Finished Product, Uncategorized, Work in progress

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.

Finished Product, Uncategorized, Work in progress

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

Bay Window Repair

Finished Product, Work in progress

A dog had chewed the colonial bars of the window. We had been asked by insurance to replace this section of the bay window.

This sash had rotted and no longer was operable. Again we were asked to replace this section of the bay window.

Old sash / New sash!

After a hell of a lot of care to remove the existing center frame from the above timber paneling. Same on inside – we managed to keep all the decorative beading on the inside. New panel in, cover plates replaced.

New awning sash in place too.

Bespoke Custom Door assembly

Uncategorized, Work in progress

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.

 

Remove and install of Aluminium Windows

Finished Product, Work in progress

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.
