S4 Window Frames

PostPost by: Billelan » Fri Aug 11, 2023 9:59 am

Hi. Can anyone recommend a company to carry out minor repairs and re-chrome my S4 window frames. I’m based in the UK. Prefer to go on recommendation than using google. Thanks in advance.

How bad is the chrome? Mine looked pretty ropey, then I polished with Brasso and fine wire wool. Came up almost like new. There is still pitting of course, but it's hard to see and adds patina.

Thanks Jon.
To be honest the frames probably aren’t that bad. I might have a look and see if they’ll clean up before handing the over to someone for a re chrome.
