Doing a spot of DIY...hanging new curtains to be precise.
The curtain track is currently hanging from fixtures in the ceiling - it's a pretty shit set up, because whatever the fixtures go into isn't solid enough to hold the weight of anything heavy.
So i was thinking of attaching some new fixing and a plastic track (it's a bay window) to the UPVC surround of my double glazed windows because it must be strong than what I've got currently.
Question: can you do this without somehow damaging the double glazing (or the seal, or whatever) itself? Presumably if it's in the surround, you're ok, but do you need to be a certain distance from the edge of the glass?
Is there a special type of fixing I should use for UPVC?
Can I get a fixing that protrudes from the UPVC more so that the curtains don't just squish against the glass?
Assuming that I can actually do this, what sort of power tool should I use to drill holes into the UPVC for the fixings?
