This is our story

It all began with a conversation between two friends, John from Tasmania and Colm who had recently moved from Ireland.

Before coming to Australia, Colm had spent years manufacturing and supplying seals to the window and door industry in Ireland and the UK.

“Why are Australians happy to live with rattly, old, draughty windows…? No one in Ireland would put up with the wind howling through their home…!” proposed Colm.

“Australians want better performing old wooden windows. At least they would, if someone could help them,” replied John in a light bulb moment.

What started as a simple cup of coffee back in 2011, has led us to become Australia’s largest repairer of old timber windows and doors.

What to expect from us

Our team of specialist carpenters and glazing experts will typically work on a few windows at a time.

We’ll start by removing the window sashes and assessing the condition of the window and the frame. From here we’ll repair or replace any damaged timberwork. This can be a major job if significant rot or damage is found.

Next, we will install the ultra-high performance glass (if you have selected this as a part of your job).

While the window is out of the frame, we also overhaul the window hardware as necessary to ensure the restored window operates smoothly, with a light touch. This includes checking and improving things like the cords, weights, balances and pulleys.

As the window goes back into the frame, we install the draught seals. This includes any fine-tuning needed to ensure the window is sealed tightly, whilst opening and closing smoothly.

Where needed, we’ll ensure the window is ready for paint (by your painter).
