How much will it cost me? 2018-07-03T02:59:02+00:00

In estimating the cost of a job a number a variables need to be considered. These include:

  • Age of property
  • Paint respraying both sides or 1 side only
  • Condition of existing frames and hardware
  • Degree of oxidation or peeling powder coat surfaces
  • Access to exterior of windows
  • Access to interior windows & doors
  • Need for new screens or restore existing

To restore all windows and doors in a typical 3 to 4 bedroom suburban home, most estimates are in the range of 1.5% to 2.0%* of a property’s value. With essentially new windows in a modern colour, that also work like new after our maintenance treatment, properties can rise in value to many times the initial investment. Of course these improvements also provide significant lifestyle benefits.

(* This will vary depending upon size, design and location of the home).

If you don’t want all windows in your house restored we can do selected ones only. You also have a choice of respraying only the outside or we can do both inside and out. With all window painting jobs, we carry out necessary maintenance so the restored windows and doors work like new as well as look like new.

Our process is described in “Full Restoration”. Our experienced team carry out the work efficiently and with far less inconvenience and fuss than the major work of ripping out old and installing new windows.

Q: Do you remove the old windows from site? 2018-06-12T08:06:52+00:00

A: No all work is done on site. Sliding panels & screens are removed from the frames and painted on a work station set up on the property. All fixed frames are done in-situ.

Q: What happens with the old window screens? 2018-06-12T08:06:20+00:00

A: If we are quoting on a full restoration, we can respray or replace the existing screens. If replacing, you can chose between simply fly screens, diamond grill security screens or our stainless mesh Supashield security screens.  Existing screens are remeshed
