HIGH QUALITY WINDOW REPAIRS IN CONSETT
J.E.D are commited to extending the life of your existing windows,doors and conservatories by replacing the worn or damaged components such as locks handles glass and hinges. When the cost of replacing these components makes the repair to the window uneconomical, we can replace the window with a new up to date window with all  the latest insulation and security benefits.

We are commited to extending the life of your existing windows throughout Consett.
STEAMY WINDOWS
In the trade we say that the double glazed sealed unit has 'broken down'. This means that the perimeter edge seal has lost it's integrity and that it is letting in moisture somewhere. The moisture itself is hard to spot at first, sometimes becoming only visible as the sun or another heat source 'draws' the moisture up. Typically the moisture will be drawn in as the atmospheric pressure changes, and it will build up eventually condensing into water inside the sealed unit. The double glazed unit can be replaced without the cost of replacing the frame, and at that stage it is a good option to upgrade to a high energy glass such as Pilkington K glass or a gas filled unit which will provide a higher insulation benefit to the customer.
WINDOW HINGE REPAIR
Both aluminium and PVCu window frames with opening window sash use stainless steel friction hinges. These hinges allow the sash to open to various positions of ventilation. However due to wear and tear the hinges become floppy and dont locate correctly, causing draughts and difficulty when operating the handle to close the window. Replacing the hinges will correct the problem.
WINDOW HANDLE REPAIR
Older Aluminium and PVCu windows are often fitted with "cockspur handles", a simple device with no concealed workings which lock against a plastic pressure pad. These were slowly replaced with "espagnolete handles where the mechanism is concealed within the edge of the window frame, providing a number of  locking points depending on the size of window. New handles will not only provide better security but will also make the window look more up to date and stylish, available in various colours and finishes.
WINDOW LOCK REPAIR
The locking of the older "cockspur " handle is mainly provided by a simple key, however new handles have a conventional key to lock which look more stylish and modern. The espagnolete mechanism is operated by a handle usually fitted with a push button to lock or unlock, backed up with a built in key lock for extra security. However the mechanism which is concealed within the edge of the frame will wear with age making locking the window more difficult or even impossible. We carry these locking mechanisms in stock and replacement will return the window to its original condition.
CONDENSATION
Condensation on the room side of a double glazed window is generally caused by poor ventilation which in turn is an indication that the air in the room has a high moisture content. We all strive to make our homes better insulated against draughts and because of this our rooms are becoming like sealed boxes, this in turn means that moist air from cooking, bathing, or just breathing is trapped within the room. The coldest point in a room will usually be the glass,  the moist air will condense onto the glass and we can plainly see it. We can of course improve this with double glazed units and high energy glass. However if we do not reduce the amount of moisture in the air, the condensation will manifest itself in other places like behind wardrobes and cupboards, causing decoration problems. By using a dehumidifier in conjunction with the double glazing you will reduce the amount of moisture in the room so improving the air quality and also increase the effectiveness of the double glazing.
