A clear sign that your double glazed windows need replacing is if they have become misted. Misted units have poor thermal efficiency and are less effective at keeping out the cold. This can often occur as your double glazed units age. The team at Aacme provide quality and affordable replacements for all misted and broken units. As well as not looking great, condensation can actually reduce the amount of light which is able to stream through the window which is their main purpose. If left this can often lead to you ending up with mould growing on the inside of the frame too. The worst-case scenario is when the window actually starts to leak and you end up with pools of water on the inside. In all of these instances, it’s probably the most cost-effective option to simply replace the window as repairs can work out as expensive if the seals on other panes fail and the whole cycle starts again.
Quality installed windows can last for a long time, commonly between 15 and 20 years. However, there are a number of reasons why you might want to get them replaced before. The most obvious reason is if there is a breakage. Maybe a ball has been kicked into your window or severe weather has caused the glass to break. This is often an emergency so luckily our dedicated glazing team work around the clock and can carry out weekend repairs to ensure your home is kept secure and warm.
Stiff and creaky locks on your double glazed units occur over time if they are poorly maintained. They are prone to general wear and tear throughout their lifetime due to their extensive use. Regular cleaning & oiling will prolong their lifespan but they can begin to grind against the frame over time – causing permanent damage to the locking mechanism. Our glaziers are experienced at removing & servicing or completely replacing all locks for double glazed windows & doors. If you begin to notice faults with your locks, for example, maybe you need to lift the door handles that little bit more in order to lock it. If you get to this stage, call for a service, it’s a lot more inexpensive than replacing the lock.
Leaks and Drafts
From time to time windows, doors and conservatories may suffer leaks or draughts. These can be very inconvenient and are caused by a number of issues including slipped roof panels, faulty hinges, broken door or window seals. Whatever the problem the fitters at Aacme Glass will be able to identify and correct a problem in no time. Call us today if you have a window leak before further damage is caused to your home!
Hinges and Handles
In addition to faulty locks, issues with the hinges or handles are the most common repairs our glass experts fix. Broken or damaged hinges often occur over time so we recommend applying oil to the moving parts regularly to prolong their life. If left unrepaired, the hinges can stiffen and scrape against the frame or completely lock up – preventing you from opening or closing your window/door. Drafts can often occur when the window doesn’t shut properly and don’t forget that could give you a potential security issue too. Our glaziers are experienced at removing & servicing or completely replacing all hinges, handles and locks for double glazed windows and doors.
