Some of Our Window Installation Essex Projects
Project 1. Casement & Bay Window Installation Essex
This project was carried out in Basildon Essex. Our highly skilled team first replaced the old aluminium framed bay window. Once removed, a new uPVC 6 panel double glazed window was fitted. This new window was rated A for thermal efficiency. The 3 casement aluminium framed windows were also replaced for new uPVC ones, each being A rated too.
An old uPVC front door was also replaced, but for a composite one. All windows and doors were screwed in securely. High quality insulating foam was used to seal any gaps. Cladding was finished with mold resistant silicone sealant. All windows and doors were then signed of by building control. The customer was very happy with the job, and could not believe how much warmer their home feels.
The old aluminium bay window suffered from condensation, mainly due to worn seals which created water leaks. It is possible that the aluminium frame inself contributed towards condensation too, as they are not a good insulator. Poor insulating materials generally create a cold surface, which increases the chances of moisture condensing on it. The new bay window looks great and will last for many years to come.
When the cladding above the old bay window was removed, we was shocked to find no insulation within the cavity. Before fitting the new cladding, we made sure there was celotex insulation installed.
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.
Bay Window Before
The aluminium bay window below was completely removed.
Bay Window After
Below is the new uPVC bay window we installed. This is shown in the image below. We installed celotex insulation behind the new cladding.
Insulating around the Bay Window
Walls around the bay window were single skin only. We improved the thermal properties of this bay by insulating the single skin wall it sits on. In addition, fibre glass wool insulation was also fitted inside the ceiling above it. Our efforts to insulated around this bay window payed off, because it has prevented damp from forming on the internal walls. Read this article for a step by step guide to bay window insulating
Installation of new Casement Windows
Below is an image of a casement window that was installed. This window has dummy sashes on the outside to ensure all window panes are inline.
