What do window frame repairs include?

Window frame repairs could include minor surface repairs, repainting, or even a replacement. It all depends on how damaged the surface is and what look you want to achieve. Your repairer will assess the frame and advise you on the best course of action. Here are some of the most common window frame repair services:


Wooden window frame repair

Window frame rot repair is the most common service requested by homeowners with wooden windows. The exact approach to this repair service will depend on the extent of the rot, so your handyman will start by cutting into the frame in a few places to see how deep the rot goes and how much it has spread (in some cases, it can spread into the surrounding wall structure). Your repairer may need to replace the entire frame and sill, or perhaps just remove a section that’s rotted and replace it with a fresh piece of timber. If needed, they’ll rebuild or replace your window, ensuring it fits into the cavity. Then any other wooden parts that came into contact with the rot will be treated with a preservative or sealer to help them resist further rot. Once your window frame is repaired, they’ll finish off by sanding, priming, and painting to match your other windows.


Aluminium window frame repair

While aluminium windows are less prone to damage than wood, things still go wrong. In humid environments, frame joint seals can deteriorate quickly, which can impact your room’s insulation from hot/cold air. Another common issue is latches and hooks, which may stop working, especially if they aren’t properly maintained. Your handyman will check all parts to ensure they’re clean and free from built-up dirt and grime. If any parts are damaged and impacting function, they’ll replace them with new ones.


Window frame replacement

If your window frame needs replacing, your technician will start by removing any moving parts (like the part that opens and closes) and remove the interior trim. Next, they’ll unscrew the window’s mounting hardware before slipping the window frame out. Alternatively, if the frame is nailed in place, they’ll use a metal cutting blade on a saw to cut the nails between the window frame and the property framework so they can slide out the window. Now it’s time to install the replacement window. Your window installer will use a tape measure to mark where it needs to go, ensuring a perfect fit. They’ll slide the new window frames into place, screwing or nailing them in place and caulking the seam to ensure a firm fit with no gaps.


Window frame painting

If you have older aluminium frames, chances are their colour could do with a freshen up to bring them into this century. Your window frame technician will remove any fixtures (like curtains and blinds) that might get in the way. They’ll remove any sliding/moving parts of your window then clean all the surfaces. They’ll put down a drop sheet and lay your window on top. They’ll use painters’ tape to cover the window sill and glass surrounding the aluminium frame, covering the main glass surface with paper towel. Next, they’ll prime the surface, applying 2-3 coats of spray primer. Once dry, they’ll apply the topcoat of paint, spraying about 15cm away from the surface, moving in long strokes for an even coat. They may apply up to 3 coats of paint, depending on the coverage needed, leaving 20 minutes between coats. Once dry, they’ll remove the tape and towels before replacing the window and fixtures.

External window frames need old paint stripped off, holes filled and sanded back. There are 6 windows frames. The biggest window frame is shown in the picture - 3 panels. The closeup photo is what the condition of the paint is like. The other window frames are 2 panels.

Re securing glass in window frame

$100

Rowsley VIC, Australia

2nd Oct 2021

Hi. We have a window where the wood that holds the glass in place has fallen away and the glass is at risk of falling out of the frame. The glass is in tact so we don't need a new sheet of glass, and only need the glass that's there re-secured into the frame. The window is at 2nd storey level but can be accessed outside with a normal ladder, or from inside. Can I please get a quote for the repair? Thank you - Due date: Before Friday, 8th Oct 2021

I am looking for someone to help open my windows. When the frames were painted, the paint covered all gaps, which means the windows were sealed shut. I need someone to cut through the paint (e.g. with blade or chisel) on all edges (inside and out) so the windows will open again. I have a total of 14 windows that need opening. - Due date: Flexible
