Small Engine Repair & Sharpening
We do small engine repair on a variety of machines that include, push and rider mowers, tractors, snow blowers, weed eaters and leaf blowers. The basic tune-up includes cleaning the filter, replacing the plug, changing the oil, cleaning and adjusting the carb, sharpening and balancing the blade and lubricating as needed, draining old fuel and flushing the fuel tank. Every machine should have a tune-up at the be- ginning of the season to keep it running well through- out the season. Spark plugs can become fouled which will cause your engine to not run well.
We have a qualified technician that is honest and takes pride in his small engine repairs that he does. There is only one technician that does all the small engine repairs. We have a small engine repair shop at our Delmar and Waterford locations. You can bring you machine to any Phillips Hardware and we will get it over to our small engine shops and return it to the original location for your pick-up. We also have local pick-up and delivery of your small engine repairs, if you aren’t able to get it to us, call your local store for details.
When you are thinking about your small engine repairs, make sure to get your machines in before the season is in full swing. We normally have a good turn around time but once we get into the season it gets busier. As an aspect of our small engine repair shop we also sharpen blades, shears, chainsaw chains, axes, scissors and knives. Phillips Hardware tries to be a full service store that can accommodate anything you may need to keep your home running smoothly.
Window and Screen Repair
Do you have a broken screen or window, we can repair them! Screens & windows receive a lot of use while protecting your home from heat, cold and bugs, so from time to time the screen or glass might break, crack or rip. A broken windowpane or ripped screen not only allows the weather and pests into your home, it is also a security hazard. Our glass technician has been repairing screen and glass windows and doors for over 30 years. You can drop off your screen or window at any Phillips Hardware and we will deliver it to our Colonie location where our technician does the repairs.
You have a choice of what type of screen you want to use for the repair, fiberglass grey or charcoal, aluminum bright or charcoal and pet screen in grey or charcoal. If you don’t tell us which screen type you want for your repair we will use what was originally in the screen. Pet screen is 7 times stronger than traditional aluminum and fiberglass screen. It is vinyl coated polyester that is resistant to tears and damage. You can request a price quote before the screen or window is repaired, just tell the employee who is writing up the ticket. We can not repair the screen by “sewing” it, we must replace the screen.
Our qualified technician can duplicate most styles of windows or screens based on measurements but it is normally better if you can bring in a sample of the screen or window you want to recreate. Any Phil- lips Hardware locations will cut glass or optic acrylic sheet (plexi) to a specific size, which is great to re- place the glass in a picture frame or any other house- hold item that needs to be fixed.
