we can generally replace gasket seals quickly and cost-effectively to provide a long- lasting, high-performing weather seal which will make a real difference to the ongoing performance of your windows or doors.

With gasket seals around the glazing in particular, it is important to get the right size of gasket fitted: if it’s too thick, it will put too much pressure on the glass; if too thin, it will not hold the glass tightly enough. On externally beaded windows, special sorts of gasket seals work together with the beading to push the glass into place, creating a secure fit.

How to tell if your hinges need replacing

There are several signs that your hinges may need to be changed on your UPVC windows:

Difficulty opening and closing the window: If you notice that it is becoming harder to open or close your window, or if it feels like it is stuck or binding, this could be a sign that the hinges are damaged or worn out.

Visible damage or wear: If you notice that the hinges are visibly damaged, such as if they are bent or have significant wear, they may need to be replaced.

Window is not properly aligned: If your window is not properly aligned in the frame, or if it appears to be tilted or misaligned, this could be a sign that the hinges are not functioning properly.

Noise when opening or closing the window: If you hear a loud noise or creaking when you open or close the window, this could be a sign that the hinges are in need of replacement.

Drafts or leaks: If you notice that your window is no longer sealing properly and you are experiencing drafts or leaks, this could be a sign that the hinges are not providing the necessary support to keep the window properly sealed.

If you are experiencing any of these issues, it is a good idea to have a professional assess your hinges

Will new upvc windows and doors improve the thermal efficiency of my home ?

Installing new UPVC glazing can significantly improve the energy efficiency of your home. UPVC is a highly energy-efficient material, with a low thermal conductivity that helps to keep homes and buildings warm in the winter and cool in the summer.

The amount of improvement you will see will depend on a number of factors, including the current level of insulation in your home, the size and orientation of your windows, and the type of glazing you choose. Double or triple glazed windows can provide even greater insulation and energy efficiency.

To determine the specific energy savings you can expect from new UPVC glazing, it is best to consult with a professional. They can assess your current windows and provide a more accurate estimate of the potential energy savings you can expect.
