Aqua seals.

A rebate can be machined around the edge of a wooden window to accommodate Aqua seals. Fitting an Aqua seal will eliminate most if not all draughts and save money in the long run on energy costs. The seals can protrude up to 8mm from the edge of the window so any gaps are filled. These should not be confused with the stick on foam tape which compresses over  a short period of time making them almost completely ineffective.  

I have also fitted Aqua seals to front and back doors with the same effect. They also reduce outside noise from penetrating the home.

Traditional standards. Traditional tradesman. Traditional service. I have been a carpenter for over 45years, 5 year apprenticeship as a boat builder, 2 years as a wood machinist, then a spell repairing furniture and manufacturing reproduction antique clocks. I spent a further 15 years working in a therapeutic environment passing on my skills, before setting myself up as a self-employed carpenter/joiner. As you will appreciate, I undertake a wide range of projects, so scrolling through the site map may well direct you to past work that may be similar to your requirements. The preferred way to contact me is by using the contact page on this site. However you can always ring me during normal working hours. Lead times vary depending on the time of year; small jobs I can often do promptly. I cover Southampton and I am also happy to visit Winchester and Salisbury areas, but a small fee will be charged.
