Yesterday we removed 3 old aluminium sliding windows which had 3mm float glass, and replaced them with new slightly larger residential framing( depth 60mm) glazed with 6.38 clear laminate glass. Awnings with chain winders and screens. The result was quite dramatic, with a fair few compliments as people passed by.
3 of us on the first day, and1more morning to just finish some angles on the outside.
Just got back from north Adelaide where we removed 2 fire damaged windows and replaced with new cedar ones.
Yesterday we removed 4 sash window which had become very old and rotten and replaced with residential aluminium windows.
Today we removed a rotten timber window (acting as a skylight). The rot had stopped the sashes being open. We installed a new aluminium window with a battery powered, chain winder. The customer has a little remote control and points it to the window and it opens/closes.
Just finished assembling this bifold window with no sill. Ready for the client to pick it up.
I was asked today – do you make doors?
we sure do! I decided to put a few door photos we have made into one pic. take a look!

You will note the website almost always shows off the lovely timber joinery work we do.
We also have do aluminium windows and doors – both residential and commercial grade.
Today a client will pick up their custom sized bathroom awning window with spotswood obscure glass as requested.
Our residential window is 60mm deep, which is a little more deep than a lot of other window frames made which sit around 40-50mm.
You can see the flyscreen sits on top of the winder block so you can wind out the sash and keep the screen in place.
Well we have been back to work after the Christmas break – George and I since Jan 8th, and the rest of our staff on the 23rd.
Whilst I have been uploading more pictures through Instagram, I must admit I’ve been a bit lax on our website here. Here are some of the things we have been up to – I could post a lot more, but I need to get back to glazing some sashes.
here is hoping to a successful and happy 2020 for all.
