Just a quick update to our customers due to the heavy rain we are currently facing for the next couple of days in Singapore.
Due to covid-19, we are having less man power than usual for our work. The rainy weather does make it worst.
We do try to turn up on time for our appointment usually which is why we always give a time slot of 9-11, 11-1,1-3, 3-5 and 5-7 for all appointments so as to factor in unexpected event such as jams, more time needed for repair or even clients of prior appointment being held up by unexpected delay thus affecting later appointment.
However, with the rain, some of our technician that travel on motor bike are now unavailable to attend to appointment and even those on van can get stuck due to water ponding in some areas. As such we would like to be upfront that there might be a delay for appointment schedule.
We apologise for any hassle caused and we do sincerely want to try and keep to the appointed time slot for our clients and will continue to try to as much as we can.
We are still awaiting government approval following the latest measures announced on 21st april 2020. While we have been approved before by MIT to continue serving our clients whom may have encountered urgent cases, this is current put on hold because we have to register the names of the workers with MIT as of 21st April 2020. Also we are waiting for replies from BCA since we are considered construction and our workers on work permit have to await approval. We have no intention to outsource our work to freelancers as we do not intend to allow worker whom we have lesser control over to attend to our customers.
Some measures we have in place currently:
we have only 2 workers on standby to work and have located them within the same premises with no other personal in contact beside their wifes.
The repairman are only allowed to travel to your home with a company provided van. No public transportation is allowed. Following which they would travel home after the repair work.
Mask are to be on at all times unless strenuous work is required. We advise our customers should they want to observe the repair work being done to stay 1 metre away from our repairman.
They carry a bottle of sanitiser on the van which is to be used after each work.
Communication with clients must be done with mask on.
Temperature taking are done twice a day.
Our repairman are malaysian and have no links to any construction site or dorms.
We wish our customer the best of health and may we overcome this trail together 🙂
Glass door works just like any other doors whereby it has to be secured by a mechanism to a wall. For a sliding glass door, it is usually by clamp which are attached to a roller while for swing glass door the mechanism that is commonly used are called glass door hinges.
As shown in the image, there are springs within a glass door hinges which can rebound and thus hit the glass causing it to shatter.
Beside that such glass door hinges are commonly used for shower door and also the main door of a commercial unit where traffic is high. As such a damaged hinge can be dangerous.
We do replacement of damaged hinges for both commercial and residential unit as well as alignment of glass door (which happens when the hinges are loose causing the glass to sag down).
For such replacement, the main consideration is the hole that has been pre cut in the door. As shown in the image below, you will notice 2 hole right at the edge of the glass door .
As the hole in the glass door cannot be altered, a hinge with correct measurement is needed to ensure that the glass is held securely to prevent any mishap from happening.
For most replacement, the work can be done within an hour to two, mainly depending on the alignment which has to be redone as both hinges are removed from the door.
A minimum of 2 technician is required to do the work for safety reason as we are dealing with glass which has a risk of shattering.
Upon replacement, the warranty period for the labour is 3 months. However, it is highly unlikely that we would be called back for the next couple of years for another glass door hinge replacement work as such hinges would not malfunction that frequently.
For more information on glass door hinges repair or replacement do give us a call at 6280 4615. Beside glass door hinges, we specialise in various door repair services and are available islandwide in Singapore.
Sliding doors as the name implies slides in order for you to open the door. For a door to slide, it is common to use a roller system. There is 2 common sliding door system which can be differentiate base on where the roller is placed. The roller can be placed on the top of the sliding door or what we call a top hung sliding door or it can be at the bottom or what we call a bottom roller system.
Rollers just like car tyres are subjected to wear and tear when used and needs to be changed over time. Whil frequent maintenance of the roller does help, it is inevitable that the bearing would get worn out.
Steps to replacing the Sliding Door roller system:
For both the top hung system and bottom roller system, replacement would usually require the removal of the entire door. After which, a suitable replacement have to been used. Doors unlike most other industries do not have a standard market part. Each door manufacturer will be using their own roller system as such there is a possibility that the roller currently used cannot be found in the market. A minor difference in size can affect the alignment of the entire door thus affecting the smoothness of the sliding door. Just like a bicycle if one is to change the wheels to a completely different size than the original than the riding experience will change.
After replacing the roller, the door will than be fitted back to the track and the final alignment will be done. It is important to do proper alignment to ensure proper closure of the door. Improper alignment will shorten the span of the rollers and may cause damage to your door or even worst cause a person to get stuck behind close door. As such do ensure the sliding door repair technician at your home completes the work by checking both the smoothness as well as the alignment of your door.
Maintenance of Sliding Door Roller
As a home owner, we can reduce the wear and tear of the sliding door by frequently oiling the bearing of the door. You can use greasing agent such as WD 40 which can be purchase of the shelf. However, do not over use the grease as too much would cause the grease to build up and harden thus causing the bearing of the rollers to get jammed.
