The Task:

Draughty window repair, Poole

This customer, in Poole, had a draughty window. Upon inspection I discovered that the gap on the hinge side of the window was due to a failed hinge.

The solution was to fit a new pair of hinges, so that the window would shut properly without any draughts.

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.

Leaking double glazed window – Wimborne

Leaking double glazed window – Wimborne

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.

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.
