Hinges (AKA Friction Stays)
Sometimes PVCu Windows let in draughts around the opening vents; the main reason is that the hinges are not aligning in the closing corners due to wear; by replacing the faulty hinges, you can eliminate the draughts. As the new hinges are purchased in pairs, we always fit both the new hinges.
Your hinges could be screwed or pop-riveted to the PVCu either way, we can replace them; there are two main types of hinges, side-hung hinges for vents that open sideways and top-hung hinges for vents that extend from the top. There are varying sizes which is not a problem as we have access to all the different sizes available.
PVCu Frame Cleaning Service
PVCu frames are said to be maintenance-free? What should be said is that they do not need painting. Over the years, white PVCu frames lose their brightness, becoming an off-white finish. To overcome this problem, we offer a PVCu frame cleaning service:
We will clean the inside and outside of the frames using a specialised restoring liquid and a specialised cleaning liquid, both formulated for PVCu frames, making them look all most brand new again; we are sure you will be pleased with the final result.
The area between the opening vents has become very dirty over the years with a build-up of dirt from exhaust fumes, spider webs and general grim. This area can be brushed and then cleaned, and at the same time, the hinges, locks and handles will be checked. Of course, we would not leave before making sure the glass has had a once-over.
It is just a case of unscrewing the old handle and re-screwing the new handle back in its place. A problem can arise where the old handle can’t be matched. Therefore, a different style will need to be fitted.
No salesperson will call unless asked!
PVCu and aluminium doors
These products are not as easy to repair as the windows; at times, we have to ask a locksmith for help.
