Current Featured Question
Q. We are in the process of having double glazing fitted and I am concerned that the unit that has gone into the living room bay is not going to be strong enough to support the sloping roof above it. When the old window was removed the bay roof sagged very noticeably at one corner. Surely both the window fitters and the chap who did the original survey should have anticipated that this might have happened? The unit is now in place but a temporary support has been put in until an angled support can be fitted.
The original window (Georgian style) must have had a support frame, so should the new window have been built the same way?
A. In England / Wales all replacement window installation are subject to building regulation approval or in most cases are covered by the FENSA self certification scheme.
In particular they are subject to the PART A1 - Structure part of building regulations:
When installing new windows or doors an assessment should be undertaken by the contractor as to the suitability of the support of lintel above the replacement window or door.
It sounds like you need to clarify these issues with your supplier very quickly. Its not a case of getting a reduction in price, its a case of getting the job done correctly.
