Ram Exteriors Window Repair Services In Bucks and Montgomery County
Most commonly, the wood casing, sash or framing around a window will need repair, not the glass itself. This requires a carpenter who knows and understands the assembly of all types and ages of windows.
Sometimes in historical districts, a property owner is not allowed to replace the windows but can only have them restored.
Sometimes it doesn’t make cost sense to replace the window instead of repairing it.
Most often, you will want to repair instead of replace a window if you are concerned with maintaining the style or design.
Sometimes it is better to repair a Montgomery and Bucks County window until you are forced to replace it. Especially if you need to keep a certain style for the home and only have a small budget to work with.
When you are settled on a repair, you will want a professional to handle the project for you. There are so many things involved from correct measurement to mistakes made that can cost you a lot of money to get fixed.
Some Do’s and Don’ts for Your Window Repair
Here are a few things a home owner can do to help make a later replacement easier. Consider these tips when taking care of your windows at home, especially when painting.
- Ever paint over rotting or water damaged wood.
- Don’t ever paint over old, peeling paint.
- Don’t ever paint over fixtures, hinges, latches, locks, or any other metal pieces of your window.
- Always tape the window glass off prior to painting with tape meant for glass and be careful when removing the tape.
- Be sure there is caulking or silicone around the perimeter where the window meets the house where air or insects can get through.
One of the worst things that can happen when you get a window repair is when a contractor makes mistakes.
Manufacturer warranties will probably not cover the issue if certain things are not done. The warranty will only cover it if the window is installed using an approved or recommended method and only covers the window itself.
So, if you hire someone who does a shoddy job and doesn’t follow the “approved or recommended method”, the warranty will not cover the issue.
Not only that, but you could be penalized or fined by a local authority if a permit ore inspections are needed and not obtained.
