uPVC sash not closing properly
« on: 10 September 2012 06:30 pm »

I've recently moved into a house with one sash window that doesn't seal properly because the right hand bolt is not engaging with the plate on the frame. The top of the window seems to be fine, but it's as if the whole thing needs to be moved over at the bottom.  I've tried dropping the left hinge & raising the right but this doesn't move the bolt close enough to engage (I'm looking at a gap of 1-2mm between frame & plate on the left & about 10mm on the right).  I've included a pic to give you an idea of what I'm dealing with but any advice would be greatly appreciated.
