    Mechanism And Handle Issues

    Another common fault is when a uPVC window become hard or Stiff to open and shut.

    This is mainly down to the uPVC window be out of alignment there the mechanism is catching rather than being smooth.

    This over time will put added pressure on the mechanism and handle causing them to break.

    Glass Installation

    Believe it or not most uPVC window glass has been incorrectly installed. We`re even seeing new build estates that have had glass incorrectly installed.

    The problem with this is that it causes the window to sag and the mechanism to be out of alignment.

    This is turn could cause a house to become Draughty due to the uPVC window having gaps and therefore losing all the heat from your house.

    We can solve this problem by removing the old glass and re installing it in the correct manor.

    This Would not require any new parts and the existing glass would remain, Unless the glass has blown or misted up then we recommend changing the glass for a new unit.
