Windows Repairs - Ambassador Windows

Don't replace your windows just because they are old and draughty!

If you have PVC windows almost every part can be replaced leaving your windows better than the day you got them, and at a fraction of the cost of new windows. Many people believe that the windows that they have were "a bad job", "cheap", "Celtic Tiger era" or "fitted by cowboys". They may be right on one or more of these but the majority of problems with these windows are easily fixed and cost very little when compared to a good quality replacement window. Maybe the windows were always draughty, difficult to close, had loose handles or locks that didn't seem very good. Perhaps the problems started within a couple of years?

It doesn't matter about the history of the windows; Ambassador Window Repairs can replace all the faulty parts and even give you a guarantee on the new parts. We repair any type of window. Aluminium windows from the 1970's use the same type of hinges that are used on the most modern triple glazed alu-clad windows today.

If you have a window that is not working properly or you have a question about a window, simply phone us and ask for a quotation. We can quote for the window repair that you need over the phone. If you prefer, you can take a photo of your window and email it to us with a short description of the problem. It costs you nothing to enquire and a simple repair could reduce the draughts in your home, make your windows more secure and give you peace of mind.

Some people will attempt a window repair themselves and many simple window repairs can be carried out by someone with a little DIY skill. Do be careful though. We have seen windows fall from height, glass broken and windows damaged beyond repair by handymen. On PVC and aluminium windows many parts that look the same are not always the same.

If we take the example of a common window lock, the Espagnolette. They range in length from 4 inches to 4 foot. A popular length is around 2 feet long, but there are 18 variations on this size lock. Forcing the wrong lock into a window can damage the window, break the glass or cause the new lock to wear out prematurely. Similarly, and more importantly, having the correct window hinge on your window is vital.

Most hinges look exactly the same and will work fine in the wrong location, however if the hinges on your bedroom window are not a fire escape egress type then you may find it impossible to escape in the event of a fire. Conversely, there is a trend for window suppliers to use egress hinges on all their windows. Unfortunately, egress hinges do not last as long as counterbalanced hinges and they are prone to being damaged by wind. Thus should only be used where they are necessary.
