Should You Repair or Replace?
Different window problems require different solutions. This guide will help you know whether it’s wiser to replace a window or look for a repair for the most common problems. You are welcome to contact us if you need more expertise about your particular window repair problem. We ask customers to bring windows to our factory for repair service.
Broken glass can usually be repaired on vinyl windows.
Foggy Glass and/or Drafts
Often, this is an indicator of leaky seal. While vinyl windows can often be repaired, wood and aluminum windows usually cannot be.
Interior grids that fall will require a replacement. External grids can only be fixed if the original manufacturer still produces replacements.
Hardware is specific to the manufacturer of the window, so you will need to check with the manufacturer to see if replacement hardware is available. Taylors Windows® can replace hardware for windows we manufacture.
Windows that Don’t Work or that Fall Down
You will probably need a replacement window.
Screens can generally be repaired or replaced.
Drafts are generally caused by old weather stripping. If this is the problem, weather stripping can be replaced, as long as the right size is available. If drafts are caused by inferior manufacturing, the windows will need to be replaced.
Painting or Maintenance for Appearance
This is generally a problem with older wooden windows. Painting is usually a temporary solution in this case. Most vinyl windows, including the ones we manufacture, will not need painting or general maintenance.
