REPLACING STEAMED UP DOUBLE GLAZING
We specialise in replacing steamed up, misty or faulty double glazed units in windows, doors and conservatory. Steamed up double glazing is not only, much less efficient, but it can also be very unsightly. By just replacing the glass and not the frames, we can save you time, money and hassle.
CRACKED OR SMASHED DOUBLE GLAZING
Unfortunately from time to time, accidents can happen. Whether it's due to an impact or down to a sudden change in weather, glass can crack, smash or shatter. Just like replacing steamed up double glazing, we can replace just the glass and get your windows or doors safe and secure once again.
WINDOW AND DOOR HANDLES
Over time, door and window handles get a substantial amount of use and can be prone to wear and tear. They can become slack and in some cases break off all together. We can replace door and window handles in a range of styles and finishes to suit your requirements.
WINDOW AND DOOR LOCKS
Due to excessive use, unfortunately window and door locks don't last forever. If not looked after they can get stiff and begin to seize up. We can carry out a simple repair and replace a wide range of door and window locks to get them working like new again. We also fit window and door restrictors to provide extra safety and security.
WINDOW AND DOOR HINGES
A common problem can be draughty windows. More often than not this is due to faulty window hinges (stays), that do not shut the window tightly. Once again, this is generally caused by wear and tear and excessive use, but is easily resolved. We can replace broken or worn window or door hinges and spare you the expense of paying for new windows or doors, when you don't need to.
CAT FLAPS AND PET DOORS
We offer a range of cat flaps and pet doors to suit your needs and budget. From basic manual locking doors, to micro chip flaps that prevent unwanted visitors. We can fit any of these into glass doors, for a slick finish, or into a uPVC panel to keep costs down. The choice is yours.
SERVICING AND ADJUSTMENTS
Do your windows or doors need some TLC? We see a lot of instances where windows and doors become difficult to operate and if left, can cause further damage and cost more money to repair. In many cases, a small adjustment and a service, can resolve things like a dropped door, thats struggling to lock, or a window thats stiff to close.
GASKETS AND SEALS
Although not always the biggest problem, gaskets and seals can perish. This can, in some cases, result in draughty windows or doors and when combined with other issues, can contribute to leaks and water ingress. We stock a wide variety of gaskets and seals in order to fit most window profiles.
ENERGY SAVING GLASS
Did you know that a staggering 26% of all domestic heat loss escapes through the windows*?
If you're thinking of having new windows to benefit from energy saving glass, stop and think. If your window frames are in good condition, why rip them out and start again when you don't need to?
By just replacing the glass and not the frames, you can still upgrade and improve your double glazing, getting all the benefits from energy saving glass, but at a fraction of the cost.
