Since the first lockdowns of covid 19 we at D’Best Door and Window Repairs have been coming up with ways to ensure customers are safe in their homes and also our technicians are well and safe also, it has become increasingly hard for us to ensure social distancing and safety protocols, that’s why we decided to bring our Door and Window Parts Online so that customers who felt they had enough experience in home repairs that they could tackle jobs like replacing seals on windows and doors, replacing french door locking mechanisms or replacing front door handles.
Some homeowners have found it challenging to say replace the Patio Door roller/wheels and patio door tracks but we have helped them by ensuring that they have information on hand and hints and tips on replacing these door parts.
Some jobs are easy per se but can become tricky, such as window hinges, small 8 inch or 10 inch top hung window hinges are easy to replace once you watch our videos on replacing window hinges, side hung window hinges are ok, but you may need some experience due to the weight of them, however, when the window is large, like the 24 inch top hung full opening windows, these are extremely heavy and changing upstairs window hinges can be dangerous if safety protocols and working at height safety protocols are not followed.
Other jobs like replacing window handles are pretty straightforward when you have some basic tools, but you need to be sure you have the right handles, inline window handles are normally on PVC windows, the curved offset is used on PVC windows too, however, they’re used when the sash side is close to the frame, this curved offset window handle allows the hand room. then there is cockspur window handles, these are used mostly on aluminum windows, but I have seen them on some wooden windows.
Our door handles can be used on Composite doors, wooden doors, (usually Munster Joinery doors in Ireland) PVC doors, and Aluminium doors, remember to ensure you have the right PZ (our diagrams have instruction on measuring the door handles).
Once you have gotten some experience you may want to try to replace your door locking mechanism or window locking mechanism, these are a job where a competent home maintenance DIY’r can undertake but ensure you have the right backset and size for your door or windows.
Maybe you would like to replace your old PVC Door Insert Panel with a new one, a whole new look for your front door for a fraction of the price of a new door. We have a large selection of Replacement Door Insert Panels for PVC Front Doors.
Finally, if all else fails and you just decide to go with fitting your own New PVC doors, PVC Windows, French Doors, Patio doors, Sash Windows or Palladio Composite Front Doors, then we do these also on our Online Designer Tool for Online Door and Window Designing, Disng your dream Doors and Windows, design, order and pay on our website 24hrs a day.
