    Default Replace Aluminium Windows and Doors in Double Brick Wall

    Hi All,
    I am currently renovating a house near Mandurah, WA and want to replace the existing aluminum window frames with new ones as the previous owner tried to install window locks and basically bugged all of the frames.

    Is it even possible to replace the aluminum windows and doors in a double brick wall? If someone has done this, could you point me to a company in WA to contact for manufacturing the frames and getting them installed?

    Thanks for any help someone can provide...

    Yes I replaced my kitchen window as it was the wrong height when i reno'ed.
    I used HiLite Aluminum in Malaga. 9249 2234
    Very happy with them. I removed the old window for them.
    Whole new window installed was about $300.

    Awesome mate, since you confirmed it is possible, I will contact a few places and see how much I am looking at for the whole house.

    Cheers.

    Default trim

    I have a book called "trim" which is currently on sale (at least) in Dymocks Midland. It covers all sorts of interesting things including fitting windows, doors, skirting boards, chair rails, wainscoting
    .
    Worth a read.
