Quality timber windows can make all the difference to the look and feel of a property.
If its an older home then the style should be in keeping and match the rest of the house.
The range of different types, sizes and configurations is endless and getting the right balance between cost and style can be difficult.
We manufacture all combinations of awning, casement, fixed, bungalow and sliding sash windows possible and offer advice on how to get what you want at the best price.
Double glazing should be a serious consideration, as the best time to double glaze is at manufacture.
There are a number of considerations when selecting a timber window
Bathroom windows usually need obscure / safety glass fitted.
Bedroom windows need opening sashes for ventilation.
The cost of a window is dictated by the number of components (i.e. the number of sashes).
Windows can be side hung (usually on the outer frame side) with hinges or top hung with either hinges or friction stays.
Double glazing or single glazing is available.
If a window is below 700mm from the floor it will need safety glass on the inside.
The cost for a fixed sash or opening sash is the same.
The cost of a window is almost totally dependant on the number of components that are included. A single sash window is the simplest and cheapest to manufacture whilst a six sash window, of a similar size, will be considerably more expensive. A typical bathroom window with obscure / safety glass fitted would be around $550 +GST for single glazed and $700 +GST for double glazed.
What is a sash?
A timber sash is the wooden frame which holds the glass in place (either single or double glazing). It can be an opening sash or a fixed (in position) sash. the sash is fitted into the window frame.
