Happy monday to you all. We survived the heat wave (closed the factory a few times early last week). Here is a sliding window we are working on at the moment.
Old Doors New DoorsFinished Product
We are often asked to reproduce / match existing windows and doors and sashes that have seen better days. Here are a pair of rebated meranti doors we have just finished today.
Colonial barsFinished Product, Work in progress
We are making a series of cedar frames with colonial bars. They will be sent off and some of the frames will be assembled on site to make a bay window (about an hour south of Adelaide). I am also trying out a new glass cleaning product which I must say is fantastic.

Window to Sliding door conversion.Finished Product, Uncategorized, Work in progress
We headed out an hours drive from Adelaide for this job. We removed 4 sections of a window frame (1 awning and 3 fixed panels).
added cowdroy top hung track systems on the inside and outside of the frame. Prior to coming out we had made a pair of doors and a pair of flydoors (in meranti to match).
added flydoors to external track and glass doors to internal tracking. Added rubber seals around doorstop of the glass doors for good weathersealing. Glass doors were double glazed.

Yesterday we installed a cedar sliding door into a prepared opening. Glass by others (will be double glazed). We are also removing fixed panels of bronze float glass and installing opening casement sashes (opens like doors). Up in the hills overlooking the city.
2023 – back in actionFinished Product, Uncategorized, Work in progress
We hope everyone had a nice christmas/new year break. We hope this year is succesful for everyone out there.
Everyone at the window man is back on deck this week. For some reason we start the year with a lot of raked frames
2022 Break up day!Finished Product, Uncategorized, Work in progress
Today is the last day for the year at the window man 2022. We are taking a few weeks off with all staff back on deck next year on 23rd jan.
This year has been a difficult one with supply chains, ever upward costs in materials, difficulty in sourcing good timbers, changes to aluminium extrustion suppliers with our domestic windows and just covid randomly playing havoc. Despite all of the head winds we have had another successful year and look forward to both the break and the return for next year.
If you need anything quoted – please email it to us, George and I are still around and will receive your emails. Calling the factory probably wont get a response unless one of us happens to be in the office.
We wish all our customers and suppliers a happy and safe break.

Decorative Sky lightFinished Product, Uncategorized, Work in progress
We just finished a custom skylite panel which was loaded up for delivery- not 15minutes ago.
1525 x 2875 stop schampfers, timber beaded, solid western red cedar – as per a design given to us by the builder. They plan on having custom leadlight fitted and I should imagine will look very impressive in the ceiling of a home.
