Avoid buying new windows and have us simply repair your hardware.


Faulty hardware can impair the proper functioning of windows, leading to further expenses and comfort/safety issues. Causes of damage include impact, weather, misuse, and wear and tear. Additionally, faulty hardware can also lead to security issues. Windows that don’t lock properly can be a safety hazard, and make it easier for intruders to gain access to your home. Regular maintenance and inspection of your windows can help you identify and repair hardware damage before it becomes a serious problem.

In casement windows, damaged components may include cranks, hinges, locks, guides, and handles. Double hung windows may require repair for jamb liners, balances, locks, tilt latches, and rope/pulley systems. When windows can’t close properly due to hardware damage, air escapes the home and raises energy bills. At Window Makeover, we have the expertise and experience to repair any type of window hardware. Our technicians use only high-quality replacement parts and follow strict industry standards to ensure a seamless repair. With our comprehensive repair services, you can rest assured that your windows will function properly and securely for years to come.
