Frequently Asked Questions

What does Full Factory Finish mean?

  • Glass units are professionally factory installed and sealed. No site glazing is necessary.
  • Hardware and locks are pre-fitted and tested for operation in the factory.
  • All timber components are painted or stained using state-of-the-art paint lines - to your individual colour.
  • We only use water based micro-porous joinery industry evolved paints and stains to give the highest possible quality finish and durability. A process that can never be matched by hand decoration.

To sum up Factory Finished means that your windows are quality checked; fully prepared to install and ready to enjoy.
