    Hi All,

    I'm about to start fitting my residence 9 windows, and looking for others who have fitted them to avoid any mistakes. I have opted for the stub cill and as the supplied cills are for a 70mm profile what is the best way to secure / align, I also have the frame extender to fill the gap. Just looking for what screws / sealant and methodology others have used?

    Thanks in advance

    Pm me your email address I have a diagram I can send.
    Silicone up the last 3 chambers in the outside of the bottom of the frame to prevent water from the drainage channels getting into your walls.
    Seal the 2 ends of the cill and the back edge.
    60mm screws will do. You can use baypole screws or you can countersink in a normal screw. I would recommend stainless steel though.

    Due to the weight of the triple glazing units I am planning on removing the sashes......is this what you do?

    I have also noticed that the frames are not that rigid which in essence lets them move out of square slightly, I plan on using a framing square to true and pack out square when placed in the window opening, as this is essential to maintain the consistent gap between the sash and frame.

    Yes removing the sash's makes like much easier.
    I check the square with levels and measurements but a square will do the job too

    Do you remove the sash from the hinges or the hinges from the sash?

    I'm thinking about using the timco multifix as no plug is needed. Although keen to have window fitters opinions of how these perform in old brick work, these will be going into stock bricks from 1890's period which can be a little brittle and flaky.

    Consert
    Its just the brand that Eurocell sells as its where I get most of my ancillary's, Trims, Silicone, cleaning stuff, Screws etc
    Like most screws I expect they are pretty much the same and all come from one factory somewhere in China

    I have ordered some 60mm stainless baypole screws for the cill and extension. I assume you fix the extension to the frame and not the cill? Out of interest is there any particular type of silicone that is used in window fitting?

    LMA silicone (low modulus, Neutral cure).
    Are you talking about the internal cill extender like in the diagram I sent? If so that screws to the cill first. My suppliers do that in the factory.
