How To Fix a Broken Window Lock

We've all been the victim of a broken window lock.  Below are just a few ways to fix a broken window lock the next time the situation arises.

  1. Unable to lock the window.
    Unlock the window completely. Push the upper sash upward, as far as it will move and pull the lower sash to the bottom of the window. Once both sashes are in their proper positions you will be able to engage the lock.
  2. The top sash has dropped from its pocket
    Push the upper sash all the way to the top while at the same time pushing the lower sash down. NOTE: You may need an additional person to aid you. This should align and allow you to engage the window lock.
  3. The sashes are not aligned correctly in the channel
    Tilt each sash in as if you are cleaning the windows. Push both sashes firmly back into the window channel. This should align the sash and allow the window to lock properly.
  4. Balance shoe is disengaged
    If the balance shoe becomes disengaged from the sash, the window will not lock because it is misaligned. To correct this situation, please refer to the section on"Windows Dropping Down".

If the instructions listed above do not correct the problem, please call Window World  for further assistance.

Maintenance Tips for Keeping Your New Replacement Windows looking Great

If you’re like most people, your replacement windows have made an extremely positive impact on your home in many ways.  They have enhanced the appearance of your exterior, have added to your home’s energy efficiency, and have—literally—helped brighten your life. 

So why not keep them looking great?  Here are some maintenance tips for your replacement windows.



Keeping your windows clean will go a long way toward improving the view and helping let the light in.  By using a window-specific cleaning solution and a soft, clean rag once a week, you will keep the glass looking great.


From time to time, your window’s frame may require a new coating of paint if you notice any chipping or fading.  You may want to speak with your window installer if your windows are still under warranty.


Always be sure to ask your window installer about e-coatings, because they enhance your replacement windows’ ability to insulate and help to reduce your energy bills.

New replacement windows often have a coating in between the layers of glass, but if the coating is on the outside, then ask if it requires maintenance or replacement to retain its insulation qualities.


Occasionally you’ll want to check on the weather-stripping of your replacement windows, because the rubber seals tend to loosen over time and create leaks and insulation problems. This is why it’s important to use a quality window installer for your window replacements.

At Window World of Central Florida, we offer the best replacement windows available to keep your home looking spectacular.  Also, be sure to ask us about our energy-efficient models and how you can start lowering your energy bills.  Just give us a call or visit our website today.

Window World - Installation

Installation of a vinyl window is not a task for a beginner or amateur do-it-yourselfer. Windows need to be installed plumb, level and square. They need to "float" in the actual rough opening. Concentrated loads can distort window frames and cause a poor fit that allows air and/or water infiltration. To achieve the best fit and finish, your windows should be installed by factory trained employees of the window company. The average homeowner doesn't have the tools or experience to achieve a first class installation.

For A Perfect Finish

New windows require a certain level of skill to insure that the fit, operation and finish are perfect. Vinyl replacement windows present extra challenges. Removing an existing window can be a huge task if you don't have the right tools. Existing (and even new houses!) houses can have out of square window openings. The restoration of interior plaster and trim surfaces requires significant coordination and special tools. Exterior caulking, interior insulation installation, etc. all must be accomplished perfectly or you will have a mess - and a drafty window - on your hands.

5 Popular Window Styles that Will Make Your Home Look Great from Both Sides of the Glass

If you are in the market for window replacement, then you need to learn about popular window styles before making a decision for your home. Any one of these five styles will look great and will be the perfect window for Orlando sunshine.


  1. Casement Windows: These side-hinged windows can open inward, although outward opening is more common. They swing vertically, like a door, and are operated with a crank. Outward opening casement windows offer superior ventilation and are the most popular window replacements for over the kitchen sink. They open up 90 degrees and still provide security when closed. 
  2. Double Hung: A double hung window is the most common and perfect for any home. It has two sashes that move up and down, allowing only one window to be open at one time. Window installers easily install these windows throughout the Orlando area and in homes throughout the United States.
  3. Elliptical/Arched Windows: Arched windows are often placed above double hung windows or doorways in many new homes. They are half of an ellipse shape and are usually wider than half of their height. Arched windows are excellent for providing additional light and household design.  
  4. Sliding Windows: This inexpensive window is very common. It usually consists of two sashes, one fixed and the other that slides on top and bottom tracks. It is used very easily and rarely requires maintenance or a window replacement.
  5. Palladian Windows: A large window with a group of three windows and an arch over the center is a Palladian window. The center section is larger than the two side windows and is arched. This design originated in Renaissance architecture and has recently become popular to provide a home with a visual centerpiece.
