Double Brick

 

Accurate measurement of your old window opening is crucial when installing double glazed windows and double glazed doors. Custom-built uPVC double glazed windows cannot be returned if ordered incorrectly, so our trained technicians will take their own measurements before manufacturing in Sydney. This ensures precision for all replacement windows and doors, with most manufactured to a +/-2 mm accuracy for the best fit.

For the installation and glazing of our energy efficient windows and doors, we recommend using qualified technicians like window installers and glaziers, or experienced builders. While we do provide double glazed windows and doors on a supply-only basis for DIY enthusiasts, self-installation or work by independent tradespeople can sometimes compromise the quality of our products. For example, not properly covering or filling large gaps between the wall and window can reduce the noise insulation and energy efficiency.

Please note that we are not responsible for incorrect installation if it was not performed by our team. We suggest contacting the party who installed your windows and doors for any issues.

We have a strong track record of fixing poor installations of double glazed windows and doors, even those supplied by competitors, although a fee applies for this service based on job complexity and quantity. We also offer consultation services for builders unfamiliar with uPVC windows.

Our experience has led to the creation of avoid-a-DIY-disaster installation tips. This information is meant as suggestions based on our experience rather than a step-by-step guide for installing double glazed windows or doors. Each installation may have unique challenges requiring expert knowledge and experience to resolve, so while we aim to provide accurate information, please do not rely on it completely.

Before starting, verify the size, style, and position of the window against the order. A perfectly installed double glazed window is problematic if upside-down or meant for another room. Since uPVC windows are not load-bearing, a lintel may be required above the window. If unsure, consult a qualified fitter or surveyor. The new window should be about 10 mm smaller in height and width than the brick opening. Clear the installation site by removing curtains, blinds, ornaments, etc.
