Misted or Damaged Window Repairs 

Sadly, glazed units don’t last for ever. Generally you should expect at least ten years life, but 20 – 30 is possible in the right circumstances. Over time the seal deteriorates and moisture is drawn into the unit, with south facing windows more likely to fail first. 

The remedy is to replace the glazed unit within the window (NEVER let a salesman tell you, you need a new window). The cost will depend on the size of the unit and type of glass. 

Of course glass can get cracked or broken, when we will attend as quickly as possible in relation to the extent of breakage and security of the home.

Door Trim 

Many doors have a trim between the frame and the wall on the inside and/or the outside. These serve to tidy up any irregularity of the plaster or brickwork etc. 

These will be pretty much maintenance free, but sometimes can come loose or be disfigured by years of redecoration etc.. 

We can fit completely new trim, or replace existing trim which can make a significant improvement to the appearance. They can also keep draughts at bay, where movement over the years, has caused joints to crack.

Patio Door Runner Repairs

Your sliding patio door may glide smoothly to the touch. 

Alternatively it maybe stiff and heavy to open and close, and/or may run noisily. The lock might not operate easily. 

Do these problems sound familiar? 

Then the answer probably lies with the wheels or runners hidden away underneath the door. These suffer a lot of wear and tear, especially in salty and/or dusty environments. Bearings can seize up, and/or wear out. The result is the stiff or noisy operation, also possibly causing the lock to be out of alignment making that stiff. 

The cure is at least to check the function, clean and lubricate the wheels and adjust if necessary. It may be necessary to replace them, but the result will be well worth while and will save more expensive wear and/or failure later.

Patio Door Tracks Repairs

The track or rail along the bottom of the door, should kept clean and free of debris. If this becomes worn or distorted, it will affect the ease of use of the doors. Generally, the track can be replaced if necessary.

Tilt and Slide parts and servicing 

 

These are a type of patio door, generally in uPVC, but can also be of aluminium construction; that as the name suggests; not only can they slide across; they can also just tilt inwards, for ventilation. 

Because of the comparative complexity of the mechanical components, it is essential these are maintained properly. Lack of lubrication and/or occasional adjustment can make them tricky to operate, which will lead to longer term damage and potentially expensive (or even dangerous) failure. 

Generally, lubrication of all moving parts with a light spray lubricant a couple of times a year (more if in a coastal area) should be sufficient, but if stiffness or other difficulty in operation is experienced, we recommend you give us a call to check it over. 

The operation of these doors varies from make to make and even models of different makes. 

They can be particularly susceptible to failure if operated roughly or incorrectly, maybe due to unfamiliarity. For this reason, we would not recommend them in multiple occupancy buildings or in rental properties, where users may not be aware of correct operation.
