Question DetailsAsked on 5/29/2015

Who will repair sagging casement windows? I have tried carpenters, window people and handymen with no luck.

When u open the casement window, it sags, so when u try to close it, it won't close. You have to go outside and push it up and in. I have also called antique window restoration companies without luck.

Can't find anyone who will repair casement windows after an exhaustive search.

If u can refer me to someone who repairs casements in the Boston area, I would appreciate it.

Thanks

If its the old steel casement, the black iron type, forgetta bout it. It just aint worth it. Unless your home is in a historic or landmark status. The metal frames cunduct heat and cold, the single pane glass does nothing to stop heat transfer especially up north. If its a newer type window made of wood thats not yet fully rotted or an older vinyl window thats not on the edge of seal failure, you may want to track down the original manufacturer and or installation company. First off is it repairable ? Is it worth the expense or repairs to still have an old window not up to todays insulation requirements, How long will the repair last ? Get three estimates to replace them with high performance replacement windows, check the u.s. dept. of energy web site to learn how to find quality performance ratings. Every company says they are the best, most are a far cry off the mark. Learn about the N.F.R.C. ratings at the energy star web site. Before you buy. Knowledge is power.

Hi again, these are wood casement windows, 51 years old. It seems casement windows are double the cost or more to buy and install over double hung windows so I would like to repair them. Unfortunately, Alison doesnt repair casements and I'm not in Linda's service area.


Any other ideas appreciated. Thanks for your replies. I'm on the Boston area.
