Double glazing repairs and maintenance


We’re all aware of the benefits that double glazed windows and doors provide – they look good, reduce unwanted noise from outside, and are much more energy efficient than the timber frames they often replace. In fact, they come with so many benefits that we can take them for granted, and not maintain them as we should! Ignore that missing key for the window, or the door that doesn’t quite lock right, and yes this handle does work, there’s a knack to it, you just need to lift a bit and…

How do I Identify the problem with my UPVC doors?

We always advise our clients that the most expensive part of a double glazed door is the mechanism, so once this fails you will need to replace it immediately. The most common reason for a failing mechanism is the build-up of dirt. Due to ware and tare, the dust, wind and rain can collect as debris and dirt and embed into it which can result in parts within the door failing to operate efficiently. When this occurs, therefor double glazed repairs can be anywhere between £90 to £800. Your windows go through the same effects so please have them serviced and cleaned on a regular basis.

What issues could I face with my double glazed windows?

Your first point of call is to check whether your beading is on the outside or the inside. If the beading is on the outside please contact R&M Locksmiths as soon as possible as this provides easy access to anyone who wants to force entry into your home.
