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.
My last little post had a picture of arches being made.
here is the photo of one of the windows being installed.
it went almost perfect today, i had the first window out by 8am, and the new ones fit perfectly with no need to adjust or alter.
A shopfront had been fire damaged and required a new window/door.
All the beautiful artwork painted on the original window was burnt and cracked and damaged – but the owner said the artist will come back and do something new.
the African shop in Woodville had been damaged by fire. all that artwork was handpainted on the glass.
New clear anodise commercial aluminium shopfront. Note the wall so close to the window – we could not glaze on the inside. So we used 10.38 laminate glass, and glazed at the front only.

Yesterday, we removed a window at a hairdresser which had been hit by a car.
A meranti 4 panel fixed lite, just under 5meters wide. 10.38 clear laminate glass was used.
This morning we set up 2 bifolds for installation. here is a photo of the work being carried out. I left the lads there to finish the glazing, so its not a finished photo.
Cedar bifold doors.

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.

This Bifold had its active panel ripped off in a storm.
this is the panel that was pulled off in the wind.
You can see some of the damage to the hinges.
The doors,hinges, perimeter jambs and head, and the seals were all damaged in the storm. only a new bifold would be appropriate, repair was out of the question.
all loaded up the sunday afternoon before the install.
