Laminate or double glazed Windows?

Actually the total thickness of glass makes the biggest difference in noise attenuation. Argon, gap size and laminate are just tweaks. So double glazing is a 2 fold benefit,…

They have stretched the seal as they fitted it, and it has shrunk back. No good enough, needs pointing out. They may try to seal the corners with silicone, but…

My double glazed windows fro China

Hi Mark,
The problem is guaranteeing that the window is tested to AS2047, and that the glass complies with AS1288, it's almost impossible without full traceability. I am certain many imported…

Hi
A&L Windows are builders' quality windows, so too are Dowell. There may be a difference or two, but not a lot.
Burbank use A&L exclusively.

Questions about windows and doors

Hi Jelena
I am rather biased. I started with PVC windows 12 years ago in Australia. We had problems of windows and doors not opening/closing etc. I discovered that the rate…

Windows always incur some damage to the powdercoat, and these are almost always repaired with a wetcoat paint (spraycan). Unless there are gouges or dents, then the spray can will be fine. In actual fact wetcoat paint has better longevity than powdercoat. Provided the job is done right.

pivot windows that can be cleaned from the inside

Very few casement windows have that feature. I can't name one. But Tilt and turn do the same thing, except flyscreens become a problem.

yes you need a builder to remove the bricks and prepare an opening, including a lintel.
We can make 6m, and we will install into a prepared opening.

Gaps in bricks around Windows/doors new build.

any news? How did it all go?
The gap around the window to the frame should be 20mm. A&L make windows to brick opening sizes. You should not need infills.
