About UPVC window hinge repairs
If your windows are letting in drafts, water, or noise, or if they have gaps around the edges, then your window hinges are likely broken or on their way out.

Our specialist tools allow us to carry out repairs in the trickiest of locations, on top hung, side hung windows, and tilt and turn windows, without the need for expensive scaffolding.
We carry all the most common types and sizes of hinge on the van so we can repair the majority of windows on the first visit, and for any that we don’t have, we can order for next-day delivery.
Why UPVC window hinges fail
UPVC window hinges tend to fail because they have been neglected and not maintained, or just through repeated use and wear and tear. Over time the parts on the hinge wear and get loose and once they do, the alignment and tightness of the window go, resulting in either the window not closing properly, gaps forming around the window, and water or draughts coming inside.
Common hinge problems to look out for:
- Window not opening or shutting properly
- Draughts coming through the window
- Water coming through the window
- Gaps around the edge of the window.
The good news is that all these issues can be fixed without having to replace the whole window, saving you money. We can replace your hinges and realign the window, which will fix any problems you have and give you the use of your window back, and at a very affordable cost.
Another hinge service we offer is UPVC window hinge upgrades. We can change your standard hinges to the following:
Egress: Egress hinges are used where the window needs to be used as an emergency exit. They allow for extra space when opened, making it easier to exit through in cases of emergency.
Restricted: Restricted hinges allow limited opening and are often used on upper-floor children’s windows. They have a lever that can be depressed to allow full opening.
Easy clean: Easy clean hinges work in a similar way to egress hinges and allow for the window to open wider than normal. Once opened up, you can access both sides of the window, allowing for easier cleaning.
