Window Overhauls

Planned maintenance is the most cost-effective way to maintain assets and to achieve outstanding resident satisfaction

UPVC Window lifespans can vary between 15 and 35 years, Aluminium windows are generally more durable and as such, aluminium windows and doors are expected to have a life expectancy of 45 years, depending on the level of maintenance carried out on them.

For both UPVC and Aluminium windows the lifespan can be extended by regular window maintenance, and replacement of components such as handles and hinges (which have a shorter lifespan than the frames and sashes).

Our trained engineers will be happy to come and undertake a full condition survey and deliver a fully costed proposal back to you enabling you to plan budgets and project cash-flow.

Our programmes are designed around you, we will work to your timescales, and in line with your budgetary plans.

Some things you should think about if your windows and doors have been installed for 10 years or more:

The most likely areas of failure will be that seals are likely to no longer have their original manufactured elasticity and integrity, and hardware will no longer operate as easily as it originally did. This is normal, these products are simply not designed to last for the life-time of the whole window. You have not been sold inferior products, it is just their natural life-cycle. Maintaining or if necessary, replacing these products is critical to the continued good performance of the window as a whole.

Faulty seals can lead to draughts, water ingress and general resident discomfort, while locks, handles and hinges which are not operating properly are often put under undue force by residents trying to make them work as they originally did to maintain their comfort, safety and security.

Window Overhauls Summary

  • Our trained engineers will come and undertake a full condition survey of all your windows and doors within a designated street, estate, block of flats, sheltered accommodation or other residence type.
