Upvc windows are usually locked by the means of a locking mechanism called an espagnolette. These can fail and leave you with a window that can not be opened or locked. If the handle turns freely but the window remains still locked, there is every chance the espagnolette has failed.
This does not mean a new window is required. We can replace these for a fraction of the cost of a complete new window.
The window is held in place by friction hinges. No one ever bothers to service the hinges and thus they can buckle or seize after time. If they do call us for a repair. We will need to take the window out, not the frame and replace both of the friction hinges. But this will save you £££s over a complete new window and a lot less hassle.
Another sign that the hinges have failed is when there is a gap around the window, letting cold air in and heat out!
Tilt and turn windows are popular windows in the South Yorks region. They can be expensive to replace, so let us repair your existing window instead – its cheaper and easier for you!
On tilt and turn windows if the handle only turns a part of the way,the drive gear which moves the locking part round the edge of the frame has failed.
Window handles often break, sometimes you lose the keys, maybe you just want to update the handles. We will offer you a choice from our selection of handles and fit them for you too.
