Frequently Asked Questions
In terms of your site, we will need to make sure that the openings are prepared in a right way. i.e. sliding doors have to have the opening levelled up; also, if you prefer to have the threshold sunk, we will make sure you will get all the necessary details on its dimensions.
While you are waiting for the windows to be supplied, you can make sure to provide us with the most important information such as confirming the site location and your contact number, along with other additional information which may help along the way, for example if your road has sufficient access for HGV’s or LGV’s, this can have an effect on the type of vehicle we use to deliver your goods. If you happen to be absent during the items collection time, please let us know as soon as possible so we can rearrange transport.
Curved windows have a few types. The choice of the right style determines the final look of the house. By curved window, also known as radius windows, we understand a window that has a certain profile bending radius, not arched windows. Arched windows are a separate window type, which we also manufacture; they have an arched top. Bay windows can be made as radius windows, or standard straight ones.
Curved windows have bent profiles and curved glazing. We manufacture windows and doors in various systems, including timber, aluminium and steel, so the answer to this question will not be straightforward. Different materials vary in price, but in general, curved windows are more expensive than the standard ones. We will choose together the best system and material for your project, so contact us, and tell us more about the windows you are looking for. The most economical option for your standard bay or oriel bay, would be to use standard window. You can see the example here: LINK.
