A common problem with uPVC windows is their functionality. When your windows start to stick or become difficult to open and close, it can be frustrating and inconvenient and in the worst case, it can be a security risk. These operational problems are usually simple to rectify. At Futureglaze, we can supply and install new handles, make adjustments to the working parts of the window and replace the locking system when necessary.

All the replacement parts which we use are sourced from industry respected hardware manufacturers. By using only the highest quality products for our window repair projects, we can prolong the life of your window and ensure that it’s in top working order.

Deterioration of the sealed unit

If you’ve noticed condensation on the interior of your windows, particularly in the morning, this is a sign that your window’s aren’t functioning at the required standard. This is usually due to a faulty seal negatively impacting the window’s insulating performance. Our skilled and experienced glazing team will easily fix this problem by removing the old seal and fully re-sealing your window unit.

In certain circumstances, you may notice condensation in between the two glass panes of the double glazed sealed unit. This is caused when the sealed unit has failed. A failed sealed unit is a more serious defect that a damaged or defective seal. In most cases you will require a replacement unit to fix the problem and get your home back to normal.

Fortunately, at Futureglaze, we install a wide range of high performing double glazed units. If your sealed unit has failed, we can easily replace it with a modern, thermally efficient alternative which will significantly enhance your home’s performance. If you’ve experienced any problems with your double glazing and you’d like to find out if they can be fixed, contact Futureglaze today. Give us a call on 01443 423 423 or send us a message online.
