Yesterday we removed 2 old aluminium sliding windows (the original timber frames were still hidden behind them and also had to be removed).
We kept the internal linings, nosing and aves as they were in good condition and there was no need to replace them. But more care is required when removing the existing frames so as to not damage those internal timbers.
We replaced them with new cedar single hung windows. Dummy side sashes (they dont move). Locks, screen and operated with spiral balances (black tubes that hold the sash up and down – as opposed to weights and pulleys in a box frame window (we we also make).
A client asked if i made 3 panel sliding doors. We do. But looking through my pictures, i dont see one on my site. So here is an aluminium sliding door, with 3 panels. One of the fixed panels has a doggy door.

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.
before and after
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.
this morning we removed an aluminium garden bay window in a kitchen, and replaced it with a more traditional window that would have originally been there.
This is the aluminium window we were to remove. This is to coincide with a kitchen refit inside. note the roof- that actually opens!
Window removed, and the opening exposed. You can see how much silicon on the sides (and head) were used on the alum window.
New Cedar Window. Quads outside, lining and aves on the inside. new kitchen bench will slide right up against the window sill.
Look at how many frames we have in the factory at this one moment. Running out of space.
I thought i had posted this photo a while ago – its on my instagram page.

After a few days out on work sites installing some doorframes, and a bay window repair, I’ve come to the factory and seen the lads assembling this exceptional custom door. Just looking at it midway through assembly gives a sense of how much time and work is involved in this sort of project.
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.
Just got back from north Adelaide where we removed 2 fire damaged windows and replaced with new cedar ones.
