Georgian bar sealed unit with condensation – Hamworthy

Georgian bar sealed unit with condensation – Hamworthy

The Problem:

Gold, Georgian bar sealed unit with condensation inside

Last week I visited a customer in Hamworthy, whose gold Georgian bar sealed unit had condensation in the cavity.

It’s quite common, especially in the autumn when the temperature drops, for condensation to form on windows and patio doors. This might mean that the unit is no longer sealed.

This doesn’t mean that the whole UPVC window or door needs replacing. If your windows or doors are otherwise in good condition, we can simply replace the unit. This not only improves the appearance of your double glazing, but also the energy efficiency.

Check out the ‘before’ and ‘after’ photos below.

The Problem:

Leaking double glazed window Wimborne, Dorset

Today I was called to Wimborne to look at a problem with a double glazed window, which was leaking. After a torrential downpour rainwater had started flooding in through the window.

The problem became obvious: the window gasket had deteriorated over time and needed replacing. A gasket provides a mechanical seal filling the space between two objects, mostly to prevent leakage between the two objects.

The photo below shows the old gasket and the replacement one.

Seized bathroom window lock – Creekmoor

Seized bathroom window lock – Creekmoor

The Problem:

Seized bathroom window lock

Yesterday I had a call from a lady in Creekmoor, in Poole, who couldn’t open her bathroom window.

Upon attending the property I found that the bathroom’s window lock was seized due to corrosion and the gearbox breaking. The locking rods and guides were also badly corroded.

Locking rods and guides badly corroded – this was the reason the bathroom window wouldn’t open.

The Solution:

New replacement gearbox, locking rods and guided. The bathroom window opens once again!

The Problem:

Seized window locks and misted door glass

Recently, I was called to a job in Parkstone, Poole, where the property had two seized window locks, so the windows couldn’t be opened. The owners of the house also had a problem with misted door glass in their double glazed back door.

I discovered that two of the upstairs window locks had completely seized, meaning that to rectify the problem I first had to open the window/gain entry. I was then able to replace the broken locks with new window mechanisms.

The double glazed back door had misted door glass, so I fitted a new door double glazed unit thus rectifying the problem.

The Solution:

Window lock mended. The bedroom window can now be opened.

The Problem:

Broken window handle

Verwood: This property required a new window handle, since the old one was seized. That mean that the double glazed window just wouldn’t open.

The Solution

The new handle has been fitted, so the window will now open, and I have one very happy customer!
