Have you ever experienced any problems with your uPVC windows? While uPVC window frames are generally robust and durable, they aren’t indestructible! There are many problems that can arise with your windows, such as issues with the hinges, locking mechanisms or the double glazing.
Before you consider replacing your windows, it might be worth instead looking into uPVC window repairs. At Futureglaze, we’ve repaired many uPVC windows over the years, and you’ll be pleased to know that in many cases, problems with uPVC windows can be fixed.
How do I know if my uPVC windows need repair?
Look for signs such as drafts, difficulty opening or closing the window, condensation between the panes, or visible damage to the frame or glass. If you notice any of these issues, it’s best to consult a professional uPVC window repair service to assess and fix the problem.
Replacement uPVC window handles, hinges and locking systems
When your uPVC windows start to stick or become difficult to open and close, it can be frustrating and inconvenient. In the best case, faulty hinges and locks can make it difficult to open your windows for ventilation and fresh air. In the worst case, it can be a security risk and leave your home vulnerable to intruders.
These operational problems are usually simple to rectify. Window locks and hinges should be cleaned in the first instance to make sure there is no debris preventing these mechanisms from working. However, if the problems persist, replacements may be needed.
All the replacement parts 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 for years to come.
Double glazing window repairs: improving insulation and reducing condensation
If you’ve noticed condensation on the interior of your windows, particularly in the morning, this is a sign that your windows 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 than a damaged or defective seal and, in most cases, you will require a replacement unit to fix the problem.
