Windows are available in a variety of designs and sizes. There are differences in opening mechanisms and structure, as well as the type of glass they contain. Our window fitters can fit this types of windows: UPVC casement windows, wooden casement windows, curved windows, bay windows, bow windows, sash windows, pivot windows and awning windows and in terms of mechanisms, we can fit windows with this type of opening mechanisms: butt hinge, weights and balances, pivots and friction hinge.
The fitting of a window depends on wall type and window design. In many situations, the installation is quite similar. To replace the window, first we remove the old one, fitting the new window sill, positioning the new window, fixing the frame and finishing the job. Fixing windows in timber-framed walls does not require plugs for the framework fixings. Some manufacturers produce windows with fixing flanges around the edge of the window specially designed for use in timber-framed buildings.
However, a replacement of a sash window with any kind of window may not be allowed in a conservation area, and even if you are not in a conservation area, be aware that original windows can sometimes add value to your property, in which case you may have to take in consideration just making good the existing ones. We will help you stripping off the old paint and apply a new fresh coat of paint or to replace the cords.
