Regardless of the construction time, residential or industrial buildings require regular repairs and renovations. Windows attract special attention, so replacing them is a decisive step that does not come cheap. If the customer has no complaints about the windows state, but inside workings are still necessary, then only the window sill can be replaced with a new one. Several signs indicate the need for replacement:
- The surface is deformed under the influence of heavy loads;
- The coating is scratched, melted at temperature, there are cracks or chips;
- There are traces of chemicals that corroded the window sill;
- The material, color, or shape of the old window sill does not fit into the style of the renovated room.
- The cost to replace a window in Home Quote is much higher than the partial repair. If you are approaching the matter of renovating your home firmly and cannot do without replacing parts, contact the company – it provides a full range of repair services.
Materials window sills can be made from
In the same way as window frames, sills are made from a variety of materials. They differ in resistance, durability, and eco-friendliness. The choice of material for the inside window sill depends on many factors. Rooms can have different temperature regimes, humidity conditions, and purposes. Most often, the window sill is made from:
- Solid wood;
- Wood-shaving materials;
- Natural stone;
- Faux stone.
For bedrooms, living, and children’s rooms, wooden window sills will be the best option. The material is completely environmentally friendly, is stable to temperature effects such as too burning sun, and does not fade. The wood board is subject to a special treatment that prevents the absorption of odors and moisture, so its properties do not change over time. A wooden window sill can withstand loads well, so it can be used as a bench if its width is sufficient. Natural coloring harmoniously fits into rooms with different design styles.
In rooms with high humidity, plastic and stone window sills can be installed. In bathrooms, kitchens, and utility rooms, they are most suitable, as they tolerate the effects of detergents well and are easy to clean. If the kitchen is so small that the window sill will be used as a work surface, then choose stone material. Objects with high temperatures can be placed here. It stands up to damage from inventory drops remaining intact.
Plastic parts of windows can be made in any color range. They are lightweight and affordable, so they are installed in rooms where they require quick replacement – in offices, children’s rooms, and utility rooms.
Choosing a window replacement company
The service life of products and the ease of using them depend on the professionalism of the installation and repair master. Therefore, choosing a specialist for partial repair or complete window replacement is an important task. The company must meet a number of criteria:

- Guarantees the company’s responsibility to the customer;
