Are you interested in an aluminum storm window repair? Well here is a brief but useful article that will give you a review and a step-by-step guide to how you can go about doing this.

I have previously shared on various topics such as: window replacement tax credit 2009, rate best replacement windows and 2009 top replacement windows and today I will expand on this briefly.

There are lots of ways in which you carry out an aluminum storm window repair. I will provide you with what has worked for me and others. I have talked but of course you can get other ideas from other experts. I recommend you read the article to the end before deciding on anything.

The reason why I mention the differing ideas is because I understand that not all windows get damaged in the same manner hence not all the repairing information will be standard. For example some may have damaged glazing, scratches or cracks and some may have problems with the sash, which causes them to have some sliding problems.

Here are some few ideas you can think about for your aluminium storm window repair.

Are they scratched, cracked or do they have damaged glazing? In this case in order to fix the aluminium storm windows you might have to remove the storm sash or the screen. Then remove the glazing, which is usually glass or acrylic plastic.

You may notice that the corners are fastened by metal keys in this case you will need to remove the screws to remove some of the corners – one or maybe two. If you discover that they are crimped then an awl could be used to remove the vinyl splints that are used to secure the glazing.

Once you have completed all that you can then install the new glazing (2mm). Just make sure that you make it smaller than the inside frame measurement in order to enable some contraction and expansion. Just put the glazing vinyl on the glass and then press it into the frame. Then assemble the corers. when you are dealing with crimps frames just lay the glass in the frame and just press the vinyl weather seal so that it clicks in to the joint between the frame and glass.
