The sound of breaking glass is one of those internationally recognized uh-oh moments. Doesn't matter where you come from, that familiar crash and the heart breaking tinkling sound of smaller glass shards falling from a broken window mean trouble in any language. A broken window isn't just an inconvenience, it can be dangerous with glass shards as effective as any knife at causing injury to family members and pets. It's also the sign of an immediate practical problem since a broken pane means the elements now have ingress to your property and wind and rain will be making their way in as soon as they can. But there's another more emotional reason why the sound of breaking glass has such a powerful effect. Broken windows mean that your property is no longer secure; that your perimeter has been breached and is vulnerable. Whether we're talking about your family home, or your precious business location that's critical, which is why you want to know that one call brings the pros to your property to fix it.
Glass repair is actually such a broad subject that you'll find a whole section dedicated to it on this site but the key thing to remember is that while everyone pictures a broken pane if we discuss window repair there are actually a lot of things going on there. The first is to decide why that glass broke. If there's a baseball or a house brick sitting on the inside of your broken window you have a pretty good clue but in many cases a damaged window means that the window was perhaps not designed to stand up to the pressure it faces. So sure we repair broken glass, but we also analyze whether you need tougher glass, strengthened glass, or double glazing because we don't just fix the breakages – we look to make your windows better, stronger than before and more fit for the purpose they are clearly performing.
Insulation and Reduced Fuel Bills
Windows don't have to feature smashed glass to require repair. As they age and weather plays its part many windows will shift in their frames and not seal so well. Older windows were installed with little thought for insulation and over time that only gets worse which is something that you will feel in your wallet even if the window itself isn't obviously broken. So when we say window repair we don't just mean broken glass but repairing the mechanism of a window to better do its job and save you money in the process on your utility bills.
Double Hung Windows
Got double hung sash windows? Lucky you but as those beauties age the sashes weaken and the jamb liners can warp so the sash window no longer slides smoothly or gets stuck partly open. We can fix old double hung sash windows just as happily as modern double glazing.
Any Size or Shape
French doors, double or triple pane glass, garage door windows; you name it, we can replace that glass and frame for you because our specialists have access to a huge range of replacement materials as well as the technical skills to cut to size for any tailored window repair.
