Altus windows news update

This article was added on Monday 13 March 2017

Just a bit of an update on our whereabouts.

 

Conservatories are proving to be really popular at present with people extending and adding to their properties instead of moving house.

We are still fitting many front and back doors too, mainly Composite and Rockdoors.

Anthracite Grey is hugely popular at present as is Black and Chartwell Green however we do offer a wide choice of colours and even fitted a bright yellow front door and a rasberry pink cottage style last month that both looked really striking.

If you are unable to find the appropriate colour on the website then please do ask as we can normally manage to accomodate you.

Something we do offer which people seem to like is the number of your property etched into the glass.

It can either be at the side of the door or above the door if you have a panel. There are some examples of this on our facebook page too.

The majority of our work is still fitting lovely new windows.  There is much more variety now than there used to be with colours, glass patterns and fancy handles etc so people can be more creative with their properties and ideas.

There is a lot of positive feedback and reviews on our facebook page as customers seem to find it easier to comment there. So if you would like a bit more information about us then please check out our page.

Cavity tray installation

Photo: Cavity tray installation

This is a relatively straightforward job to do, if the person doing it has the necessary equipment and experience!

Several rows of bricks are removed, and a solid tray is inserted into the cavity, creating a barrier that water cannot get through.

To allow the trapped water to escape a "Weep vent" is inserted between two bricks to expel the unwanted water.

Once the new bricks have been laid it is almost invisible, but stays there doing the essential job of keeping the damp out!

Why a cavity tray is essential before a conservatory is plastered

This article was added on Tuesday 17 January 2012

Photo: Why a cavity tray is essential before a conservatory is plastered

Why is it that some consevatorys have a musky smell when you first enter? There is a very good chance that there is moisture trapped behind the plasterboard on the origional house wall.

Why? The outer skin of a cavity wall is almost always porous, the mortar joints and indeed most bricks will alow a very small amount of moisture threw. This travels down the rear face of the brick until it reaches the ground (under the damproof course of the house) this then harmlessly soaks away. If however it reaches an obstacle ie. window or door it will soak into what it hits (this is why windows tend to be a little damp around the corners). Alternatively when it runs over dry brick it will get soaked up like water in a sponge! this is where the musky smell in the conservatory comes from!

Here is a picture of this proccess happening.

Take a look at our next artical to see the solution...
