When to repair your windows

Broken or cracked glass

The damaged glass should be repaired and fixed as soon as possible; not only does it affect your home's efficiency, but it can also be dangerous for you and your family. So if the glass panels on your windows show signs of cracks, you need to get them repaired as soon as possible.

Poor Exterior Window Casing 

Whether it's loose, cracked, rotting or missing, if your exterior casing experiences this, it can cause your window to get damaged. You need to make sure to remove the casing with a new one to prevent your windows from getting damaged further. 

Stuck Sashes 

This often occurs in older windows, where the upper or lower sashes are unable to move. This is often caused if the sash has come off track which can be easily fixed by our professional glaziers throughout London, including Fulham, Tooting and Wimbledon.

When to replace your windows

Glass is fogging up

When condensation occurs, it causes windows to fog up. High levels of humidity can cause the windows to mould or rot, affecting the insulation of your home. It can be repaired by drilling a small hole to release the moisture, but we highly recommend fully replacing your windows.

Choosing between replacing your windows and repairing heavily depends on the issue you are experiencing with your existing windows. If you are still unsure whether you get your windows repaired or replaced, our window fitters are on hand to guide you through it. Call our team on 0330 133 1655 and we will be happy to help.
