Is there any risk of damage during the installation process?
Windows in residential construction are usually installed during the brickwork stage of construction, after the house has been built around the frames. In addition, internal plastering or external rendering works are often completed after the windows and door frames are installed. This makes the removal process quite technical . We need to assess exactly the best process and sequence for removal, for example, where to cut, where to push and where to pull!
Wet areas can be particularly challenging as tiles are usually laid over the window frame itself and require cutting to remove the frame while at the same time preserving the integrity of the wall finishes that need to remain in place after the new window installation. This is just one element of the installation process that makes each project unique. Our renovation team will discuss any areas of concern with you at the site consultation.
Post-installation remedial works are not common, and our standard installation takes into account every possible element we can reasonably foresee in order to leave you with a quality finish that you can stand back and admire, without seeing where we’ve been!
There is always the possibility of the unforeseeable exception, however. For example, any defects from the workmanship of past trades can present once the removal process disturbs the surrounding areas, or we may see something that requires your attention that is outside our scope of work, such as rusty steel columns, vermin or asbestos. Our Remove & Replace partners will always raise these points for discussion as soon as they are noticed.
