Are you struggling to close your double glazed windows?

Before you blame it on a sticky frame or faulty locks, take a closer look at your window hinges.

Hinges are often overlooked but crucial to smooth window operation, damaged hinges can cause a whole range of issues with your windows.

Your windows may be in need of repair if you have any of these three issues:

Difficulty opening or closing your window or door

  • If your windows are becoming a struggle to open or close, the hinges might be the root cause.
  • Stiff or rusted hinges can impede the smooth movement of the window sash, making operation a chore.

Visible wear and tear

  • Take a close look at your hinges.
  • Do you notice any rust spots, corrosion, cracks, or misalignment?
  • These are all signs of worn-out or damaged hinges that need attention.

Squeaking or grinding noises

  • Are your windows making unpleasant sounds when you try to open or close them?
  • Squeaking, grinding, or scraping noises often indicate hinge problems, such as friction caused by wear or misalignment.

If you’ve noticed any of these three signs in your windows or doors, it’s essential to address the issue promptly to avoid any further damage.

Ignoring hinge problems can also lead to further issues down the line, such as compromised security in your home or reduced energy efficiency.
