Hi guys, I'm new to this and I'm in need of help. Whilst I was away, my mother decided to convert our garage into a studio for my sister. I got back home to realise where the window is in the studio it hasn't been done properly.
I need advice on what I can do to rectify the situation.

It looks like the beading was missed. That's a rough job. Could you trim it a little and slot some beading in?

I think I will have too. Although I'm not such an expert in this. What is the white plastic that leads into the window frame?

How do I add beading to this with the shape of the plastic?

What is it with p1$$ poor 'tradesmen' these days? :cussing: That's really is a bad job so if it wasn't done that long ago I'd get the installer back to put it right. If that's not possible, go to a local upvc supplier and like KT says, get a beading that will cover the gap and meet nicely with the existing upvc.

It's just a upvc trim. Lots out there but it's just lazy work by the installer.

I'm not known for pulling my punches, I'm a straight talking northerner. What annoys me is that the installer has done the job and happily accepted payment knowing he'd left it like that.

Unfortunately too many so called tradesmen do these days. I don't know why so many people let them get away with it - perhaps us Brits are too soft :oops:

As a handyman I wouldn't dream of leaving a job like that. My reputation means more to me than a fast buck
