How can I get a quote?
It’s as easy as sending through your approximate measurements (height and width) of the windows/doors you’d like to replace, you can email them through to us with a description of what you’d like to replace them with, and your contact details including full name, contact number and property address. Our email address is firstname.lastname@example.org
If you’d prefer one of our friendly team members to help you with the measurements or offer you some advice about options, we also offer free on-site measure and quotes. Please call us on 03 9877 9577 to book an appointment.
Since every job is unique and measurements can vary, please note we do not give ‘ball park’ quotes or quotes over the phone.

I want to replace all my aluminium doors and windows, but not all at once.
No worries! We can stage your replacement, meaning we do certain sections of the house, or certain doors/windows at a time. For more information, speak to our team.
Is double glazing way more expensive than single glazing?
Most of our frames suit both single and double glazing, double glazing will not drastically increase the price. For more information, speak to our team.
Can you change my existing windows to double glazed?
No, most of the time window frames that are single glazed do not have the capability of holding double glazing, so if you’re wanting to double glaze your windows, you’ll more than likely need to replace the entire window, including the frame.
I have a window I want to turn into a door, is this something you do?
Yes, because it is difficult to determine what kind of work is required for these kinds of jobs without seeing them, we would need to book a free on-site appointment to come out and take a look. Please give us a call on 03 9877 9577 to book an appointment.
Do you make timber windows?
No, we are exclusively an aluminium window supplier.
Do you make round windows?
No, we do not manufacture rounded frames.
Do you do glass replacement?
No, we do not do glass replacement. Broken glass that is not faulty is not covered under warranty and will need to be replaced by a glass replacement service
Do you do repairs?
As we are a window manufacturer, we do not offer a repair service for issues with windows/doors or other manufacturers products. This excludes issues which are covered under warranty.
If you have a query that we haven’t covered here – please give us a call or send us an email. We are more than happy to discuss your requirements with you.
