Windows and doors are probably two of the most vital components of a home or building. Windows give us light but also insulation and protection from the elements. Doors give us privacy and protection from the weather and intruders. Aside from these compulsory features and characteristics doors also serve as aesthetic features with a massive variety of styles and materials. Doors can be made from wood, uPVC, vinyl, and aluminum. They can also have windows to either side and a glass insert or design in the door itself. There are literally thousands of ideas and designs of doors and windows in the world, made from a variety of optional materials as well as many colors and patterns.
Full-Frame and Partial Frame Installations

The window that is chosen to fill the hole is usually a full framed window which encompasses the frame and the glass as well as the sashes. The complete window is set into the gap and fixed into place. Partial installations include new sashes, component parts and new glass.
