Preventative window maintenance and servicing in Oxfordshire
Windows are usually something we all take for granted until something goes wrong, so ensuring their safety and security with preventative window maintenance and servicing should be paramount to protect your home or business.
Having your windows checked on a regular basis gives you the confidence that you are keeping your premises safe and secure, as well as looking good and functioning properly. Window maintenance and servicing also extends a window’s working life and helps to avoid unnecessary call out fees if anything does go wrong.
Our expert team of engineers will check each of your windows looking for signs of wear in the hinges, sash balances, locks and pivots, any alignment issues, closing speeds and much more.
Following this window maintenance and service we will provide you with our detailed recommendations along with our costs for any work that’s needed.
Our preventative window maintenance and servicing checks include:
- A site visit and meeting with your designated contact before work commences
- Safety compliance
- Window alignment and adjustment
- Window locks and adjustment
- Window handles, cylinders and adjustment
- Lubricating operating equipment and adjustment
- Window brush seals and adjustment
- Window glass checks for compliance and damage
- Making sure you are satisfied with the level/speed of operation of your windows

The above scope of works encompasses aluminium, steel, glass, wooden, composite and PVCu windows.

We also stock many brands of window hardware including Dorma, Saracen, Siegenia, Union, Roto, Mila, Yale, GU, Clearline remote gear, and many more, with our vehicles carrying a wide range of spare parts including:
- Spiral sash balances

After a health and safety incident at a local government office where a sliding window came down on a employee’s hand, the maintenance team there decided
to have their windows maintained by Windrush Door and Window Services. We now service their windows on a regular basis to protect employees from future
injury. Preventative maintenance is a must to create a safe environment for people to work in.

This June Windrush installed 39 Pvcu windows to our student accommodation block at Rewley Abbey Court. The work required them to install the windows while residents were in occupation, some with young children. Windrush carried out a full risk and method statement and appraisal to carry out the works in a safe manner with multi-occupation to consider. Full scaffolding and access booms were used with everything being alarmed and fenced off with appropriate signage in place. The Windrush team involved had all the necessary accreditation holding CSCS cards, asbestos awareness trained, CRB checked etc. The windows were as per our requested specification with Windrush being the most competitive out of the competition. The College are very pleased with all aspects of the work carried out and will be using Windrush on our future projects.

Windrush have installed new pvcu patio doors in the residents homes on site. The window installers being friendly and polite and having a nice demeanour and getting on well with the residents. The work was carried out in a professional manor with their work being clean and tidy all with an insurance baked guarantee. I would have no hesitation in recommending them to others.

I would just like to say that I was very impressed by the two young men who came to do the windows yesterday, they were very efficient, had impeccable manners and they cleared up after themselves which was a joy.
Windrush serviced two Velux windows and re-glazed with new sealed units, re-glazed a bedroom window with three sealed units, and re-glazed a conservatory upgrading sealed units to “Low E Argon” gas and thermal bar

During the School holidays the Windrush team carried out window adaption works for the School. Windrush installed remote window winding equipment to our high level windows that have been a health and safety issue with pupils and staff standing on chairs to open. I can recommend Windrush for their professional approach, competitive pricing and ability to accommodate our requirements during a busy time with many other trades on site. They were willing to change their work schedule to accommodate changing circumstances on site.
