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.
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.
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.
Well we have been back to work after the Christmas break – George and I since Jan 8th, and the rest of our staff on the 23rd.
Whilst I have been uploading more pictures through Instagram, I must admit I’ve been a bit lax on our website here. Here are some of the things we have been up to – I could post a lot more, but I need to get back to glazing some sashes.
here is hoping to a successful and happy 2020 for all.

Today we installed 8.76 OBSERVA glass into c-channel framing we had put up a few days earlier. It is in a medical clinic. the staff can see into the patients room, without the patients unable to see back into their office.
this type of glass works best when you have a dark internal room, looking out into a bright room.
This morning we removed an old rotten window at a rugby club. The original was a 4 panel awning window (so it could wind out), but the client wanted fixed panels instead.
WE reduced it 2 panel fixed lite. None of the sashes could be opened at this point – all had swollen from moisture and had sealed themselves shut.
Last week we pulled out the old rotten windows in a lovely sun room. the floor was hand made parquetry, truly time-consuming to make.
We replaced the frames with new cedar frames. This time with no colonial bars, and increased the glass from 3mm float, to 6.38 clear comfort plus Low-E glass.
