Aluminium Casement Windows

Post by Preve88 on Fri Nov 23, 2012 10:12 pm

I'm thinking of changing my living hall windows to a thicker grade white aluminium frames as the ones given by the developer was not properly fitted with big gaps even when closed. My unit is a corner unit & the rain would always pelt against the windows. Quite often the water will seep into my unit through the badly fitted joints of the frames. Anyone knows of any contractors who can do this job?

I'm not sure u're supposed to change the windows as it will affect the facade of the condo. But then, if your windows are leaking then it has to be repaired or changed somehow. Best to check with management!

Has anyone heard of UPVC window frames. Supposed to have better sound insulation & heat/cold retention qualities. Maybe if we are allowed to change, we can do bulk buy!!

bro, agreed with Sixer as we not suppose to change any facade look...current alumn frame is natural annodised finish & what you mentioned is UPV(1st time I heard got such material!) which are hard plastic like rain water down pipe materials...also this material strength is not there, fragile after exposed to extreme weather...

i think not only your unit having the leaking problem throught the poor installed window in living room. perhaps u can try to place some silicon along the frame & wall but access is very limited... Sad

UPVC window frames not so common here but when i was studying & working in UK it was very common there. Think there are very few companies in msia that supplies it. It actually offers better security as the material is more rigid than alloy frames & made to withstand weather, but not sure cos here not many ppl use it.

http://www.garlightglass.com/products_details.asp?id=17

Anyway i was thinking if we can change the window frames if we use back same configuration for the windows like present ones. Want to change it to the white anodised ones with thicker frames & better noise/weather insulation. Really kenot tahan all the water seeping into the living hall anymore. I tried using sealant on joints but i didn't help cos water just finds its way through another spot!!! Crying or Very sad

bro, look like not only your house having leaking prob at living area...
did u see any crack line either internally & external? if the water seepage between window frame & wall, do you see any water stained mark internally?
my suggestion is, work with office to arrange sky-lift(if not mistaken RM600/day, share cost among the affected units) to do a layer of waterproofing coat, seal the gaps all round the window frames & repainting... Surprised

Dunno about Preve, but i wouldn't mind hiring a skylift if we can get a few owners who are experiencing the same leaky problem. But provided that i'm allowed to change the window frames to thicker ones. Of course we would have to follow the facade & cut of the present windows for uniformity. No point just keeping the developer given ones as they don't close properly with big gaps!

bro, u are having the same prob as well? first thing is to determine where is the water coming from? wil it possible due to the harden gasket(rubber) of the window? Shocked

Mine is not so bad although water still seeps in when there's heavy rain. BUt if given a choice I would like to change the windows to better quality ones (the ones in white) for noise insulation & aesthetic reasons. Some of my windows don't shut properly now with big gaps & the wind even comes through it!

bro, i guess your window cannot shut properly is due to loosening handle...this can be easily kaw tim. Unscrew the 2 screws, tightern the 1 hidden screw at the back of the handle, screw back the 2 screws & your window will be very tight... Razz

It's really raining very heavily now. This is the first time i see rain pelting so hard against my windows. Looks like the wind is blowing hard against the back of Sierra. Hoping that my windows don't start leaking! pale
