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.
Original Window. THe Right most panel has the glass ready to fall out as the bottom of the sash is comopletly rotten and sagging.
THe sashes have been removed and the mullions cut to then allow the rest of the perimeter frame to come out.
New frame in. Very tight working conditions on the inside.
Finito. Notice the bottom sill tiles have come away (they were resting on original frame). The Builder has a tiler organised to re-cement back in the correct angle. Our work is complete.
Yesterday myself, Tom and Andrew installed this bay window (and another double window which ill add photos later). The original window was rotting away and falling apart. White cathedral glass on top colonial sashes, clear laminate on bottom panels. Sides are fixed/dummy sashes with the middle panel able to be lifted up (screens not in photo but sit on outside.)
Cedar bay window
This morning we removed 2 rotten timber framed louvre windows and replaced them with our aluminium residential sliding windows. Flange and angle to finish, with some timber beading to go on the inside. i left the lads to finish the job once we had the larger one screwed in. The owner was pretty happy and has asked us to quote for more along the side of the house.
Removing rotten wooden timbers and replacing with aluminium
These are 2 new windows installed this week.
Just a few photos of various bits n’ pieces that have occurred lately.
Replacing a rotten timber box frame window with its new cedar replacement.

look at this mess! this is early on in a window install. a timber window has been removed,and a new aluminium window is prepared for install
the post is pretty self explanatory.
the walls will be rendered at the final point of the buildings renovation.
Well, earlier i posted some arched doors and doorframes which i loaded up on saturday. Monday Tom and I installed them. here are some photos.
The handcast iron gate hardware really made the frames stand out.
Last week three of us worked in Glenelg, installing some aluminium sliding windows, and the main task – a wall cut and install of a timber bifold window with timber servery bench. A lintel was used in this process.
some photos showing a brick wall being cut and bifold installed.
The inside is then finished with a bullnose sill, quads inside and out and the mortar from the bricks re-done.
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.
