Velux Window Repairs
Springfield Developments offers an outstanding service on the repair and maintenance of all types of Velux windows, from flat Velux windows to the more common standard GGL Velux windows. The most common problems which we encounter are:
- Misted up Velux glass units (also know as fogged up/blown)
- Condensation on the Velux
- Cracked Velux window glass
- Sticking / hard to open Velux windows
Replacement Velux Glass
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 noise reduction Velux Glass or due to the fact that your existing Velux glass unit has failed or cracked.
When the glazing unit has deteriorated the level of insulation is greatly reduced. By simply installing a noise reduction Velux Glass 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.
Velux Glass Options
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:
- K-glass/Low-E/Soft coat
- Argon gas filled
- Warm-edge spacer bar
- Self cleaning glass
Finding The Code Of Your Velux Window
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:
- Production code
Draughts From A Velux Window
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
Velux Window Seals
The seals are developed to provide air tightness, but over the years they can become stiff and brittle. This tends to happen in units that are more than 10 years old. We can replace your gaskets to maintain the air tightness and restore your windows like new.
Re-insulation Of A Velux Window
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.
Installation Of A Velux Window
If your frame and sash are incorrectly aligned this can also cause a draught issue. One of the checks we carry out determines this.
