Today we installed a 4panel cedar window with double glazing. note;- if you use instagram we have an account = #thewindowmanSA
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).
Another year is winding down for us at TWM. And what a year it has been for us all.
Just a quick notification we are closing end of today and will (officially) return on the 18th.
If you require a quote, please send us an email with your details (and some photos if you can) and we can get back to you in the new year.
A client asked if i made 3 panel sliding doors. We do. But looking through my pictures, i dont see one on my site. So here is an aluminium sliding door, with 3 panels. One of the fixed panels has a doggy door.

We are flat out as the year winds down. So much so, i’ve had no time to post our works – even the more interesting ones. So keep in mind #thewindowmanSA on instagram has more photos as it’s quicker for me to do so.
Wed and Thurs we removed 2 corner timber windows which had extensive water rot.
We did one set each day.
Thursday we drove to Edithburg, and worked on 4x windows. stayed overnight and finished it the next day.
Yesterday we installed 2 windows. 1 is a fixed frame where we reused the old leadlight. Pictures speak louder than words;-
this morning we removed an aluminium garden bay window in a kitchen, and replaced it with a more traditional window that would have originally been there.
I thought i had posted this photo a while ago – its on my instagram page.

After a few days out on work sites installing some doorframes, and a bay window repair, I’ve come to the factory and seen the lads assembling this exceptional custom door. Just looking at it midway through assembly gives a sense of how much time and work is involved in this sort of project.
