Jim Cullinane from Waimak Windows was a guest at out Air BnB recently and at the end of his stay offered to spend several hours working on our heritage doors and changing the lock on another. Everything is now snug, moves smoothly and locks satisfactorily. We are grateful and impressed - would definitely recommend Waimak Windows to Canterbury residents.
