Bay window installation Essex project 1

Location of job:

Basildon Essex.

What was replaced:

A total of 5 windows were replaced.  One involves replacement of a bay window.  A new front door was also installed.

This bungalows soffits and guttering was replaced too.  However, this was completed before the window installations.

Details of the work carried out:

We recently carried out a double glazing job in Basildon Essex.  The team first replaced an old aluminium framed bay window.  A brand new uPVC 6 paneled double glazed window was fitted.  The new window was rated A for thermal efficiency.  We then replaced 3 casement aluminium framed windows for new uPVC windows.  Each of these windows was A rated too.

Finally we replaced an old uPVC front door for a composite one.  All windows and doors were screwed in securely.  High quality insulating foam was used to seal any gaps.  We finished off with cladding and mold resistant silicone sealant.  The job was then signed of by building control.  The customer says it is much warmer in his house now.

The old bay aluminium framed window used to suffer from condensation.  This was due to worn seals resulting in water leaks.  Aluminium frames are not a great insulator either.  This creates a cold surface for moisture to condensate on.  The new bay window looks great and will last for many years to come.

When we removed the cladding above the old bay window, we was shocked to find no insulation within the cavity.  Before fitting the new cladding we ensured there was celotex insulation installed.

Images of work carried out:

Below is an image of the old aluminium framed bay window.  The cladding above is constructed from wood.  Behind this wood was a hollow cavity.

The bay window above was completely removed.  We then fitted a new bay window.  This is shown in the image below.  We installed celotex insulation behind the new cladding.
