12 lite colonial fixed lite window

Work in progress

I (hi! im Peter, the production manager) -took this photo of Tom (who has been installing and making windows longer than I have been alive). He is making the glazing bead on each pane of glass.  Tom has more experience up his sleeve than I could ever hope for and is a valuable asset to our team, and frankly, a surrogate uncle to me.

Arched commercial aluminium window and sliding door

Finished Product

This job was very technical and potentially dangerous.

2nd floor timber window which was floor to ceiling height was rotten.

Original Window. Rotten frames with 4mm float glass which is incredibly unsafe for the location and size of the glass panels. Not sure when it was made, but very illegal by today’s standards.

Inside view of the new window / door combination. The balcony is now usable whereas before as just a window it was merely decoration. Glazed with clear comfort plus Low-E glass.

after

We had to erect scaffolding on the outside balcony to remove the existing window. We found the glass to be 4mm float- incredibly dangerous for something that height, and size.  Taking the original glass out required delicate care to safely remove.
