We’ve often found that our customers like to time their window replacements to coincide with other works to minimise disruption. Occasionally, we’d even find that the customer had unknowingly contracted multiple people to do the same work! For this reason, we created a ‘Basic Fitting’ service (in this case, basic casement replacement), whereby we do the absolute minimum level of service in order to allow other contractors to complete the making good of the plasterwork, the painting, the pointing, and any other services across the whole property. This allows your contractors to work without stepping on each others toes, keeping your building works as smooth and hassle free as possible.
Our basic casement replacement service is as follows:
- Remove existing window frames & sashes.
- Supply & fit new frames with double glazed window sashes – New frames & sashes will be manufactured from engineered, finger jointed laminated timber and be preservative & fungicide treated.
- New windows will be supplied with polished chrome handles & multipoint locking systems. Additional hardware finishes available on request.
