Should a large pvc window have double brickwork support?
My builder had taken patio doors out and put a window in its place. Originally in the wall it had double brick but he is proposing to brick up the door space under the window now but has stuffed the wall with insulation and bricking up a single wall underneath the new window frame. Has the window got enough support?
1 Answer from a MyBuilder Bricklayer
it will fine to build the external wall with matching face brick work toothed in as the window will sit on this leaf. the internal wall can be built in 100mm studwork with solid cavity insulation and 100mm celotex insulation in studwork, screw fix plasterboard and skim.
