Prevention is better than cure...
While UPVC and aluminium door and window frames generally only need cleaning to keep them in tip-top condition for a very long time, the moving parts of the installation - hinges, internal mechanisms and handles - need to be looked after to achieve a much greater working life.
A full service to UPVC and Aluminium installations should be carried at around the fifth year after installation. Charges are based on a small call out fee plus the number of opening windows and doors on the property, typically around £120 for a semi-detached home. Compare that to a full service on your car which is done annually this works out at roughly £25 per year!!!
A Handles & Hinges service involves a full inspection of each window and door on your property and includes all minor adjustments to parts immediately and lubrication with a high quality Teflon based spray. Many problems can also develop as a result of incorrect fitting, especially on doors which may not have been packed correctly during installation. Our engineer will identify and correct any simple faults in this area.
A full report will indicate work completed and any further action needed. This will identify where parts have limited life expectancy. We provide a no-obligation quotation for any remedial work recommended.
