    Default Aluminium windows repairs

    The builder's report says:
    There were no condensation channels or drain holes at the base of any of the windows. Some minor damage to the paintwork of the windows sills has occurred as a result of no condensation channels.

    So I want to know how much roughly cost to fit condensation channels and drain holes?

    Cheers guys

    See if you can find the manufacturer and ask them for advice - I don't know if you can 'fit' them after. Inside the frame may have a name.

    Thanks, seems that no one has had a similer exp here. Will ask the manufacturer.

    Unlikely that there is any standard fitting and drain holes will probably be impossible to put in. If they can make a decent condensation channel for you to attach, it should solve your problem.

    Yeah, the solution would based on the cost. I'm thinking hrv or dvs would be the solution if the repairing cost is high.
