Renovations of a double bow window

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

This particularly fine example of a double bow window manufactured and installed in the early 1950s was made by Crittal, who have been trading since 1849 originally in Braintree Essex. The steel windows are almost as good as the day they were made a testament to their quality, the cills were also surprisingly in a reasonable condition although each meeting joint had to be scarfed. The customer who was very pleased with the results was originally quoted over £25,000 for replacement! I came in at a fraction of that price,  There was absolutely no good reason to have these replaced, all they required was a’ birthday’ which will see them through for another 60yrs
