facilities, and schools built before 1978 must be certified and must follow specific work practices to prevent lead contamination. EPA requires that firms performing renovation, repair, and painting projects that disturb lead-based paint in pre-1978 homes, child care facilities and schools be certified by EPA and that they use certified renovators who are trained by EPA-approved training providers to follow lead-safe work practices.
