    Euro cylinder lock sizing

    Is your door wood or uPVC? If uPVC it will either be 60 or 70mm thick plus your backplates. To answer your question, a 37.5/37.5 euro barrel is not available a 40/40 is the closest. If using anti-snap, a small amount protruding is ok as this is part of the sacrificial element of the barrel.

    Green round window seal

    The green is algae - same as I've got on the glass channels of my 4 year old Fiesta window rubbers. Water will get between the outside gasket and the glass outer face- it's designed to do that - just drains away through the face drains or into the cill. If the window is north facing, the problem...

    New Double Glazed Bay window 'pings' in the night

    If your window was installed using Baypoles (aluminium tubes clad in uPVC) the fitter will have fixed through the frames using a baypole screw to attach window to pole to window etc. These are usually a self-driller and tie the whole bay together. I'm thinking [i]maybe[i] a screw hasn't caught...

    Cill end caps from roofline products for the end caps and a 28mm Dmould return back to the wall would probably sort it.

    Advice on removal of front door ?

    I would take the frame hinges off personally, all the adjustment is on the sash and no further adjustment should be needed when you re-hang it. Just treat it as though you are hanging a wooden internal door. The screws, I believe are Phillips 2, which is pretty standard in the door and window...

My client has low end windows...

    1 door 2 doorframes??

    As stated, it could be done quite easily but you'd have to use a roller catch instead of a tubular latch as the door closes from both its front and back faces.
