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
This morning, we had 3 bifolds up and screwed in by 9:30am.
I’ve come back to the factory to relax and do this post, whilst the lads struggle on and do the finishing touches. Monday we glaze them.
Here is our job site. timber posts between bifolds.
Getting the first bifold moved into position
3 bifolds secured in (more screws later) by 930am. Glazing will occur monday with 6.38 clear laminate glass.
Its nearing the end of the year and we have been flat out trying to get all our work done before the xmas break. Its so busy ive had no time to upload new photos recently, but here is a job we were on yesterday.
Clear Anodise series 400 commercial framing with hinged door.
This job now needs to be glazed, and we have windows on the second floor as well.
This job was very technical and potentially dangerous.
2nd floor timber window which was floor to ceiling height was rotten.
Original Window. Rotten frames with 4mm float glass which is incredibly unsafe for the location and size of the glass panels. Not sure when it was made, but very illegal by today’s standards.
New clear anodise commercial frame with 6.38 clear comfort plus glass. Arched commercial frame with sliding door. The timber facade was for the owner to replace with a new metal flashing.
Inside view of the new window / door combination. The balcony is now usable whereas before as just a window it was merely decoration. Glazed with clear comfort plus Low-E glass.
We had to erect scaffolding on the outside balcony to remove the existing window. We found the glass to be 4mm float- incredibly dangerous for something that height, and size. Taking the original glass out required delicate care to safely remove.
