Mr Misty The Window Doctor explains…
Quality, high-performing gasket is a vital part of any weatherproof window or door. It provides an all-important seal between the opening sash and the outer frame while under compression, preventing draughts and water ingress inconvenience and damage.
Special types of gasket seals are also used in double glazed units, fitted between the glazing and the frame to hold the glass securely in place.
In all double glazing, gasket repairs should be undertaken as soon as the fault is spotted to safeguard the integrity of your window or door.
Gasket seals on your double glazed windows or doors can shrink or perish over time. This can create gaps and cold spots.
At Mr Misty, 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.
Mr Misty stocks gasket seals for most pvcu window and door profiles and can source specialist gasket to repair and refurbish your leaky and draughty windows and doors if required.
Most extruded gasket seal comes in several colour options like white, black and brown.
