In a typical 3-4 bedroom home having windows replaced upstairs and downstairs it typically takes our team around 5-8 days.
The tilt and turn window is also the easiest style of window to clean inside and outside, with the tilt and turn mechanism enabling the cleaning of all panes to be carried out from inside the property. Appropriate locks ensure safe opening and fixing of positions for cleaning and maintenance.

All Schnuaber timber windows are pre-treated with a non-toxic wood preservative which ensures that maintenance is kept to a minimum. Your wooden tilt and turn windows will require some level of maintenance every 5-10 years. Following regular maintenance, the product should have a life span of 60+ years.
Schnauber’s wooden tilt and turn windows are the safest option available if you have a young family or for the elderly as they can be fitted with a 100 mm restrictor limiting the risk of a fall from height.

If ease of maintenance is a primary requirement, such as in apartments or office blocks, tilt and turn windows are an ideal solution.
