Title: Hot air repair of PVC-U window and door frames

Ref Code: GR31
Authors: C Newman

Abstract1: The use of hot air repair on PVC-U frames is relatively new, but appears to be growing rapidly. It requires a high level of training and skill to produce satisfactory repairs. If carried out well, it seems unlikely that repair will have long-term adverse consequences for the durability of the repaired window or door. This Good Repair Guide describes current practice, potential problems associated with a new technique and how repair work might develop in the future.
