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.
Last week we pulled out the old rotten windows in a lovely sun room. the floor was hand made parquetry, truly time-consuming to make.
We replaced the frames with new cedar frames. This time with no colonial bars, and increased the glass from 3mm float, to 6.38 clear comfort plus Low-E glass.
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.
A shopfront had been fire damaged and required a new window/door.
All the beautiful artwork painted on the original window was burnt and cracked and damaged – but the owner said the artist will come back and do something new.
the African shop in Woodville had been damaged by fire. all that artwork was handpainted on the glass.
New clear anodise commercial aluminium shopfront. Note the wall so close to the window – we could not glaze on the inside. So we used 10.38 laminate glass, and glazed at the front only.
commercial frame. 101mm x 44.5mm. 10.38 clear lam.
Yesterday, we removed a window at a hairdresser which had been hit by a car.
A meranti 4 panel fixed lite, just under 5meters wide. 10.38 clear laminate glass was used.
Installed this window yesterday, very pleased as we managed to remove the old glass panes from the old sashes, and re-use them in the new window.
The day before we did this – a cedar sliding door and window. up in a horse farm. the view was lovely.
Cedar sliding window and door.
and earler on in the week we finished off some vent locks and 1 window for a job we had done a few months prior
brown aluminium single hung windows with timber surrounds.
We made 2 bifolds, and 2 doorframes with doubledoors (french doors) for this job at west lakes. the original windows were removed, and some required wall cuts too.
Client will render to the outside of our frames.
