If my double glazed units have steamed up do I need to buy a new window?

No. The double glazed unit is separate from the frame and can be removed and replaced with a new one without the need to remove the whole window.

When I close my window there is a gap between the frame and window on the hinge side. Can this be fixed?

Yes. The most common cause of gaps between the weather seal is a faulty hinge. These can be replaced making the window as good as new.

The handle on my PVC window appears to just spin and will not unlock the window. What can I do?

The cause of this problem could be either a broken drive bar within the handle itself or a broken gearbox on the locking espagnolette. You can determine which by removing the two screws in the handle and inspecting the handle and gearbox.

My rubber weather seals have shrunk and degraded, can I replace them?

Yes. House Doctors carry a large range of popular weather seals which we can fit or if you prefer we can supply only for you to fit.

Can I reduce heat loss through my windows and glass?

Yes. In most cases, modern double glazed units can be installed incorporating the latest heat saving technology. House Doctors can supply and install Planithem replacement units to keep your home warm and cosy and save pounds on your energy bills.

The wood grain foil effect on the exterior of my windows is beginning to fade, peel and crack, what can I do about it?

Sadly once the wood grain foil de-laminates from the surface of the plastic there is little that can be done to return it to its new look.

My windows are letting water in, what can be causing this?

Your windows are fitted with weather seals to reduce draughts and repel water. It is impossible to keep all water out of a modern uPVC window frame so drainage slots and machined into the frames to allow residual water to drain through special channels out onto the external window seal. If these slots become blocked it can cause water to build up in the lower frame and possibly seep onto your interior window board.
House Doctors can unblock the drain slots and improve weatherproofing by renewing the rubber seals.

The silicone sealant around my window frames has gaps and appears to be moldy, what can I do?

Most white silicone is subject discoloration and mold growth where condensation or water ingress provides the perfect condition for it to develop. House Doctors recommend complete removal of the silicone and cleaning up of the frames and plaster then reseal using an anti-mold grade, low modulus silicone.

How do I measure a hinge stack height?

The most common stack height size is either 13mm or 17mm. The stack height is measured with the hinge in the closed position and is the total height of all the metal arms when lined on top of each other. Click here to see an illustration. Click here
