Window Hinge Adjustment

Do your windows fail to close properly?  

Mr Misty The Window Doctor explains … 
Opening windows are really important for the ventilation of your home and creating a healthy living environment.

Window hinges are designed to see a lot of action and combined with the window stays should ensure that you have no trouble opening them the required amount and closing them when you want.

When windows become stiff and require that extra push or pull to get them open or shut, it’s time to give them a health check and see if double glazing window hinge repairs are required. 

Undue force causes damage to gaskets, frames and handles or the windows cease to close properly. Broken window catches or broken window stays, hinge issues and poor window alignment can lead to draughts, water ingress and undermine the security of your property.

Mr Misty can repair, adjust and replace most sort of windows hinges on upvc double glazed units, timber-framed double glazed windows and aluminium windows.

Window friction hinge and stay styles can vary across frame types and materials.

Windows can also do a number of different jobs requiring different sorts of window hinges - for example if the window is required to open more fully to act as a fire escape.
