As well as new installations, McLeods offers a repair and maintenance service, for both windows and doors.

Mick, our Senior Service Engineer, known within the business as Maintenance Mick has over 35 years of experience in repairing and maintaining windows and doors.

Here are Mick’s top tips for keeping your Windows in tip-top condition:

  1. Debris and dust can get caught easily, making your windows harder to operate. Clean them out with a soft brush for a tighter seal and enhanced performance
  2. For maximum shine and to avoid scratching your glass, use a microfibre cloth with a spray of glass cleaner
  3. Windows that are well-oiled function smoothly – apply WD-40 regularly to the hinges and locking mechanism of your windows to avoid rust and to ensure they are locking correctly
  4. If there is an issue with locking or closing your window, please let us know immediately so we can give you the best advice and stop the issue escalating

If you’re having any issues with your windows or doors, please send your full name, address, contact number and a brief description of your maintenance/repair issue to
