Thought I'd post here before to see what you reckon before I decide what to do!
So the top hinge of the left hand side window is bent to buggary, window won't close.
I pictured the right hand side one, as I've managed to jam the left hand one half shut..
I can buy a hinge from screwfix but being a simpleton I have no idea really except measure the length of the part that attaches to the frame and or window and see if it fits.
Being on my own, any advice on how I would hold the window up or support it with the top hinge off?
The real question to weigh up is if I can be arsed with the probable headache I'll give myself by diy vs how much is it likely to cost if I just called a bloke in?
Secondly here is the full window. Tbh the whole thing is flimsy and drafty, each side window never closes with a nice seal so there are consant drafts.
Tried the sticky seal strips you can buy for this purpose but none of them are actually thick enough to fill the gap that must be present between window and frame.
Its definitely 20 years old, as thats how long I've been here. Maybe all the hinges are just bent slightly or things have just become warped or twisted or whatever.
What do you think a whole new like for like window + frame replacement is likely to cost?
Without dimensions I guess its harder to say..
The only easy day, was yesterday...
