Aluminium window frame/guide repair

Postby offshoreoildude » Sun, 18 Nov 2012 3:54 pm

Does anyone know of someone who repairs window frames - specifically can replace the rollers and other parts that help the window slide? I can't find a brand name on the frames unfortunately.

When you find one, let us know. I could use someone with that technology as well for replacing the roller in a couple hall windows as well as a heavy glass sliding door.

Actually, those can be bought in any local hardware store. In fact I have a bag with about 8 of them hanging in my store room for the sliding bathroom door in the Kitchen toilet. (The water plays hell on the bearings after a while (even embedding them in heavy duty Dow Corning 111 silicone grease. But that one I can handle as I only have to life out the door from the rail as there isn't a high sill like my big glass door and windows. I cannot figure out how to get the damn things OUT of the casement in order to replace them! Short of removing the casement as well, that is. They don't lift high enough in the upper channel to clear the lower channel.

Ok - Lura can do it.


Lura Contractor

Broken windows and door replacements.

Tel: 6445 3555

He knows how to get the windows out and where to source the OEM rollers. He did my horiz sliding windows but can't do my vertical sliding casements (apparently the idiot architect has made it virtually impossible to remove them - the building was basically built around the windows once they were in place!).

Thanks OSOD. I managed to do a little surgery on my sliding Hall windows by drilling a small 9mm hole in the side of the window frames about where I figured I would have a shot of hitting the rollers with an oiler. I got lucky and now they are as quiet as can be. Haven't done the bedroom windows yet, but I reckon this will work. However, I will probably have to use them for the big sliding glass doors into my study though as I think the rollers are disintegrating as they don't roll smoothly, noise or not.
