Window Friction Stay Hinges

Repair and Replace Friction Stay Hinges

Window friction stay hinges are very popular for breaking as they tend to get a lot of use in the home.

The friction stay hinge is found on the side of an opening window and is used to open and close the window into its position. This constant use causes them to eventually wear or break.

A very obvious sign that your window friction stay hinge is broken is that the window will not return properly on one side. This being the side opposite to the window handle. Or it may be that you simply have a draught coming through your window that was not there before suggesting that the hinges are worn.

The good news is that most hinges are easy to replace and we always carry an assortment of hinges on us. Therefore we should be able to carry out the repairs on our first visit if required.
