Elias was a very flexible and willing worker.  It was hard to find someone to do this job modifying steel screens for my windows.  Elias spent all day, bought new equipment when he needed to and stayed until we had a result I was happy with.  He worked hard and persisted to ensure we were happy.  I can highly recommend Elias.

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.

Hi, After a quote for a few odd jobs that sound like you’re qualified to for. 1. A glass window needs to be replaced, approximately 137cm height x 79cm wide. The window is quite high off the ground, not sure if you can do it from the inside. 2. The hinge has come off the bricks of my side gate outside, can’t close it. 3. A glass gate has dropped and can’t close. 4. One of the timber bifold doors inside has come off the roller and looks like it is missing a part. I’ll attach some photos. Sorry of the descriptions aren’t very clear, let me know if you need more information. I’m selling my house and have open inspections in a weeks time, if you are able to do it before then it would be great Location is Greensborough thanks

Thanks so much for your help at short notice. Done a great job, would recommend thanks

Hey I need either a couch moving expert or a window replacement. The couch is a 4 seater and it won’t fit through the front door. The front window is about 2 x 2 m. The window frame is metal. Is there a way to potentially pop out the window to get the couch through it? Or if someone thinks the couch will actually fit through the door than I’m cool with that too. Basically I need help with getting couch through either the front door or front window. Will add photos tonight. Thanks
