Replacement Windows  - Questions and Answers

Here we feature some of the most common questions in Ask an Expert along with our replies.

To help you with navigation we have split the questions into section headings.

*** NEW ***

As this website has grown its started to produce more questions than most of our team of experts have time to answer. We have therefore decided to partner with our "sister" site - in order to provide a larger potential source of replies to your questions. In future all Ask an Expert questions should be submitted there. 

In the meantime we will retain all the answers to previous questions within these pages. Please note: Most of the answers we feature here are from 1999 - early 2002. We endeavour to keep all links etc up to date, however if you spot any errors please let our webmaster know at It should also be noted that some replies may change in light of changes to legislation especially with regards to Planning Permission and Building Regulations.

To submit a question visit the discussion forums at by clicking here. Alternatively click on the banner below: - Fast answers to your home improvement questions - click here

Our "team" of experts will still be able to answer questions via the service.

A few things before we start

Whilst I cannot guarantee to answer every question submitted I or one of my colleagues will try to answer as many as possible and will post the most frequently asked questions here.

Our Lawyers insist that we must point out our disclaimer, please note it's contents, Thank You.
We have added a Miscellaneous USA questions section. Here we have answers to questions with a specific US "flavour". US visitors will however find value in reviewing the other question sections also.
