Velux Window Repairs
Premium Roofing offers an outstanding service on the repair and maintenance of all types of Velux windows throughout North Wales & Cheshire - from flat roof windows to the more common standard roof windows.
The most common problems which we encounter are:
- Misted up glass units (also know as fogged up/blown)
- Cracked glass units
- Sticking / hard to open hinges
- Replacement Velux Glass Units
There are a couple of reasons why you may want your existing Velux glass unit replacing – whether it is just to upgrade to a new low-energy pane or due to the fact that your existing glass unit has failed or cracked.
When the glazing unit has deteriorated the level of insulation is greatly reduced. By simply installing a brand new low-energy pane you will not only be extending the operational term of your Velux window, but also helping to reduce your energy costs and carbon copy on the environment.
Our service engineers will be pleased to offer advice on choosing the right type of glass for you – whether you choose our standard toughened glass units or would like to upgrade to:
- TK-glass/Low-E/Soft coat
- TArgon gas filled
- TWarm-edge spacer bar
- TSelf cleaning glass
So that we can give you an accurate quotation, we need the code - this is located in the top right corner of the top sash behind the ventilation flap. It looks like this:
Draughts in Velux windows
If you are experiencing draughts through your Velux window, this can be caused by a number of issues:
- needing a replacement glass unit
- faulty gaskets
- re-insulation of the lining
- the window not being installed incorrectly/out of square
- Faulty Gaskets
The gaskets are developed to provide airtightness, but over the years they can become stiff and brittle. This tends to happen in units that are more than 10 years old. Premium Roofing can replace your gaskets to maintain the airtightness and restore your windows like new.
Re-insulation of the Lining
If you place you hand on the side of the lining, does this feel colder than the inner wall? If so, the lining should be dismounted and re-insulated.
If your frame and sash are incorrectly aligned this can also cause a draught issue. One of the checks we carry out determines this.
Hints and Tips on Maintaining Your Velux Windows
At Premium Roofing we like to help our customers by offering free advice (if we can) on how you can help prolong your Velux windows’ life.
Condensation seems to be a major concern and is actually perfectly normal (this is where droplets of water form on the outside of the glass unit). Simply by opening your window a couple of times a day helps with the rooms’ ventilation and should solve the problem.
If your pivot hinge seems to be sticking or is becoming harder to move, simply spray with WD-40 or apply grease! It is recommended that you do this once a year. If this doesn’t solve the problem then contact us.
