Silver Saints is a London-based handyman firm that helps London area residents repair sash window cords and the newer spiral balance units that are used on modern sash windows. Here is a brief overview that describes how a Silver Saints handyman might repair sash window cords or the newer spiral balance units on sash windows.
If a Silver Saints handyman is employed to repair sash window cords, here is the four-step process he typically uses to finish the job quickly:
1) The handyman first removes the rails and the sashes from the window.
This makes it easier for the handyman to open the weight compartment in the unit. This is vital because it makes it easier to find and remove the broken sash cords.
2) Once the broken sash cords are removed the handyman then measures out the correct amount of sash cord to use.
3) Next, the handyman then attaches the new sash cord to the sash and securely ties off the cord to the pulley.
4) Finally, the handyman then replaces the rails and the sashes to complete the job.
On the other hand, replacing a spiral balance unit is a bit trickier because it takes a bit more time and effort to find and locate the needed parts. Have a look at the process a Silver Saints handyman might use to complete this job to see what mean.
1) The handyman first takes off the sash and disconnects the brackets that hold the old spiral balance unit in place.
2) The Silver Saints handyman then measures the right amount of sash cord to use.
This helps him find the right parts to order to complete the job. This is necessary because Silver Saints handymen have to order the proper replacement spiral balance units to do the job properly the first time around.
3) The Silver Saints handyman then returns to the client's home to install the new unit once the new unit is located.
This is done by first removing lower sash and the lower rails from the window. Once this is done, the handyman then removes the old spiral balance unit from the window by removing the unit from the brackets that keep it in place. The handyman might also replace the brackets with newer ones that are more durable.
Once this is done, the handyman then installs the new spiral spring unit by attaching it to the securely to the brackets. The handyman then re-assembles the window unit by replacing the rails and the sash to the window. This process takes 30-60 minutes to complete once the proper parts are located.
