uPVC Window Handles and Locks
Our professional and experienced team are adept at sorting problems with uPVC Windows, Handles and Locks including the inner Locking Mechanisms offering an immediate solution to diagnose and repair all faults. Many faults can start with the handle and Espagnolette Handles are most commonly found on uPVC Windows, identified by the square spindle that projects out from the back of the handle which come in different sizes but if incorrect, will affect the function of the handle. Espagnolette Handles are available in two different designs but work in the same way by moving a sequence of locks into place around the edge of the window. The Inline or Universal handle is straight and the Cranked Handle has left or right handed options. More commonly found on older windows is the Cockspur Handle also available with right and left handed options, however without a spindle, is considered to be less secure than the Espagnolette versions. The Handle is likely to be the first part to alert you of a fault with the Lock Mechanism or the Gearbox located within the Window by not being able to lock the window securely. If you are having to use force to close and lock a window, bent or faulty Hinges also can affect and place added stress on the handle and the lock. If the keys to lock a uPVC Window have been lost it depends on the age of the handle as it is sometimes easier to change the handle and get a new set of keys than to search for keys for the exact lock with such a wide variety of manufacturers on the market today. A replacement part is always going to be the most cost effective way of dealing with a problem with your uPVC Window and our team are happy to visit and carry out an assessment for any uPVC Window faults having a readily available stock of all types of Handles, Lock Mechanism and Gearbox replacement parts to fix the right part quickly and efficiently.
Draughts and Leaks
If the sash and the seal are not compressing tightly and evenly against each other along the length of the lock side of the window and stop the window from closing tightly, this can cause a whistling draught. A uPVC Window should be lining up precisely as it is closed and a window that is correctly aligned should have no gaps. Faulty Hinges are usually the main cause of misalignment through wear and tear or damage from accumulated dirt within the hinges. They are one of the key parts that can cause a draught and leaks from your window and the reason why a window doesn’t open and close freely. Leaks can also be caused by a window that has been fitted incorrectly and in older windows it could be due to wear and tear or a damaged frame. Working quickly and efficiently, our friendly and knowledgeable team will be able to assess and advise you on the best solution. Get in touch anytime for a FREE No Obligation Quote, a same day appointment and rely on our experienced team to prevent leaks from damaging sills and paintwork, avoiding costly repairs at a later date because of further damage, or to replace the hinges and ensure the window closes securely and tightly for a safe draught free uPVC Window.
Double Glazed Window Repairs
Working to Current Health and Safety Regulations, all the Glass we fit conforms to the British Energy and Safety Standard. Double Glazing is two panes of hermetically sealed glass with a gap of around 16mm between the panes where the air trapped inside gives double glazing its insulating properties enabling it to keep the heat in. Seals that are faulty or disintegrating allow the trapped air to escape and this can cause condensation or misting between the two panes of glass which left uncorrected will eventually reduce the thermal properties and increase heating bills. Water vapor can be carried through high pressure from Bathrooms and Kitchens into other rooms around the house that have a lower pressure and levels of condensation can be reduced by good ventilation and increasing the air temperature during cold weather. Both these things will help to keep condensation to a minimum but will not provide a solution to the problem. You don’t have to put up with the annoying and unsightly Condensation problem, allow our experienced team to restore the clear view from your window by replacing and resealing the glass leaving the original frame intact. It is possible if you want to take the opportunity whilst having the glass replaced, to upgrade to an A-Rated energy efficient K Glass and we are happy to discuss all options available. We can be contacted by phone, email or by requesting a call back and a Double Glazing expert will get right back to you.
