Cracking Over Windows
A great informative article on the issues surrounding the damage caused by the replacement window industry, for too long disreputable replacement window companies have brushed this issue under the carpet, in a drive to deliver the lowest upfront prices to the customer.
Historically the less reputable replacement window companies suggested passing responsibility for the cost of repairs to the home insurers.
Most U.K home insurers will not fund remedial repairs due to structural defects caused by the removal of the original structural window frames.
We are delighted to report that some of the larger Double glazing companies are tackling this problem head on and installing Strucsol Lintels, prior to replacing the windows in affected properties.
