Windows should fit precisely to seal correctly and avoid gaps that create draughts. Quality handles and locks are worth the investment for longer life.

We will fit new uPVC windows from scratch. We remove old windows and fit new uPVC window to your choice, so if you want to bypass the extra sales and marketing fees of big companies come to LBP direct. Our specialist builder has only recently joined the team. We don’t work on sash windows anymore.
Glass & double glazing
We repair cracked and smashed uPVC window glass. Sometimes they lose (pop) the seal and you can see condensation on the inside, the result will be misted glass and a loss of insulation. We will measure up accurately, replace the seals and glass.
“Child safety is important”
Child safety restrictors
We fit child lock safety catches on uPVC windows. This essential child safety device is designed to limit opening of a window to 100 mm. It can be released to facilitate full opening of the window, it automatically re-engages restricted position on closing of the window.
We replace a lot of uPVC window handles. It’s common for cheap window handles (catches) to snap, crack or break over time. They can also jam / get stuck so its no possible to open.
Window hinges (friction stays) seize or break especially when they have not been used for some time. There are many different types of hinges available in a variety of sizes, choice depends on the size / weight of the window, plus the type and style of UPVC windows. Here is a list of the types we deal with:
- Standard universal
- Top hung only
- Side hung only
- Mega egress
- Restricted egress
- Heavy duty
- Easy clean
- Timber framed double glazed
Services we don’t supply
We don’t work on sash windows, we have repaired these in the past but we feel your better to work with a sash window specialist who will carry all the parts that stretch back years.
