    Hi I have managed to get an ex showroom window for my garden workshop. It is Irish Oak PVC like Please login (registration is free!) to view this link.
    https://www.directwindowsanddoors.co.uk/product/upvc-casement-window-oak-1010x1190mm-top-hung/
    .

    It is 90 x 60cm.

    I am trying to source a UPVC window sill in the same colour. This is the kind of sill I need is this type which compliments the bottom drain of the window.

    I am looking for Irish Oak if anyone can help?

    Thanks

    Irish oak is a common foil, I would have thought a local double glazing firm could supply, although you different profile (frame) manufacturers have different extrusions for the cill to fix onto.
    As it's for your shed, you could just glue/screw it on.

    Could you of not got it from the company you got the window from? If not then any local dg company would sell you a metre length, tis just an off cut really, as it's just a shed it wouldn't pose a problem getting both to fit, you tend to put a bead of silicone on the cill before you sit the window on it anyway then just screw down through the frame into the cill, 100mm in from the corners though, saves putting too much stress on the welds

    The company that I got the ex showroom window from do have some old stock of Irish Oak Trims but don't stock sills in this colour.
    I'll take a look around - but we don't have a lot of choice ere in North Deben :)

    Try your local Eurocell branch. Unlikely they will have it in stock but should be able to get it in within a week

    I thought eurocell but as you know everything in this game comes in 5m lengths, don't think they sell cut sizes but worth a try

    True they probably would only do a 5m length
