Fogged / Misted Windows
Misting is a frequent problem on double-glazed units. This can be due to age of the unit or sometimes by incorrect fitting. Repair involves the replacement of the failed glass pane or unit. All our new replacement glass come with a ten year guarantee, for parts and labour in the unlikely event of a unit failing.
Some companies offer to "Repair" or "Get the fog out" of misted units. This is not a good idea. A sealed unit has to have a completely dry environment between the panes of glass. This is achieved by having desiccant (moisture absorbing beads) inside the spacer tube which effectively dry out the area when the unit is sealed. Drilling holes in a blown unit will not repair it to the original specification.
We can replace broken glass quickly and efficiently. We're able to match almost all existing tints, shading, lead work and Georgian bars so you can be sure that the finished job looks every bit as good as the original. If you have coloured leaded units, it may be necessary to temporarily board the individual unit to get an exact match, but again, don't think you will need a whole new window.
Once broken, the only remedy is to replace the failed part. Virtually all hinges are still available so don't be fooled in to spending more than you really need to.
Door and Window Locks
Age can wear down the mechanism or in some instances an attempted break-in can lead to faults. When a lock fails, it's an ideal opportunity to replace the whole mechanism for a more recent - and more secure model. Customers often choose lock upgrades as a result of police or insurance company recommendation.
Door and Window Handles
Once broken the only remedy is to replace the failed part.
Whether it is for a door or window, most handles are still available, but in the event a part is not, an alternative can be found 99% of the time.
Some older uPVC panels can discolour over time. However, this problem can be fixed by fitting a new panel insert into the door frame, giving the discoloured door a great new look and saving you from having to buy a whole new door. The newer panels have an additive in the plastic to prevent the problem.
