Yesterday we installed a cedar sliding door into a prepared opening. Glass by others (will be double glazed). We are also removing fixed panels of bronze float glass and installing opening casement sashes (opens like doors). Up in the hills overlooking the city.
We hope everyone had a nice christmas/new year break. We hope this year is succesful for everyone out there.
Everyone at the window man is back on deck this week. For some reason we start the year with a lot of raked frames
Today is the last day for the year at the window man 2022. We are taking a few weeks off with all staff back on deck next year on 23rd jan.
This year has been a difficult one with supply chains, ever upward costs in materials, difficulty in sourcing good timbers, changes to aluminium extrustion suppliers with our domestic windows and just covid randomly playing havoc. Despite all of the head winds we have had another successful year and look forward to both the break and the return for next year.
If you need anything quoted – please email it to us, George and I are still around and will receive your emails. Calling the factory probably wont get a response unless one of us happens to be in the office.
We wish all our customers and suppliers a happy and safe break.

We just finished a custom skylite panel which was loaded up for delivery- not 15minutes ago.
1525 x 2875 stop schampfers, timber beaded, solid western red cedar – as per a design given to us by the builder. They plan on having custom leadlight fitted and I should imagine will look very impressive in the ceiling of a home.
this 4 panel sliding door with flydoors is glazed with clear comfort plus 6.38 laminate glass and ready for delivery today
It is rapidly heading towards the end of the year.
Have some photos of what has been going on last few days…
We have remade a whole house load of plantation shutters. these are operarable, but really play a more decorative role on the house rather than function. we had the best originals to work off, the rest were much too rotten. lots of time/ labour for these.
One of the builders who ordered a door and window has finished the installation and sent us some photos.
Here is a 3 panel bifold we just made. glazed with 6.38 grey laminate glass. ready for pick up.
