Expert Information

Hi
I used to refute every piece of false information about windows, double glazing, low-E, SHGC etc in the forum. You will find an answer to almost everything somewhere in my…

Awning window & seals - any obvious issues?...

I can't follow you. I can see drainage where I would expect it, the water is dirty presumably from building.

I think your door needs replacing as the veneer is coming off and I think you won't be able to repair it successfully as it is very thin veneer.

The frames look good where you can see the grain, the thicker paint is OK if it doesn't foul the operation of the window, otherwise, yes, sand them back, but…

I agree with Arcadelt.

Dimensions for a replacement window

You're welcome
I have no interest in your requirement, but, your risks are
Breakage on delivery
Incorrect size
Incorrect glass
UV stability (PVC)

You will need brick ties to attach the new window to the brickwork.
Is that a cement render on the inside? If so,…

Window pricing

A 2400 wide panel requires a crane, and that can add $1000 - $2000 (assuming 2100+ height). Plus the glass will be thicker, which may require the frame to be…

Otherwise, best guess would be to measure your existing window on the outside, and yes, subtract 5mm (total) HxW. Just make sure that your opening is…

We sell all over Australia. But we cannot provide service support outside Victoria, only spare parts.

This is normal for windows with architraves. The gap is intended and is used to square the window and make it operable. There needs to be a packer behind…
