Top Double Glazing Repairs related questions
It’s time to have your double-glazed windows or doors repaired when they already have cracked or broken glass. Other signs include slow-moving or stuck window sashes, missing or damaged exterior drip cap, poor exterior window casing or minor water leaks. These kinds of damages can still be saved by repairs, especially if your double glazing is less than 15 years old.
Not necessarily! Taskers are equipped with their professional tools such as glazing knives, glazing shovels, glass lifters, soft head thor hammers, wrist guards, and razor blades to help them finish the job efficiently. You may want to use your own, especially if you happen to have these on hand. In that case, just feel free to inform your Tasker beforehand!
The time it takes to repair your double glazing depends on the extent of the damages. It can take half an hour for minimal damages and an hour or two for more extensive ones for each window or door. It also depends on the number of windows and doors that need to be fixed.
It’s not recommended for you to repair your double glazing yourself. Since you would be handling glass, chances are you could injure yourself. Instead, hiring a professional glazier to fix your double glazing can ensure your safety. They can also get the job done right the first time, saving you from mistakes, time, effort, and money in the long run.
What do double glazing repair services include?
Double glazed window repairs start with inspecting and assessing the damage and recommending the proper repair plan appropriate for your needs. Having windows installed also means committing to having it checked and repaired whenever needed. Here are some things to expect when booking double glazed window repair near you:
Double glazing hinges
Broken double glazing window hinges can make it difficult for the window or door to close properly, creating access points for draughts to seep through. Fortunately, adjusting double-glazed door hinges are an easy fix for experts. If your hinge has already been misaligned, you can have your door repaired. The same is also true for windows! Regardless of the type of hinges you have, your Tasker can ensure that your doors or windows will open and close smoothly for years to come.
Double glazing locks
Locks can be prone to wear and tear over the years, and having defective ones can be a threat to your property’s security. So it is good that double glazed window locks can be easily repaired, whether it’s unlocking your jammed window or fixing its locking capacity. The same can also be done with your double-glazed door locks. You can also have new locking mechanisms installed for added security!
Double glazing frames
Whether your repairs are for uPVC, wood, aluminum or metal frames, your Tasker can help you fix them! They can mend minor faults such as holes, cracks, scuffs, scratches, and staining to your frames, saving you from further damages and extensive repairs. From rebuilding the surface and matching its exact colour and finish to resealing your double glazed windows, expect them to look as if they were never damaged.
If you want, your Tasker can repaint with a different colour and resurface it with a different finish to give your window or door an entirely new look! And to top it off, why not hire someone to hang a mirror on your door to make it more chic?
Double glazing handles
Since window and door handles are used every day, it’s inevitable for them to wear down over the years. They can either be too wobbly with no resistance or too stiff and already stuck, leaving you unable to operate your doors and windows. Not to worry, because your Tasker can fix this by either tightening or loosening some screws or replacing your handles with appropriate ones if needed.
Double glazing seals
When your seal is broken, it leads to blown double glazing where moisture gets into the insulation section of your window, leaving them misty and cloudy. Condensation reduces the quality of your double-glazing and makes it unsightly. Your Tasker can fix this by drilling a hole or two in one of the glass planes, then injecting a special drying agent to expel the moisture and an anti-fogging agent to prevent future moisture build-up. You can also help prevent condensation by having your windows cleaned regularly and get rid of mould caused by dampness.
