Replacement of 3 upvc window locks that had seized and were unable to lock fully.

Called on Wednesday to enquire about a quote for replacing 3 upvc window locks that had seized, thus stopping the windows being fully closed/locked properly. Quote was very reasonable-£95 per window. Guys came on the Friday morning (COVID secure with masks, distancing and disinfecting) all the locks were repaired swiftly, all mess was cleaned and the works undertaken was fully explained too. Would highly recommend!

Bedroom window was stuck open.

Dan gave me an estimate over the phone after seeing a photo of the problem. The guys turned up the same day and replaced hinges quickly and efficiently without mess. I was also advised on how to stop the problem recurring. I would be happy to recommend this company – they are friendly, straightforward and efficient.

Locks replaced in front door and window lock repaired

I have used Dan a number of times for locks, main door and a window lock fixed. Every time Dan has been on time or early and is so quick to do a repair! He is courteous and extremely helpful and has also at times charged us less than we expected due to discovering the issue wasn’t as serious as originally thought. Can’t recommend high enough, don’t go anywhere else, we certainly won’t be!

Really pleased with Dan’s work, he completed the job quickly and him and his work colleague wore masks for their visit which I appreciated. Dan was friendly and courteous and kept in good contact about when the replacement window was ready. The new window looks excellent ! Their visit was a breeze and I’d definitely recommend Dan to others 🙂 cheers Dan!

Buying new windows VS window repair

Are UPVC windows and doors maintenance Free? Ask the Window repair Specialists.

Should you buy new windows and doors? or repair them?


When UPVC windows and doors were first introduced on the 90`s there main selling advantage was they were “Maintenance Free”. No Window repairs, No such thing! anything that has moving or operating parts can not be maintenance free. Wood windows should be treated/painted every year and hinges and locks serviced at the same time, And so do UPVC windows and doors. They don’t need painted but to freshen them up you can use a alcohol based solution/restorer which removes grime and makes them look new. The hinges should be lubricated once a year with silicone spray or graphite paste (we don’t use WD40 as it dries out parts over time) and the same treatment should be given to your window locking mechanism.


Maintaining your windows and doors will prolong their life and if these parts fail they can be easily replaced by us. We repair Window hinges, Window handles, Window mechanisms, Glass, Door cylinders, Door multi-point locking systems, Letterplates, Door hinges and door panels.

Buying new windows and doors can be very costly and finding a reliable company that will offer a guarantee that will outlive the companies are becoming difficult to find, an average UPVC window is £200-£250 fitted an average hinge repair is £55! it makes sense to repair it.

It might be a pain in the neck when a door doesn’t operate properly but more importantly it is a massive safety issue as your doors are a point of exit in an emergency. don’t hesitate to call us. We also supplied and fitted a new euro cylinder while we were there.

Window hinges and Door lock

Used Dan few times now. Excellent service. Excellent work. We had several windows in a rental property that wouldn’t open and shut . We were going to get them replaced as they were old. But Dan was able to repair and replace the hinges and made them good as new. And a door mechanism was causing issues with locking the door, replaced in no time. A lot of his materials are on his van so many occasions you will get a quick fix.

Problem with front door not closing reliably.

Called DR at 08:45 and was fortunate he was in our area and could fit us in. He arrived 09:15 and quickly assessed the component on the door that was causing our problem and was able to correct this expeditiously and to our complete satisfaction. Cost of job I fund very reasonable and the service provided out of this world. DR was a very personable, courteous and confident tradesman and would not hesitate to use him again if the need arose. Many thanks.
