Can I change the look of my windows?

There may be instances where you’d like to change the way an opening window is hinged? Maybe you’d like to remove the opening window altogether? Take a look at how you can transform the look of your home just by removing an opening window and replacing it with a fully glazed pane. Not only will the fully glazed panel provide an unobstructed view, but it can also be a much more cost-effective solution.

How do you install double glazing into existing aluminium windows?

We will remove the existing glass and replace it with new double glazed units. You will keep the look of your existing windows and gain the numerous benefits double glazing has to offer. The aluminium bead will be removed and replaced with one suitable for double glazing. More often than not the opening window will be replaced, along with the hinges stays and latches.

My old aluminium windows are dull and faded. Can they be restored to their former glory?

Customers are often concerned that replacing some parts of their existing aluminium windows will not tie in with the old due to faded sections of aluminium. There are a number of solutions available nowadays on the market that can revitalise your old, tired looking aluminium, bringing it back to its former glory. We trailed a DIY solution from Everbrite and wow what a difference. Take a look at the faded joinery around this set of French Doors. After 1 coat of the DIY solution, the frame came up like new. NOTE: The door panels and hinges were replaced. It was only the surrounding frame that was treated.
