What does a window repair service include?

Your window repair person can help with a range of different window types and repair services, including glass window repairs, aluminium window frame repairs, and even car window repairs. They’ll advise you on the best solution (whether repair or replacement) and use their tools to get the job done. Here’s what you can expect from some of the most common window repair services:

Glass window repairs

Your handyman will start by assessing the damage. If the extent of the damage is beyond repair, they’ll recommend a window replacement. But if your window glass only has a small crack, hole, or scratch, they’ll be able to repair it - at least temporarily - to seal your room and prevent the damage from getting worse.  They’ll wear heavy duty gloves before handling any broken glass. Next, they’ll use clear nail-polish to patch up any small holes and scratches, building it up in layers, to discretely repair the glass. If there’s a crack but the window still feels sturdy, your repairer may apply a piece of clear tape over the surface to stop the crack from spreading further. For more advanced repairs, you’ll need to hire a glazier or organise a glass replacement.

Window frame repairs

The most common window frame repairs involve repairing rotten wood frames (since aluminium windows are less prone to damage). Your repairer will start by chipping away most of the rotten wood before covering it with a few layers of liquid epoxy to soak in. Once dry, they’ll mix epoxy filler and use this to fill the gap in your wooden window frame, shaping it to blend in with the rest of the frame. Once this filler is dry, they’ll sand the area smooth. At this point, the repairs are ready for priming and painting.

Window replacement

When your glass windows are beyond repair, they’ll need replacing. Your handyman will start by using the broken window pain. They’ll put on heavy duty gloves and safety glasses before scraping away at the putty or loosening the seal around the broken window pane so they can loosen and remove the old glass (including any shards). They’ll dispose of the old glass and then smooth out the edges of the frame so remove any remaining sealants. Your window replacement technician will measure the window to determine the size of the new glass, leaving a small 3.2mm gap around the edges to allow for expansion. Most of the time, they’ll get the glass cut to size at a local hardware store or glass company. Depending on the type of window frame and how the glass is sealed in, your handyman will then apply putty to the edges of the window, rolling it in their hands to make a long rope, and then sticking it onto the frame. They’ll gently push the new glass into the frame, allowing it to stick to the putty. Your window replacement professional will then apply more putty around the edges on both sides of the glass before gently removing any excess putty and smoothing it over.

Car window repairs

If your car window has a minor hole or crack, your window repairperson may be able to fix it without needing a total replacement. They’ll clean the area to remove debris and use a glass repair kit to seal the broken area with epoxy. The epoxy is applied using a syringe which forces resin into any cracks for a stronger seal.

Awning repair - external window awning crank is jammed


Higgins ACT, Australia

16th Jan 2024

I have an external awning that comes down outside in front of our nursery window for shade. It has an internal crank which seems to be jammed, possibly the cabling is folding as it feeds in and its getting stuck. Seems like a simple mechanical issue that could be fixed if someone knows how to take it apart and put it back together again without making it worse (which is what I think would happen if I tried). - Due date: Before Thursday, 15 February 2024

Set up crank window for portable air conditioner


Moncrieff ACT, Australia

17th Sep 2023

I have a portable air conditioner that I am using with a tube that goes out a crank window, but it lets a lot of heat and pollen in from outside. I would like someone to create a solution so my air conditioner tube can go out the window without letting outside air get in. It needs to be fully sealed. I am currently using garbage bags taped to the window, but ideally would like stronger plastic/masking tape as I don't think this solution will last very long. Another possible option would be to cut out some corflute and tape to the edges of the window. Open to creative suggestions and ideas! Please note I am in a rental so it can't be permanent - it needs to be temporary and removable. Happy to negotiate pricing depending on what is required. Due date is flexible but ideally sometime in the next couple of weeks.
