For some reason we have had an influx of just timber flyscreens to make up or rewire. Not just one client, but 3 of them, have all asked for many screens in the same day. Here are some in the middle stage of production. frames are made, but no wire/bead.

Meranti window install

Finished Product, Work in progress

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.

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.
