Bay Window Repair

Finished Product, Work in progress

A dog had chewed the colonial bars of the window. We had been asked by insurance to replace this section of the bay window.

This sash had rotted and no longer was operable. Again we were asked to replace this section of the bay window.

Old sash / New sash!

After a hell of a lot of care to remove the existing center frame from the above timber paneling. Same on inside – we managed to keep all the decorative beading on the inside. New panel in, cover plates replaced.

New awning sash in place too.

Back for 2020

Finished Product, Uncategorized, Work in progress

Well we have been back to work after the Christmas break – George and I since Jan 8th, and the rest of our staff on the 23rd.

Whilst I have been uploading more pictures through Instagram, I must admit I’ve been a bit lax on our website here.  Here are some of the things we have been up to – I could post a lot more, but I need to get back to glazing some sashes.

here is hoping to a successful and happy 2020 for all.

Some cedar casement windows complete and ready to be picked up

here is the new window, western red cedar.

Scissor winders + stays and latches for the hardware.

Here you can see one of the other windows, internal view. Notice the scissor winder hardware. Top panels of glass obtained from the wonderful team at the Glass Emporium, as per clients request.

 

In our factory, we are running up door stiles for assembly. Notice; full timbers (not blocks glued together with a veneer) and mortice + tennon joins. In the background you can see the solid 150×50 EX WRC timber pack which is how it all starts out.

Today we installed 8.76 OBSERVA glass into c-channel framing we had put up a few days earlier.  It is in a medical clinic. the staff can see into the patients room, without the patients unable to see back into their office.

8.76 observa glass

this type of glass works best when you have a dark internal room, looking out into a bright room.
