Misted Double Glazing Repairs
If a double glazed sealed unit has gone misty it is likely that a fault, like a small puncture, has developed in the perimeter, and moisture is getting inside and between the two panes of glass.
As temperatures change moisture will turn into liquid, which cannot escape. When sealed units are manufactured they are not designed to be taken apart again, hence when it has failed it will need replacing. We are fully trained to do this quickly and to a high standard.
Sealed Unit Failure
The most common cause of sealed unit failure is due to the unit not being sealed correctly during manufacture. If a unit is not fully sealed all the way round, the unit is likely to fail within a relatively short time scale, and this will be normally within a year or so. We can replace sealed units of any age and make.
Tilt & Turn Windows
Increasing in popularity, tilt-and-turn windows can be opened inwards from the top allowing you to ventilate your home effectively or from the side for easy cleaning from within your home.The Tilt-and-Turn window is extremely secure and ideal for accessible windows or where ventilation is needed while maintaining security. It can also be used as an effective fire escape. We are able to repair and replace glass, frames and locks on these windows maing them fully operational and secure.
