Screen-Shot-2014-04-23-at-2.11.04-AMDo you have hard to open windows and need window repair? Today we are going to talk about windows, and how to accomplish a window repair by replacing the balancers. We get so many calls about this everyday at our Glass Service business located in Bonita Springs, Fl, just north of Naples. Naples might be a bigger city, yet we have people coming up to our store in Bonita Springs after having no luck finding a window repair company in Naples.

Over the last few years our sales for window balancers have quadrupled! They have a life to them, anywhere from 10-15 years. We see it all though, and sometimes the windows are only a few years old!It’s time to replace. Customers are always asking how to put them in…so we do demonstrations daily in our shop here in Bonita Springs. We are fortunate to have a very experienced woman, names Wendy, that IS the expert on all things related to window repair. This woman knows window and door parts better than anyone! She is amazing and our customers are so thankful when she knows exactly what they need, some have been all around trying to find what they need. and if we don’t have it in stock(which is rare), she will hunt it down and special order it. We have so many window and door parts in Screen-Shot-2014-04-23-at-2.10.51-AMstock, I can’t begin to keep them all straight. I love the look on peoples faces when they show her their part, and at a glance she recognizes it, and finds it within seconds. We are the only source in the area that carries all these obscure parts. In fact all the big box home improvement stores, especially Ace Hardware, send their customers our way. I told a customer today with confidence- if we don’t have it, no one will!

Replacing your balancers might be a job you want to leave to the pros. If you are at all handy and want to save on a service call, it is a job that you can attempt to tackle yourself. I made this video to show you how it’s done!
