Window repair

If your window has been smashed by accident or during a break-in, you’ll know that you need to get it repaired. Luckily, a window installer or glazier can usually make repairs easily without you having to replace an entire window.

It’s easy to know when you’ll need a window repair when it’s been smashed or the frame has broken. But there are other tell-tale signs when a window repair might be the best thing to do.

When to get a window repaired

  • When you can hear lots of outside noise
    If you’re hearing a lot of outside noise through your window, it’s probably because it’s letting air in somewhere. Not only is this annoying, but it also means that air will be escaping – costing you more in your heating bills. You might also feel a draught which will tell you your window needs repairing.
  • If you see water around the window
    If water is pooling around the windowsill on the inside of your home, it’s time to get a professional to look at it. Your window will need a repair if it’s letting in water as it could lead to damp and mould in the surrounding walls, which could cause significant damage to your property.
  • The inside of the glass is misting up
    Double glazing is made up of two panes of glass separated by a spacer to create a sealed unit. When the sealed unit fails, or is ‘blown’, air can get in between the panes and cause condensation. It won’t be as thermally efficient anymore, so it’s important to get a new sealed unit put into the window. Some installers may be able to offer a temporary repair, but it won’t last long.
  • If the windows get difficult to open and close
    If your window is getting tough to open and close, it’s time to get it repaired. If the frames are warped heat could be escaping and cold air could be getting in, so your heating bills could rise.
  • If there are signs of mould or rot
    If water has been pooling around your windows, especially in wooden frames, you could get damp and rot. If you don’t get the windows repaired, the problem will get worse and you could end up needing replacement windows.

Will repairing my windows save me money?

Getting your windows repaired will almost certainly save you money. If heat is escaping from your windows, you’ll have to use more energy to heat your home, therefore costing you more money. Even with efficient windows, you’ll still lose heat from them, so you need to ensure that your windows are kept in good condition.

Plus, if you repair your windows before the damage is irreparable, you won’t have to fork out for costly replacement windows until much later down the line.

Window repair FAQs

How to repair or replace a double glazed unit?

Are you about to purchase a double glazed unit and wondering how to go about the replacement project? If yes, then you’re at the right place. Firstly, it’s advisable to hire the services of a reliable professional who can guarantee the best results for help especially if you lack proper training and experience in the field. However, we’ve put together this step by step guide to provide you with a detailed information about the double glazed unit replacement process. Let’s get started!

The tools and materials you require for the project includes tape measure, hammers, nail punch, scraper, spacing blocks, non-hardening butyl putty, high-security glazing tape rolls and beading tacks.

• Work out the glass size required. Simply use the tape measure to measure from frame edge to frame edge while also taking note of the thickness.

• When about to order, inform the glass merchant that the measurement provided are frame-tight. This will make him reduce the dimension a little bit, mostly by 5mm for clearance.

• Remove the beading and ensure to support the glass while doing so. If the glass units are fitted in wooden windows, you may need to cut the putty-based compound they’re normally sealed with to remove the glass.

• Lay out the beading in the window’s shape to make for easier refitting later on.

• If you’re working on wooden frames, wipe out all traces of excess installation compound using a scraper and clean the rebate with a soft brush.

• Trial fit the double glazed windows to ensure they’d slide into the frame without being forced.

• Plastic frame windows are usually in between a pair of gaskets, you should replace this with a hight security glazing tape. While for a wooden frame, simply apply strips of flexible non-setting butyl putty or high-security glazing tape on either sides of the glass.

• Install and centralize the glass in the frame.

• Press the nail wooden beading or plastic beading back into place.

How much is window repair?

Accidents happen, and sometimes windows get broken. And that will lead to you wanting to replace just the glass in your window, rather than the whole frame. Also, as windows get older they can mist up on the inside, which means that the unit has ‘blown’ - so you’ll also need to replace the glass. But how much is it to replace the glass in a window? Luckily, if the frame of your window is in good condition, there’s no need to replace it, and this will reduce the cost. For an installer to fit a new pane of glass in a single glazed window, the average cost is £100, while a replacement double glazed sealed unit will cost an average of £110. Of course, as this is an average, if your window is very large you may spend more, and if your window is very small the price may be less. That's why it’s important to get a range of quotes so you can compare costs and get the best price. If you’re good at DIY, you may feel confident enough to have a go at replacing the glass in your window yourself. In that case, the cost of sealed unit and any other materials you need will cost an average of £57. It’s a significant saving, and if you think you can do it, then give it a try. However, if you’re in any way unsure, it’s best to leave it to the professionals. A window installer will be able to replace the glass in your window in less than an hour. Even though it costs more for a professional to do it, if you get it wrong and have to start over it will cost you more in the long run.
