How fast this year has flown by. As deadline to our one and only break looms, we are pushing as much work out as possible. Some random work of what has been going on;
Just a photo of a single sash remake from its old sample provided. I’ve actually just finished 7 different sashes , but here is a photo of one…changed to clear glass, but otherwise an exact match.
An interesting window frame this one. We were given a template to match the curve required. I had the glass cut but not glazed, so they might be able to secure the frame through the glass rebate, then hide with the glazing bead. Will be grey laminate glass.
This new sliding door frame is ready for the glass. We are glazing this with double glazed units.
4mm clear toughened 8mm argon gap 4mm claer toughened.
Builder will install themselves, so we wont get to see the finished result.
This cedar arched frame was just picked up from the factory. We made this based on an arch template given to us, and working on opening sizes for existing leadlight the client wanted to re-use. Hoping once installed they will send us some finished photos!
Remember = everything we make is of a custom size to suit our customers. We don’t have to work on set/standard sizes.
Old and their new replacement sashes. Putty glazed, same thickness glass so the old counter-weights will still work.
Bring in your old sashes and we can reproduce them. Same idea with flyscreens. Size and detail will dictate the cost, but we can quote once we see (or email dimensions and a photo).
This is a little cedar bathroom window we have made with inbuilt shelf/cabinet with mirror. Lovely little thing.
Well, its been a hectic and busy few months for us all. Our timberside is literally filled with frames at the moment, and supply chains seem to lag along. We even had a problem of getting grey laminate glass for a short while…

Yesterday we removed 2 old aluminium sliding windows (the original timber frames were still hidden behind them and also had to be removed).
We kept the internal linings, nosing and aves as they were in good condition and there was no need to replace them. But more care is required when removing the existing frames so as to not damage those internal timbers.
We replaced them with new cedar single hung windows. Dummy side sashes (they dont move). Locks, screen and operated with spiral balances (black tubes that hold the sash up and down – as opposed to weights and pulleys in a box frame window (we we also make).
