Planned window & door Maintenance Package*
to achieve high levels of tenantsatisfaction’
MSi’s 12 point check to PVC-u Windows and Doors
Included in MSi’s planned window & door maintenance package:
Our trained engineers will come and undertake a full condition survey and 12 point operation and safety check of all your external windows and doors and deliver a fully costed report back to you.
When windows and doors have been installed for a long period of time it is likely that they will no longer have their original manufacturers integrity. They may not operate as intended, and on some occasions may be deemed un-safe.
Faulty seals can lead to draughts, water ingress and tenant discomfort – misalignment of glass, locks, handles, hinges & restrictors can create operating issues and are often put under due pressure by tenants trying to make them work as they used to. Over a period of time this makes their operational performance worse and eventually they will not work at all. This can also lead to poor thermal performance resulting in higher heating costs.
