I filmed another 60-minute makeover a few weeks ago where we fitted shutters for a programme in the new series which will be on air later in the year.
Having done a number of TV show I am starting to feel like an old hand. However, this was the first time I have fitted a double glazed angled bay window on a 60MM show, as many of the windows we have done in the past are straightforward.
While fitting shutters to an angled bay window is one of the most popular things I do, and one of the most popular windows among diy customers as well, it’s not the quickest of tasks when they are double glazed. It takes a while to fit the battens/subframe into which the actual shutter frame is screwed, so this time there was a great deal more to prepare and to actually squeeze into the 60MM. Of course, we did it within the time, but I have to say we had to work quickly, and I was glad to have one of my long-term fitters Richard with me just to make sure we managed it.
I will, of course, be adding pictures of the 60MM to the showroom online, and there is a range of advice on the site regarding this type of window. If you want to save and opt for DIY, don’t be put off by what might initially appear to be a difficult window, I have helped a large number of DIY customers successfully fit shutters onto this type of window and am always happy to talk you through it.
