What are the different types of Sliding window repairs?
We do sliding window repairs to Aluminium and Timber windows. The most common is Aluminium since most homes built after the 1970’s had aluminium. However we still do a lot of timber sliding window repairs.

If the window can be repaired then I would defiantly go with a sliding window repair. Most sliding windows can be repaired.

Our sliding windows are very difficult to open because they scrape and scratch and make a horribly noise. I need a sliding window repair, that’s for sure! But can they be repaired? Can new rollers be fitted to the window?
The most common sliding window repair involves the removal and refitting of new rollers. We can replace the window rollers on both aluminium and timber sliding windows. When I open and close my sliding window it makes so much noise that it wakes my baby. I really need a window repair as soon as possible or maybe a new window. The window is usually noisy because the sliding window rollers have worn out, such that the moving part is coming into contact with the frame. We can replace the sliding window rollers and that should make the window quiet.
My sliding window needs repair because it will not lock when I shut it. Will a sliding window repair replacing the rollers enable me to lock the window securely?
Yes, the window may not be locking properly because the sliding rollers have collapsed. This prevents the lock from lining up properly. A sliding window repair which involves window roller replacement will fix this problem.
I need my kitchen window to open and close properly when I am cooking but It keeps jamming, so I need a sliding window repair if possible. Can this be done?
I agree that ventilation in the kitchen especially at cooking time is very important. We can usually fix this sort of problem with a sliding window repair.
My sliding door rollers are worn-out and the sliding door track is scratched a bit. Can you repair the sliding door track as well?
Yes we can of course replace the door rollers. We also carry twelve different sliding door tracks in the vans which we have especially made to suite all the different designed sliding doors. We determine what track is best for each particular job and then we fit that sliding door track.
When I slide my window closed it makes a loud bang everybody can hear. will your sliding window repair be able to fix that?
The reason your window is making a loud bang is because you have to push it hard to get it to move and then, when it is sliding fast, it stops when it bangs into the frame causing the loud noise. A sliding window repair involving the replacement of the window rollers would mean that you would not have to push the window so hard to get it to move and so it would not close so fast and bang into the frame.
