|Attic and Bay window before|
If you look closely at the above picture the secondary double glazing in the bay window is damaged and the window frames on both windows are deteriorating badly and in need of painting.
Once work on the window fitting was complete and weather permitting of course I then hired a painter/decorator to spruce up the window frames and sills to blend in with the new windows, what a result, as good as new.
To complete the look at the front of the property I then decided to revamp the garden and to remove the old cracked paving slabs and replace them with a gravel pathway beneath the bay window. The plan was to recycle the gravel by using to cover the newly laid liner on the pathway and then to fill the plant borders to assist in keeping the soil moist. The final stage was to dig the garden over and lay a new liner which would have a deep cover of plum slate.
