Windows and their hardware are not only locks and handles. There are also sashes, latches, hinges, balancers and they are just a few components which make up the window construction. The right parts are difficult to find, but they are really important. Unfortunately, wearing out is a natural and inevetable process, which show itself with time and use. This process has a heavy effect on all the inner parts of the window.

Signs of Damaged Hardware

If you have difficulty with opening and closing windows or they don’t even stay open, there is a problem with the parts, operating the window. To figure out all the parts which aren’t working, you should remove the existing sash and inspect the track or jamb. Start your inspection with the balance, if you want single- or double-hung. Examine both sides of the windows and replace balances to continue. After removing the sash you need to check screws of casement windows whether they are loose or stripped. Depending on their condition, replace or tighten them. Then, use a product, which calles Alum-a-lub, to lubricate the hinges. In case of sliding windows, lubricate the track. Final step is inspecting rollers of the window for damage and replace it, if necessary.

The Most Common Types of Window Hardware

  1. Locks, if they’re broken, can become a difficult issue, while repairing the lock is generally much easier to do than replacing it. There are many reasons of its breaking, such as rust, hard use and even necessity for cleaning.
  2. Cranks, which are used for securing windows to make sure they will open and close in a proper way. Most of the time you don’t need to to replace the entire crank mechanism. Only a simple repair can remediate deficiencies. If the condition of the crank is poor, be sure that we will find the best new crank to replace it with.
  3. Latch, that is easy to break and equally to solve, but only with help of professionals. If you want to repair it by yourself, you need to inspect them carefully, because they pose great safety and security risks.
  4. Springs, using for balance, you can find in single and double hung windows. They help to raise and lower a sash of the window. If your sash has difficulties with raising or staiyng open, it means that your spring is broken.

Simple Steps to Identify and Purchase Your Window Operator for Replacing

For replacing the operator you should identify the type of window and select the number of arms on your operator whether it is a continious or a hinged. Then, choose the manufacturer and identify the window operator style. Now, it is time to measure the length of the operator arm, selecting the product.

Customer Reviews
  • Linda Steadman

    They know what they're doing and they are extremely professional. They came on time for both scheduled appointments, they quickly figured out what needed to be done, and when they returned to install the double paned glass, they were fast and clean. I would call them again in an instant.
  • Jean Reif

    Courteous and skilled workers who arrived soon after I received a text message that they were on their way. They determined that my two windows would not lock because the frames had warped. Since they could not repair them, I was not charged for the service call.

Why and When to Get Window Hardware Repair

We believe that windows are a face of your building – either it is a home or a workplace. They are easily one of the most important parts of it since they carry aesthetic and a lot of functional purposes.

Big working windows can save your money on artificial lightning, heating in winter and cooling in summer. Clean glass in them creates a beautiful look from outside and impression of a bigger space inside.

Yet they can have breakages too. Not enough maintenance, wearing and tearing, bad initial placement and so on – all of this leads to different problems. One of them is a breakage of windows’ inner technical system – balancer or equipment inside a frame. Signs of these problems are that windows are hard to open and close – or it is even impossible. Exact reasons for these types of problems are an imbalance in windows’ frames, breakage of handles or metal joints and clips, improper construction of sashes and so on.

To solve this kind of problems, consider repairing your windows. With broken window hardware, it includes fixing or replacing it – yet, not a reinstallment of a whole system.

About Window Hardware Repair

The process of window hardware repair looks like this:

  1. After buying a new balancer, it’s time to start a repair – take out each window clip and pop their bottoms with flat screwdrivers.
  2. Then it’s time to raise a window sash up – this allows clips to go off. Then push it either left or right and tilt inwards to remove.
  3. Remove an old window balancer by a firm press down on it. Take out a top part, lift a sash up to release a tension and remove a broken balancer.
  4. When equipment is installed, you are ready to place a sash back. To do so, press it into one side through a bottom attachment, and press another side into a frame. That’s it!

Replacement and repair of other equipment are done analogically. If it is a little challenging for you – order a commercial company service. This type of work won’t cost much at all and can be done in few minutes.

Ordering Window Hardware Repair

Without decent expertize – it’s better to outsource a work to professionals. And remember:

Beforehand to estimate the cost of their restoration on a turn-key basis – it will definately be cheaper, faster and less truoublesome than installation of new windows.

Choosing a Company to Do Window Hardware Repair

To choose a good company, look at their:

  • services;
  • portfolio;
  • user feedback;
  • “About us” text;
  • prices for work.

Note: higher price often means more value.
