How to Repair Triple Glazing

Maintenance

Properly maintaining your windows may prevent you from ever looking for guides on “how to repair triple glazing” or looking for someone to carry out repairs. For optimum performance triple glazing will need to be check and maintained from time to time.

Jobs like repainting and cleaning are easily done for most people and can help prevent deterioration. If you have timber framed triple glazing (as many people do) manufacturers generally recommend a repaint after ten years, this is not to say you should leave you windows unchecked for ten years. Windows facing south will deteriorate faster than those facing east or west, this is due to the temperature changes they face from the sun. Corners and bottoms of windows will deteriorate first, checking them every so often will give you notice of when a repaint is needed.

Checking hinges and handles to make sure they are in working orders and oiling them from time to time will prevent them from seizing up. If the windows have locks then these should be checked regularly as should all seals, any breaks in a seal will create draughts and cold spots.

Triple glazing window sealant can be purchased from most hardware stores and is easily applied.
