UPVC window hinge repair

Most double glazed doors and windows fitted today are UPVC (PVCu) or composite construction. They should give years of faultless service. If they do go wrong we can fix them. A repair or adjustment may save you having to buy a new set of doors.

UPVC double glazing replacement

What goes wrong with doors and windows?

We can replace blown/misted up glass, open and adjust jammed or broken doors and windows. Many common problems with UPVC doors and windows are caused by misalignment. Doors can drop over time. Buildings can settle. Sometimes doors were carelessly fitted.

If your doors are hitting the frame, have dropped, or warped that can be fixed. If doors / windows are not correctly aligned the mechanisms can break or jam. Even doors with butt hinges without adjustment can be adjusted in other ways. Perhaps your windows become murky, misted up or even have condensation between the glass. Misted glass is not only unsightly but it your double glazing will not be working effectively.

Draughty UPVC windows are commonly caused by worn or broken hinges (also known as friction stays). We can replace these hinges.

Even modern composite doors can cause problems. These doors warp much less than UPVC systems but often have limited hinge adjustment. Composite door keeps (on the frame) are often fitted slightly out of true. Any undue difficulty lifting the handle/locking can result in a broken gearbox. There are entire estates (especially ones in Coleford and Lydney) that have had composite doors badly installed from new.

Before you give up on your wonky doors or jammed windows, give us a call.
