Our team is Lead Safe and Certified where we remove existing cord rope and re-engage your window weights with new copper/zinc/brass sash chain or replace with new cord rope. Replace your existing Parting Bead wood with new customized stained or natural ‘Spanish Cedar” Parting Bead wood. The Parting Bead is vertical strip of wood where your windows slide up and down on. We also replace old windows that operate on a “Metal Tape Balance”.
We will remove any existing old aluminum tongue and groove weather-stripping and install a spring bronze weather-stripping to your window casing to tighten up your windows when opening and closing then add Spring-bronze Weather-stripping to help reduce drafts and increase energy efficiency.
Finally, we make sure your windows lock correctly, as well we can offer a variety of new window locks as needed.
**Windowrepair.com, Inc. adheres to state and federal EPA Best Practice guidelines by using HEPA (High-Efficiency Particulate Air) vacuums for on-site cleanups. HEPA differ from conventional vacuums in that they contain filters that are capable of trapping extremely small, micron-sized particles. A true HEPA filter can trap 99.97 percent of all airborne particles larger than 0.3 microns.
When all the impediments to motion have been removed a double-hung, rope and pulley window should move with the lightest pressure, almost fingertip effortless. When a good sweep lock is present and properly aligned, it pulls the middles together, and forces the top up and the bottom down, locking the whole assembly tightly.
Windowrepair.com restores and repairs only New England wood windows from the late 18th, 19th and early 20th century. We also offer Harvey Tru-Channel and Allied Storm Windows to not only insulate your home but to protect your wood windows.
