Window sill is replace.

The old sill and rotten wood is removed from the frame and I packet in the parts of the frame that had go rotten with new timber. I then cut down to size a treated 3×4 inch timber, giving a slop away from the window and cutting a grove on the under side for water dispersal. I then use wooden trim around the glass and sealed with frame sealant. The sill was screwed on from inside the window using 120 mm screw.

Rottern wood is removed and the old sill.

Drive way new foundation applied.

The drive had a soil/clay base and was subsiding through use. The solution was to dig a 650mm deep

by 350mm wide trench the length of the drive and fill with foundation concrete. This would stop further subsidence and give support to the paving slabs. Job completed in 3.5 days.
