New windows old window boards

    Hi Guys,

    I am getting new windows fitted this year, all the window boards are solid teak and i would like to keep them and refit after new windows are fitted, rather than paying 50 euro a board for pvc.

    I have never seen anyone replacing windows before so im not sure whether they need to damage the window boards to remove them etc, they have been unstalled since 1990 so i expect they are masonry nailed in.

    Got windows replaced 3 yrs ago, fitters replaced window boards as well (included in price) had a choice of MDF, white deal,pvc, and teak.Went with mostly teak but PVC in 2 en suites.Company are also suppliers of traditional joinery products so the window boards were not a big deal to them.
