7 Window Repair Fixes for a Pro
  1. 1. The size of your window

    Some simple breaks, cracks or leaks cannot be solved without replacing your entire window. It's necessary to have a window inspection by a pro to determine the severity of any problem.

  2. 2. Your window style

    Some of the unique features that define your window's style include casement, picture, sliding, sash and bay. Different styles may need different accessories and tools to repair.

  3. 3. The type of window material

    Aluminum and vinyl windows are inexpensive to repair and maintain because they do not rust. Wood is susceptible to rot and requires regular maintenance.

  4. 4. Rotting wood

    Rot around your frames and sashes could lead to penetration of air and water leaks into the house. Have rotting wood repaired if the damage is scant, but replaced if it's worse.

  5. 5. Broken window panes

    For vintage, aluminum-clad, and multi-pane custom windows, repairing is advisable. But for vinyl windows, it won't be costly to replace them.

  6. 6. Broken seals

    Contractions and expansions caused by heat can lead to condensation between coatings and panes, resulting in broken seals. Having a new sash or pane installed is an ideal way to protect your frames.

  7. 7. Cranky windows

    If your windows fail to open smoothly, it may be caused by hardware breaks or grit in window tracks. A window pro can replace the broken parts to fix the issue.
