Whether you’re experiencing rough operation, hard to slide, glass issues, or unsightly darkening wood from moisture/condensation or wood rot.

I offer repair or replacement for Patio Door components, hardware, weather stripping, glass, adjustment, lubing tracks & rollers and rescreening. Replacement where components are available for the brand that you have. For some patio doors the unsightly wood components may need to be replaced or the whole door sash may have to be replaced.

I offer a pre-finishing option for wood parts prior to install making it convenient for you with less concern on how to get the project completed. If you're selling or plan to sell I offer a service including operational adjustments, lubrication of moving components and over all inspection resulting in less concern when it comes to showing or inspection for a buyer.

If you have interior or exterior doors that don’t open and close well, don’t seal tight, won’t latch, or just hits the frame when closing or has unsightly darkening wood or wood rot.

I offer replacements for broken, seal failed and collapsed glass.

Seal Failed: this is when you have water runs, foggy or hazy looking inside and between the panes of glass.

Collapsed Glass: this is when you experience a circle or oval of moisture or condensation in the middle of the glass, on the inside of the house during winter and outside during summer when air conditioning is running.

Typically if you are purchasing glass a 20 year seal fail warranty is offered and this usually covers the glass not the installation. If the replacement involves a whole window sash or a door panel with wood I offer a pre-finishing option making it easier for you to get the job completed without the hassle of finding/involving other contractors.

I offer as close as possible color stain match and sealant option, paint-enameling etc., typically a professional blended stain/paint and have you sign off on the color with the stipulation, some of the wood products has the potential to have lighter and darker spots due to the nature of the wood and wood grain.

With the sealant option I offer a process of sealant to the lower areas of the window sash or component after staining and before varnishing or enameling that is most subject to moisture getting into those areas. This is a helpful preventive measure, although due the various differences how homes process humidity and other conditions of living practices I cannot offer a warranty beyond the original manufactures warranty of the products or components being replaced. This process helps to seal the wood grain and end grain of components.

This is a topic we can spend much time discussing. In my opinion...

Window condensation is a symptom of a homes level of humidity that typically shows up at the bottom of the glass on a window. As higher humidity during the winter months is a feel-good condition, too much inside humidity during extreme cold, outside temps causes the condensation of moisture showing up on the windows having an effect on the finish and unsightly darkening of wood components no matter the brand.

I have available literature from various manufactures and 3rd party explaining this, to help you understand and help manage it. There are various graphs available explaining the recommended level of inside humidity in correlation to the outside temps during winter to help manage the damaging effects of window condensation. In my opinion as the outside temp lowers so should the inside humidity follow it, other conditions and living practices i.e. screens, blinds, shades window coverings, pets, plants and cooking all contribute to excessive window condensation. With installing new sashes or new window components with new weather stripping can actually increase an obvious condition of high humidity condensation and the windows typically take the blame, but it’s not the windows fault as the literature explains this.
