Newtown Renovations - Edinburghs Sash and Case specialist
F.A.Q - Frequently Asked Questions about our Windows
Q: What do you do to the window that make it any different to other window companies ?
A : We burn the window case, most companies don't do that, they opt to plane down the side of the sash to make it slide, but if you ever get your windows burnt back in the future you will have problems with too much side play on the window. We also burn the sill back so once the window is painted you have crisp clean painted surface.
Q: I have three windows in my window bay, does this count as one window when they are getting renovated?
A: No, it counts as three.
Q: I see from your quote that you have priced for brass ironmongery can I have a choice?
A: Yes, you can have it in chrome or satin finish.
Q: What is a sash eye?
A: It is a ring that goes on the top of the sash, so you can pull the window down with a pole.
Q:Can you repair shutters?
A : Yes we can repair or replace them.
Q :What are simplex hinges ?
A: They are brass hinges that are fitted on the baton rod to make the bottom sash swing in for cleaning.
Q: What test are done to confirm your draught proofing is as good as you say.
A:The seals conform to BS 6375 and BS 7386, the British standard for draughtproofing new and existing windows.
