This is the original window. from afar, it looks OK. however it had been bogged up with putty and car bog to fill in some rot in various joins. the glass is 3mm float. A variety of different timbers were in this old frame; pine, cedar, meranti, and a bit of oak.
glass panels are removed, and in this instance we worked by removing the small side first, adding the new window and then removing the longer side.
The Head of the window was nailed to the overhead beam which had been capped in metal. Great care had to be taken at this stage.
New little window has been placed temporary, whilst the head of the larger window frame is now being moved.
New Window frames now placed in. The Client had painted them prior to us installing/glazing. Glass is a much thicker/safer 6.38 laminate glass.
End result. The client just needs to paint the extra timber panels on corner and top and it will blend in. This install was done in 1 day, with a 2nd day to just add an extra piece of timber on the inside to cover the gap between gyprock and window frame.
