Draughty or Leaking Windows

If your double glazed windows have become draughty, it will usually be caused by one or all of the following issues:

  • Failed hinge (Friction stay)
  • Perished Seals or Gaskets
  • Broken Mechanism (Espag)

Our team makes light work of any common hinge, seal and lock failures in UPVC double-glazed windows while carrying an array of likely replacement parts in our van.

Hinge not pulling in against seals

Failed Hinge (Friction Stay)

When hinges fail, as often happens in older units, the sash gets loose and no longer seals tightly to the frame.

This leads to draughts and potential leaks. Sometimes windows can’t even fully close, creating security risks. But we keep common hinge sizes in the van to replace immediately. 

Broken Mechanism (Espag)

Forceful cranking of handles deteriorates espag locks on window edges eventually. Windows consequently either stick closed or open unsecured continuously after.

Nonetheless, Sussex Double Glazing Repairs’ technicians first repair any immobilised espags. Then we swapped reinforced replacements kept supplied in our van to re-establish household safety.

Broken Window Handles

Broken Window Handle

UPVC double-glazed window handles fail often – the push buttons specifically, popping out after breaking. Or worse, full handles shear off in hand during use.

No worries though, our experts swap damaged handles easily. We stock common versions right in the van to restore window operation on the initial visit. For fast service call Dale at 07881 407 764.

Seals & Gaskets

Prolonged weathering fossilises UPVC window seals, eventually, they shrink and split. Drafts/spills result in formed crevices. Hardware then binds too from the emerging window imbalance.

Contact Sussex Double Glazing Repairs quickly to replace damaged seals before extensive repairs set in.


UPVC windows can develop issues such as misted or foggy glass, warped frames, sticking mechanisms, loose hinges, or damage to rubber seals. Identifying these problems early can help prevent further damage and costly repairs.

Assessing the condition of your UPVC window is crucial in deciding whether repair or replacement is the best course of action. Look for signs like water ingress, visible cracks, difficulty in operation, or excessive drafts to determine the extent of the damage.

The time taken to repair a UPVC window can vary depending on factors such as the complexity of the issue, availability of replacement parts, and the expertise of the repair technician. Simple repairs may be completed within hours, while more extensive repairs could take longer.

Choosing to repair your UPVC windows instead of replacing them contributes positively to the environment by reducing waste and conserving resources. Repairing existing windows minimises the need for new materials and energy-intensive manufacturing processes associated with window replacement.
