Top Window Sash Repair related questions

With Airtasker, you won't have to settle for whoever is available to repair your window sash. Through our platform, you can choose the best-rated tradie who can immediately come to your house and get the job done for you. You can also set your ideal fair rate and browse through multiple offers. Without the expense of overhead workshops, you'll still get quality repair service without having to pay extra.
Not necessarily, but you can always lend your Tasker your hammers, power drills, levels, and screwdrivers, especially if you already have them on hand. Most of our Taskers are equipped with the necessary tools needed anyway, so you won't have to worry about providing anything. Just let them know beforehand if you need them to bring over their toolkit, or if there are any specific treatments and adhesives that they should pick-up along the way.
It depends on the damage to your window sash and the repairs needed. Usually, simple corrosion and scratch treatments can be completed between a few hours or longer, but very often, within the day. In case your Tasker needs to repolish or repaint, then it may take more than a day to complete the task because of the curing time required. You can always ask your Tasker for a more accurate estimated time of the repair.
Window sash repair is less expensive than getting a replacement. Scratches, leaks, and corrosion are easily solved by quick repairs and do not necessarily require immediate replacements. However, it may be best to book a window sash replacement if the damage is already affecting your window's structural integrity; or, if the repair is costing you as much as the replacement.
The service won't simply end after the repair of your window sash. Upon request, our Taskers can also help with the after-work clean up, so you won't have to worry about anything else. They can sweep and collect all the excess debris, and get rid of them for you as well. You can also book our cleaning services if you want a more extensive polishing of your window glasses and the surrounding areas, as well as your blinds and curtains.
You can book Airtasker for virtually any house maintenance service, even for conservatory repairs. Aside from sash windows, we can also repair and fit door handles, replace and clean blinds and curtain walls, or even install stair balustrades. If you want to increase your house or conservatory efficiency, we have glaziers who can upgrade your window or door glasses to double glazing ones. We also have plumbing tradies to help you install interior heaters.

What do window sash repair services include?

Our tradesmen can perform minor to extensive repairs for common window sash issues. Instead of a costly replacement, they can help restore and bring back your damaged sash windows to their original look and allow them to function properly for much longer. The process usually includes the pre-inspection, sash repair, and installation check. 

Booking with us for the first time? Here are some of the window sash repairs that we can help you with:

Wooden window frame repair

While wooden windows are often preferred because of their durability, they are also prone to rot due to moisture and dampness, which can be a major drawback. If you're already encountering small holes and cut damages on your wood sill or sash, book our window sash repair service as soon as possible. Depending on the severity of the damage, our Taskers may remove the rotted parts, use wood fillers or heavy-duty adhesives, and even repaint the frames. They can also apply natural preservatives to prolong the life of your wooden sash.

UPVC window frame repair

UPVC windows won't quickly rot and deteriorate despite being more affordable and lighter in terms of weight. However, you're still likely to deal with cracks, stubborn scuffs, and staining over time. Extreme damages are also possible from abuse and too much weather exposure. Our repair experts can perform almost any UPVC or plastic window frame repairs and restore the appearance of your sash as if it was brand new. If desired, they can also give it a whole new look without having to replace the entire thing.

Aluminium window frame corrosion repair

Untreated aluminium windows can easily suffer from corrosion. While it does sound doable, it's better to leave the corrosion repairs at the hands of a professional. Our Taskers can perform thorough aluminium window frame corrosion repair and identify the root of the problem. Using the right tools and equipment, they remove the dirt and corrosion without compromising the natural finish and repolish the corroded area. They can also apply organic or chemical treatments to prevent the same issue from relapsing.

Leaking window frame repair

Having a damaged, leaking window can be very frustrating and unbearable during heavy storms. Get in touch with our window sash repair experts as soon as you've seen water leakage in your frame before it leads to more costly repairs. They can help figure out where the seepage is coming from and apply treatments where possible. It depends on the complexity of the damage, but usually, they reseal, recaulk, or repaint your window sash. If the damage has already been affecting the structure of a window, then a window sill replacement may be a better choice.
