Our late 70's Wellington house has a number of single glazed aluminium windows  that need re-alignment because of the gaps between the windows and the frame. A couple window latches need replacing as they are on the way out and one set of hinges that need to be replaced as well. In short, a bit of overdue maintenance. Can anyone recommend a company in Wellington to do this for us?

I considered retro fitting double glazing but given that we are possibly moving in the next year or so, that doesn't seem worth the expense as I don't think we would recoup that investment when we sell the house.

Thanks for your help!

I used "Complete Aluminium Maintenance" a couple of years ago to fix damage to my ranch slider (broken wheels after the "big shake" we had).

They did a quick and efficient repair; would use them again if I needed to.

EDIT: And I see @dolsen beat me to the recommendation...
