Aluminium to Cedar Window install

Finished Product, Uncategorized, Work in progress

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).

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.

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.
