Track Repair

A track repair is a manual file & sand of the track.  A track repair is utilised where track damage has occurred due to roller breakdown. For extensively damaged tracks, a track repair can take a significant amount of time & effort to perfect. Where this can’t adequately achieve the desired result, a track replacement would be undertaken. Track damage can compromise and damage new rollers meaning they may need to be replaced before the warranty period is reached.

Weather Pile Replacement

Bifold doors & windows can rattle in the wind and become draughty when sun exposure and environmental pollution cause deterioration of the weather pile seals. Replacing the weather pile seals can prevent draughts, dust & leaks and improve the energy efficiency of your home, saving you money on your power bills. We carry weather pile seals in our van so replacement is hassle-free.

Re-glazing Seals

We can replace glazing seals without the glass being removed. If your glazing seals need replacing, give us a call today.

When you have your bifold doors or windows repaired by the experts from Exitoso & Co, you can have total peace of mind that the job will be done safely, thoroughly, to the highest of professional standards, and they will also clean up after they’re finished.

When carrying out bifold doors and windows repairs, you need to have a thorough understanding of how they operate under the configuration that they were installed in. Typical problems affecting bifold doors and windows are the header dropping over time, the rollers breaking down, hinges needing replacement, and handles breaking, all of which can pose a security risk. To repair these problems, often all the panels need to be removed and the header needs to be propped up and lifted. These doors and windows, more than others, need regular TLC and can start to show wear & tear around the 8-15 year mark, depending on whether they are in a residential or commercial space. Bifold door and window repairs can be complex and require more time and technicians. After your doors or windows are repaired, we test the structural integrity of the panels and frames and the operation of the door or window before signing the job off as complete. Video footage of the doors or windows operating under these test conditions is recorded for your peace of mind.

We’re experts in bifold door and window repairs in Sydney

Bifolds are unique and more complex than traditional doors and windows. Their installation must therefore be completed to the highest of standards by expert bi fold door installers. The operation of your doors and windows will be very much dependent on the grade of the installation.  Where possible, try to use bi fold door installers recommended by the door fabricator. They are trained and certified to install these specific bifolds. This way you always have an avenue to pursue if things go wrong. Fabricators often have a service department that will complete repairs whilst they are under warranty and will recommend other repairers once the warranty expires. Exitoso & Co are highly recommended by many bifold door fabricators for bifold door and window repairs in Sydney. We are a trusted repair provider referred by some of the top window & door manufacturers and suppliers, including Alspec Bifold Doors, AWS Bifold Doors, Centor Bifold Doors, Brio Bifold Doors, Hafele bifold doors, Hawa Bifold Doors, Henderson Bifold Doors, Airlite, and Stegbar door repairs among others, because they know the quality of our work and our repair expertise is second to none.

Usually, the first sign that bifolds are not operating correctly is scraping on the track or ground. This is usually due to them dropping out of alignment. Another indicator is when the handle breaks, and as the handle is part of the overall mechanism, the door can no longer be operated.  Often people mistake a broken handle as being just that, ignoring the fact that the doors or windows don’t slide well. Commonly these problems are ignored for months until the door becomes completely stcuck, becoming a security issue.  Never let your bifolds get to this stage.  The cost of repairing bifold doors or windows will significantly increase due to the complexity of the repairs and the hardware replacement costs. Call Exitoso & Co for your Sydney bifold door and windows repairs sooner rather than later. We also employ expert bi fold door installers and provide repair services to other types of doors and windows.

Caring for your bifold doors and windows

As the saying goes, an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure, and taking care of your bifold doors and windows will reduce the chance that you’ll need to have them repaired. Fortunately, it is quite simple to care for your bifold doors and windows, so it does not require a lot of effort or expense.

Complete an audit of your doors or windows on a regular basis, check the top, mid & end hinges. This is where a lot of problems start. Make sure the screws are nice and tight, and that the hinge plate is perfectly flush. Look for any sign that the hinge plate has moved out of position.  Check the locks and handles, guides, seals, weather strips, flush bolts, and the glass & frame integrity. Operate all the panels and check if they are catching, getting stuck, or require force to operate.

Wash your bifold doors or windows down regularly including the hardware, dry the hardware with a soft cloth and then apply a good quality lubricant to moving parts to keep them free from debris and smooth to operate. Vacuum the tracks regularly. If you only use 1 or 2 panels of your doors or windows on a regular basis, make an effort to open all of the panels every 4 weeks.

Taking time to do simple maintenance regularly will save you money in the long run. Exitoso & Co can schedule routine maintenance so it’s set-and-forget. We will simply contact you 2 weeks before your routine maintenance is due, you just have to wash the doors down the day before and we will take care of the rest!

The benefits of Bifold doors and windows

When you see a luxury home in a magazine, or an aspirational Instagram post of a pimped-out pad, they often have something in common. An incredible view through some beautiful bifold doors. It’s no wonder that bifolds are becoming more and more popular in homes across the country. We’ve got some stunning views here in Sydney that should be celebrated in any home, but bifolds are great for so many other reasons.

Traditional glass doors, for example, French doors, take up more space, and sliding doors cannot achieve the same wide-open access. Bifold doors use a concertina mechanism to only use the minimum amount of space in your room, so you can utilise your space a lot more effectively. Unlike sliding doors, bifold can be configured in multiple ways, so you can adapt your doors to the needs of the occasion. New bifolds are very energy efficient and, because you are able to open only the doors you need, let out less heat than other doors. They can even be more secure than other doors, as they have multiple locking mechanisms. The only issue with these glass beauties is what happens when they need repairs.

My bifold door or window won’t close, what’s wrong?

Their complex mechanisms and multiple panel design require expert bifold door installation and maintenance services. We hate to say it, but premature problems are usually due to inferior bifold door installation or repair. Otherwise, wear-and-tear of bifold doors and windows commonly occurs around the 8-15 year mark and common issues can include:

  • Roller breakdown. If the rollers in your bifold door or window have broken down then chances are you will also have sustained damage to the tracks, which will need to be repaired. To do this the track should be manually filed down and sanded off. If the damage is pronounced, this can be a laborious job. It’s worthwhile making a proper assessment of the damage before starting. We can complete a track repair with a much higher success rate than any DIY job, so we recommend not attempting this repair yourself. We will always tell you upfront if we think there is too much damage to proceed.
  • Weather Pile Replacement. If you can hear the wind rattling or feel a cool draught through the seals in your bifold doors or windows, then it’s probably time to replace the weather pile seals. Damaged by exposure to sunlight and pollution, old seals need replacing sooner rather than later. New seals will keep out unwanted draughts and dust whilst keeping in your heating or cooling. Keeping energy bills down is a great bonus to getting your seals done, and it’s a quick job that we complete for many of our customers.
  • Re-glazing seals. Have you ever seen the trick where the magician whips the tablecloth out without disturbing the cutlery? Well, we can do the same thing when we replace glazing seals. We can perform this essential repair without removing the glass, magic!
