Track Repair

A track repair is a manual file & sand of the track.  A track repair is utilised where damage has occurred due to roller breakdown. For extensively damaged tracks, a track repair can take a significant amount of time & effort to perfect. A track replacement will be undertaken where this can’t adequately achieve the desired result. Track damage can compromise new rollers. This may result in a replacement 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. This will save you money on your power bills. We carry weather pile seals in our van so replacement is hassle-free.

When carrying out bifold doors and windows repairs, you need to have a thorough understanding of how they operate under the configuration in which they were installed. 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 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 repair is complete, we test the structural integrity of the panels and frames. We also test 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.

Sydney’s expert bifold door installers and repairers

Bifolds are unique and more complex than traditional doors and windows. Their installation must therefore be completed to the highest of standards by expert bifold 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 bifold door installers recommended by the door fabricator. They are certified professionals and trusted to install 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 in Sydney as their preferred bifold door installers. Also for bifold door and window repairs. As a trusted repair provider, we are referred by some of the top window & door manufacturers and suppliers. Some include Alspec bifold doors, AWS bifold doors, Centor bifold doors, Brio bifold doors, Hafele bifold doors, Hawa bifold doors, Henderson bifold doors, and Stegbar door repairs. Amongst others, as 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 until the door becomes completely stuck. This then creates 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. We also employ expert bifold 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, and 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. We check if they are catching, getting stuck, or requiring force to operate.

Wash your bifold doors or windows down regularly including the hardware, dry the hardware with a soft cloth, and then apply 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 to set and forget. We will contact you 2 weeks before your routine maintenance is due. You just need 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 luxury homes 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. Sydney has stunning views that should be celebrated in any home. This isn’t the only reason bifolds are great.

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. This way you can utilise your space a lot more effectively. Unlike sliding doors, bifold can be configured in multiple ways. This allows your doors to be adapted to suit each occasion. New bifolds are very energy efficient. 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 designs 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 occur 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, the chances are you will also have sustained damage to the tracks. This is something that needs repairing. To proceed, the track will be filed down and sanded off manually. This can be a laborious job if there is damage present. 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. It really is a quick job that we complete for many of our customers and a great way to keep energy bills down.
  • 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!
