- Problem: The double-hung or slider windows don’t lock.
Cause: The sashes don’t meet, the frame has shifted to be out of square, the interlock is warped or bent, or the lock is broken.
HWR (Home Window Repairs) Solution: We adjust the frame to be square in the opening, thus allowing the sash a full range of motion. If the sashes have warped over time, so that they won’t seal even after you can lock the windows, we’ll fix that too.
- Problem: You can’t open your windows.
Cause: There is a faulty balancer
HWR Solution: We replace the balancer.
- Problem: The sashes don’t interlock and lock
Cause: The plastic is warped.
HWR Solution: We heat the plastic to reform the shape of the meeting rail.
- Problem: Vinyl can warp over time and windows won’t close properly.
Cause: Sun can warp the vinyl. Additionally, if a problem is left unresolved for an extended amount of time, the vinyl will have a memory, and warp in wrong positions causing it not to close or slide properly.
HWR Solution: We heat and stretch vinyl.
