Affordable Window Repair to fit your budget
Most people aren’t aware of the vast selection of window types that are available today. The type of window that you want for your home will depend on a number of things including the age of the home, and even materials used during construction of the home. Unfortunately it’s not always as simple as just picking what you want and throwing it up on the wall!
It’s important to take the time to consult with a window repair professional to help you find the answers to your questions. A window repair technician is specially trained to fix many window problems that most people just don’t know how to do. For example, there are a number of minor problems that will pop up with double paned windows and most people just automatically think the window needs to be replaced when in reality, it just needs a little TLC. At O’Fallon Windows & Doors, we can work with you identify whether or not a window can be saved or if the whole thing should be replaced. We want to work with you to make sure that your decision will be the best for you economically and aesthetically. Here are some clear giveaways that your windows might just need a little repair job instead of an entire replacement:
1.The Aesthetics. Are your windows stained, dusty, or even a little hazy? It’s normal for yoru windows to accumulate dust and hard water after years of repeated exposure to the elements. Even if a good window cleaning can’t remove the stains and marks, it may just be a simple glass pane swap.
2.Cracked and chipped glass. Does your window have minor damage, small holes, or chips? Upon examination, we can determine if a silicone sealant will do the trick. In some cases the cracks might be a little too extreme and beyond saving the window, but in some cases we can seal the areas with minor damage and save the window.
3.Window Gaskets. The gaskets that seal window panes don’t have an extremely long lifespan, at least in comparison with the rest of the window. Many windows can remain strong for 1-2 decades, the window gaskets won’t last that long. We can supply you with the correct gasket that will fit to your window and bring it back up to quality standards.
4.Window Seals. A faulty window seal may result in residue build up on the window. This can be fixed by a quick replacement of the glass pane.
In some cases we can revitalize the existing windows with a minor repair job which can be nice, especially when you’re budgeting or your windows are brand new and you don’t want to replace them. Watch out for these and other symptoms that might lead you to believe your windows could use some help. We’re just a phone call away, give us a call and we’ll come out to help.
