The 5 Installation Essentials
All A&L products require adequate packing, fixing and checking to ensure that they are square and plumb.

Unlike competitor products with unsightly visible drainage holes, most A&L products have hidden drainage holes underneath the sill, for a cleaner aesthetic.
It is essential that these drainage holes are not blocked when the product is installed.
Drainage, or weep holes as they are sometimes referred to, ensure any water that runs down the window, is released to the exterior. If these holes are blocked, any built-up water has nowhere to go and could leak into the home.
