Sagging window construction: causes and solutions
The sash geometry is the exact coincidence of the parameters of the glass. If the indicators of width, height and diagonal do not match, this indicates incorrect installation of the structure or factory defect, which over time can lead to problems, up to cracking of the double-glazed windows.
Also, the causes of such a defect may be:
- mastic, which protrudes beyond the boundaries of the glass, contributing to the deformation of the structure;
- shrinkage of the house, which also affects the change in the geometry of the structure;
- excessive load on the frame (for example, drying things on the windows).
To resolve this issue, you should run sash centering.
Stages of restoration of structural integrity
Sash geometry alignment should be performed only by the master. This process is quite laborious and requires special skills and knowledge. Therefore, if you have never done such a job before, it is not recommended that you do it yourself.
Aligning sagging sash begins with the dismantling of glazing beads and fixing the double-glazed window. Next, the pressure of the hardware is weakened and a proppant type plate is searched. The wizard determines how correctly they are installed, because often the cause of the defect is precisely the incorrect installation of these elements.
If, after regulating these components, the defect is not eliminated, the master additionally installs building elements 1-3 mm thick in the upper corner of the structure, located opposite the loop.
After alignment of window sash geometry completed, the window service specialist checks for compliance of the strike plates with the locking pins.
In the event that you find yourself in such a defect, do not delay the repair. Contact a specialist immediately for help. The master, having identified the cause of the problem, will execute restoration of window sash geometry, allowing to prevent further damage to the structure.
