Any special preparation requirements will be clearly indicated in your order documentation and reminded to you by the installation manager when the installation is being scheduled. 

If your Patio or French Door is being fitted into a full size existing opening - remove curtains, blinds and any other window/door furnishings. If other window or door items are being replaced you will be notified of the order that they will be replaced at scheduling, so there is no need to remove all coverings unless you have been told that your installation will be completed in a day. With prior arrangement, our fitting team can remove these items for you. 

We will always lay dustsheets in all areas that we have to access within the property and we will remove all our debris on completion. (which includes the old window frames, unless otherwise stated) 

It is a good policy to remove or cover pictures and ornamentation in the immediate vicinity of the window replacement to prevent dust coverage. The same would apply to T.V's, Stereo equipment, computers etc., 

Other preparatory works which may be required and indicated at time of contract exchange, could include:

  • creating new window opening 
  • install new supporting lintel
  • brick-up part of window to make it smaller
  • removal of brickwork below window

Items, such as phone lines, satellite dishes, alarm systems are best adjusted or moved by the contractor that installed them. If you have any doubt about an item please do not hesitate to discuss it with us.

PLANNING & BUILDING CONTROL

You require Planning Consent if your home is a Listed Building or is situated within a conservation area. Some buildings within a Conservation Area have less stringent requirements than others and some are not affected at all. You Local Council will advise you of your designation.

You require a Building Warrant if a structural change is being made, i.e.

  • creating new window opening
  • install new supporting lintel
  • brick-up part of window to make it smaller
  • removal of brickwork below window

Should any of the above be a requirement we can make application for approval to your Local Council on your behalf
