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.
Blackbutt or Ironwood is a very dense hardwood. nearly 900kilos a cubic meter its almost 3x heavier than the cedar we usually work with. Here we have made a corner stacker door system + a standard stacker door. We will install tuesday at mt barker.
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.
before and after
The original window- sorry i dont know why the picture image failed so badly. The Window was rotten and the top sash glass was ready to drop out the base of the sash.
Yesterday we installed 2 windows. 1 is a fixed frame where we reused the old leadlight. Pictures speak louder than words;-
New window in, but yet to cap/finish the surrounds
Just back in the office after this mornings install. Old Casement window had well and truly rotten away. New Cedar Awning window – clear glass, and winder + screen on inside.
Look at how many frames we have in the factory at this one moment. Running out of space.
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.
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.
