    i have just bought a house and have noticed that most of the upvc windows have dropped and although they shut and lock there is a gap at the top, is there a fix for this or do i need new windows???

    If they have dropped, I'm amazed they still close and lock. You should be able to adjust the hinges to raise them up - it's hard to advise without knowing the profiles and mechanism used.

    Are they side hung or top hung ?

    If side hung probably need toe & heeling

    If top hung lift up on hinges

    Picture would be useful


    Good Luck
