Hi Alex

Building with Wisdom Homes

Most garages have a single brick wall and a square set reveal would make no sense.

They are $2.25 each, so it may be better to try one first. We are in Hallam, can you pick up?

I was expecting you to say that your window opens and closes better now.
Let me know.
Our plastic guides may fit.

Sliding door mounted into floor (no step)?

As this area is totally sheltered, you would not need any drainage at all. But yes, you can drain under a deck.

Sometimes the builder will remove these if the sash is binding, which is usually where the out of square problem starts to cause trouble. As your frame is out…

The black square is a guide, to keep the sash clear of the jamb, and to keep it centralised.

For some reason, the frame is not square... and the sash being hinged at the head seems to have slid to the left hand side. Perhaps the guide blocks are…

Any flyscreen supplier can fit flyscreens around the chainwinder... so I would go with that. Price say $40-$50 each.

EcoClassic Windows will not, on their own, go out of square. These are silicone glazed and that bonds the glass and the aluminium together.
