If you want to know how to maintain the quality of your windows on installation, or require any surface repairs on your existing UPVC windows, then feel free to ask the installers for information on general maintenance as they fit your windows. But, here are some small tips and reminders, that may prove useful.
For surface repairs such as scratches and small indentations, you can purchase kits that provide a touch up and fill the damage. For maintenance, cleaning your windows regularly, using the recommended cleaner for your windows can prevent and minimalize this kind of damage.
For structural damage, such as hinges and locks, this can be fixed by replacing the multi-lock mechanisms that are placed within the frame of the UPVC door or any in your windows. This service can be provided by any locksmith or window fitters. For, example, the multi lock system that is put into many UPVC double glazing windows, has several bolts or hooks that when aligned with your frame, fit or slot into the corresponding fitting on the door frame or the main window panel. This means that your windows locking feature does not have a weak point and is less likely to be penetrable by a burglar or vandal. Often this locking is achieved when you lift your door or window handle upwards. However, if the door is forced or rammed into place this can cause the lock to misalign, meaning no matter how hard you try, it may not lock. We hope this helps.
