Hi All .. my 1st post.

1. The board wldnt allow me to upload related photo (from android phone, standard photo), message said file too large .. is there another way to upload photos.

2. Got a damaged (10p size burn hole) white plasticky window seal (fitted when uPvc windows installed 3-4yrs ago). Seal has a vSmooth plasticky surface material. Could i fill it and with what to make it good.
Many thanks.

There is a link to Picture Posting Guide at the top of every forum section.

Put a pic up of the damage mate it'll help a lot. You could probably fill it with silicone sealant and smooth if off. It'll look a lot better but still be visible

That's in a very obvious place where you're going to really notice any repair. I know you can get upvc window repair kits to fill holes etc but I haven't ever used one so can't comment, plus they cost more than a new cover cill would. I would replace the cill it's pretty easy to do so. No harm in trying to fill the hole with ct1 first and if that looks rubbish replace it?
