Broken window hinges

My problem is that the window is draughty.

If you have a draught around the opening window when closed, it may be that the window repair needed is a new set of hinges.

We can replace window hinges.

How can you tell if that is the window repair you need?

If, in the corner of the window on the side opposite the handle, you see a gap in one or both of the corners, or it there is a ‘jump’ when you shut the window, then that is most likely failed window hinges.

Give us a call or email and we will give you an idea of cost.

My window won’t open, or it won’t stay shut

In that case, the window repairs needed are either the window handle or the window lock that needs replacing.

If it is the handle needing replacing, how comfortable are you with DIY?

In some cases, a handle can be a DIY job, and most hardware stores have them in stock. There are a few different types of handles, and different lengths of splines, but if you are handy you can at least take the window handle off and see if that is the problem.

If the window handle seems okay, then it is the window lock, and that needs replacing.

But if you are not comfortable with any of that yourself, give us a call and we’ll come out and take care of it.

What about misted glass?

So if the window condensation is in between the two panes, then the seal around the edge of the double glazing on the window has failed.
