Window repairMaking home window repairs doesn't have to be a "pane"

Take a moment and think about the many jobs a window in your house does: it let's light inside, it gives you a view to the outside world, it keeps insects and other intruders out, and it's an easy opening for fresh air to come into your home. Whew...and we're just getting started.

Honestly, you and I probably don't even think about these functions every day...until there's a problem of course: cracked glass or becoming stuck are by far the most common window repairs handymen face.

Lose the glass or the ability to open and close a window, it's pretty much a show-stopper (like a car without wheels!).

Of course there are many other ailments a window can have not including the glass or beging stuck shut. I once looked at a small condo for sale as a potential fixer-upper investment property, and our fix-it list had just about every kind of window repair you could think of on it.

The previous tenants had been foreclosed on and didn't exactly leave the place happily. Either that, or they simply had a severe vendetta against windows and glass!

The front window had been pried open and the window frame needed straightening out. A second window nearby had been cracked and previously repaired with duct tape.

The bathroom window had plywood instead of glass, only to be outdone by the kitchen window, which was just missing altogether! The bedroom windows were immovable, having been painted shut by an overzealous paint job around the window frame.

Needless to say there wasn't a window screen in sight. And the only window that was intact and still moved, was stained with a hard water film, having been the victim of repeated sprinkler overspray.

Whoever bought that condo would have their fill of window repair to make it livable again.

As a civilized homeowner, your home is bound to better off than that condo. But that doesn't mean you're immune to problems that require you to repair a window or two.

Window repair and replacement projects alike have their own challenges. Repairs deal with parts and glass maintenance that help the window work correctly, while installing new windows requires sizing and proper insertion f window repook good and enoup -->
