Need help boarding up a window
Done in quick time, professional equipment and very nice person
Remove window restrictor
A really good job. We’re shielding from Covid & Goutham was really careful. It was also a tricky job, drilling into solid iron windows, that needed Goutham to cross town to get a titanium drill bit (as well as all the window locks we had fitted). A great job - thanks Goutham.

Top Window Repair related questions
Start by making sure there is no loose glass that could injure family members or pets. If you have a crack in your window and are concerned about wind/rain getting inside, you could place thick tape over the surface to provide a temporary seal.
Common window breakages include cracks, chips, holes, and scratches.
If the tenant caused the window to break through malicious activity or negligence, they’ll need to organise window repairs and pay for them. But if damage has happened due to the property ageing or something else out of the tenant’s control, it’s up to the landlord to pay for the repair.
You don’t need to purchase anything for your window repair unless instructed to by your handyman. They may bring their own equipment and supplies, and will advise you during the service if any parts are needed.
This depends on the size and location of the window. For basic window replacements at ground floor level, this could take as little as 1 hour.
Window repairs usually cost between £60 - £163 when you book your service through Airtasker. But the total cost for your service will depend on the type of window, type of repair, the location of the window, and how long it’ll take to get the job done.

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.
When your glass windows are beyond repair, they’ll need replacing. Your handyman will start by using the broken window pane. 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 repair person 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.

Insulate drafty windows, fix doors / windows which will not close well
Peckham, Greater London, SE15
13th Sep 2023
Looking for a reliable handyperson to assist with the following: 1. insulating drafty windows, especially in the lounge but also 3 bedrooms through any/all of the following methods: - adding / replacing window seals - applying window film (you would need to clean the windows prior to application) - filling any holes / gaps around the window frames with expanding foam or other appropriate solution 2. fixing doors / windows which won't close / open properly - my tenants reported the following: Windows and doors: 1. Big windows in living room are drafty/ one does not close properly 2. Back doors to garden don't shut properly. The lock works but it seems that the doors don't fit the frames anymore so can't be fully closed (this is our priority as it's a security issue as well) 3. Bedroom window at the back of the house is drafty (it would be great to still be able to open this instead of sealing shut as it gets very hot in this room in summer.) 4. Door knob on bedroom at the back of the house often comes off the latch, meaning the room is locked and needs to be opened with a card. NOTE: 1) I need a quote that covers assumed materials AND labour, but please tell me what your quote covers / does not cover so that, if the work is different (e.g. if a door mechanism needs replacing which you had not accounted for), we can adjust the price fairly to reflect that 2) you will need to coordinate with my tenants regarding access and exactly which doors / windows require attention because I will be travelling in a different time zone. - Due date: Flexible - Due date: Before Thursday, 21 September 2023
George did a fab job of fixing some drafty windows and some broken door latches and window closures. Very efficient and good about coordinating with my tenants. I wouldn't hesitate to book him again. Very happy!
Fixing rain leaks in wooden window
Dalston, Greater London, E8
11th Jul 2023
My wooden window (new build, 2nd floor, accessible with a ladder if outside inspection is needed) wasn’t sealed properly and it has started leaking when it rains heavily. Some of my neighbours have had similar issues, which the developer tried to sort by applying some glue from the outside, but it doesn’t seem to be enough. There is also water infiltration through the wall. I attach some photos. I would be keen for an easy fix (glue, isolation material etc) or advice on what can be done. Thank you! - Due date: Flexible - Due date: Flexible
