When old window hardware is sitting in your garage for years, sometimes even decades, making it difficult to remember the condition you left them there in, to begin with. Every piece of window hardware serves a vital role in the functioning of your window, so when one of them is defective or not working correctly, it can leave you with yet another problem.

Rust & Aging
Over time, exposure to water from rain or precipitation and the oxygen from the air causes metals to deteriorate and rust. Aging window parts offer significantly less reliability and functionality than hardware that's in good condition. When you reuse old casement window parts, you risk damaging other parts that were otherwise in working order, reducing the lifespan of your window.
