I have planning permission to remove an old hardwood conservatory and build a new "garden room" extension.
....but first I need to replace my Patio door (house to conservatory)... It is old and tired and would not be secure when work starts...
So job is to identify and install an aluminium door into the existing hardwood frame (which is "as new, and will not be replaced).
One days work for one guy.... measure, find a product online (which I purchase), and we install. (Say £250 labour for a day)....
NOT after an expensive patio door (just fully secure)... as the new extension will have 6+mts of bi-fold doors, plus a lot of glass windows / velux or lanterns etc..... So I may well change the patio door out again at that point).
the doors were fitted in 2011 and have not worked properly for a couple of years. I think they have dropped and need to be properly readjusted. the Handel may also need to be changed as it was replaced by the original company for the wrong one.
door is actually internal. we need old, broken, pane of glass removed and a new one cut and fitted into wooden door. new pane is approx 20cm by 80cm
ideal time for work to be done would be Friday 20th in the morning or Sunday 22nd anytime
In need someone who will take measurements of all windows before ordering and will then install them and And replace internal linings, where required, with decorative timber architraves. Measurements to be taken ASAP with installation in circa 6 weeks. Also need 2 doors ordering and installing.
The budget doesn’t include the windows themselves...
The work that needs carrying out is as follows:
1)Remove old wooden window and mdf Shelving inside next to existing window.
2)Supply and install Bigger Window 1000 Wide x 1340
3)Build Timber Frame around window.
4)Insulate inside Timber with Celotex Insulation Board.
5)Plasterboard Installed to inside of Timber Frame, skimmed With Plaster & Made good inside with PVC Trims.
We have 3 bay windows and 2 large hall/landing windows we need replacing as the wood is rotten. They are also currently only single paned and we would like double.
All our other windows are sash and they are currently being refurbished.
I'm not sure who to contact but we have an indoor cat and we need to have something installed in 4 window openings so that we can have the windows open without the concern of the cat leaping out! I am aware that you can buy ready made mesh which fasten to the frame with Velcro but have been advised that these may not be good enough. I would be interested if you could offer a solution or point me in the right direction.
