Retro Double Glazing Aluminium Inserts Into Timber Joinery.
What We Do.
We use your existing timber framing.
The opening and non-opening sashes are removed permanently from the timber window frame.
This is a good time to change the layout of your windows, and this can be done by removing any transoms and mullions from the timber window frame.
Transom - Is a horizontal bar, or a crosspiece separating two sashes.
Mullion - Is a vertical bar separating two sashes.
The insert aluminium windows are then installed into the primed timber frame. Sealing of frames and any remaining glass is fitted to complete the frame install . Existing flashing around the timber framing aren't interfered with in this process.
Timber Window - Prior Modifications.
Timber Window - Post Modifications.
How We Do It.
On acceptance of the quote the aluminium insert windows will be made to your specifications. Between the ordering of the materials till they're ready to install could be between three to five weeks depending on production schedules.
Once windows are ready to be installed you will be contacted and a installation date agreed.
On the installation date we will arrive with the windows ready to be installed. We will remove the existing sashes and make any modifications to the timber framing and then fully install the window before moving onto any other windows in order to ensure the house isn't exposed to the weather.
