Window repairs are some of the most common issues to address in the home. Unfortunatley they can also be quite challenging. Our glass services addresses all of these needs; particularly in relation to double glazed units.
So what type of glazing services are available through D R Foster Windows and Doors.
Replacement Glazed Units
From time to time you'll find that glass units will need to be changed because of an increase in moisture or through breakage. A number of problems are caused due to atmospheric conditions exterted on the unit through its lifetime. Sun will cause the air to expand and with constant expansion and contraction along with weathering will force the seals apart, causing the build up of moisture, eventually the seals will fail. All of our sealed units have a dual seal, which helps prolong the lifespan of the unit. During the winter the opposite will occur, when units implode this time the pressure is greater on the outside, condensing the inside and causing parts to break. Whether your glass is in a door, window or roof, whether its energy efficient, acoustic, ant-sun or coloured glass, D R foster Windows and Doors will provide a fast efficent replacement service.
