Malta Window Replacement Parts: Vinyl Clad Double Hung Now Available!

Fenster Components is pleased to announce that we now have available the sought-after vinyl clad double hung window profile once produced by Malta. This Malta window has been obsolete for many years, making it impossible to find replacement sashes. We recently received a set of these sashes from a customer, allowing us to replicate the wood frame components.

Since Fenster products are component based, these Malta window replacement parts can be used by the DIYer or professional to rebuild your existing Malta sash frames to like-new condition while reducing cost by reusing the glass, cladding and hardware. Through our engineering process, we discovered these Malta windows to be very DIY friendly. With frames that screw together and a rubber glazing boot, little experience is needed to rebuild these Malta sashes with Fenster replicated parts. Transfer of the cladding need not concern you either — the rigid vinyl cladding simply slips over the face of the wood frame. With the sides of the sash separated, the cladding slides off one end and can be slipped right back on the new frame with no tools or experience needed. By reusing the cladding, you reduce the cost of the sash while matching the weathered look of the original windows, making the replacement undetectable.

Still intimidated? No problem. A window repair professional or residential glass company can perform this assembly with ease. Don’t let a new window salesman tell you it can’t be done!

Visit our website to get pricing on vinyl clad Malta replicas, and nearly 50 other obsolete wood window profiles Fenster Components has available.

    I have a Malta Springwood sliding patio door installed in 1993.

    One or more of the wheels it rolls on are starting to be noisy. Do you have any information on how to replace these wheels, or have the wheels in stock?

    Many thanks,
    Hoyt

      Hoyt, Thank you very much for your comment. Unfortunately, I think you kinda missed the gist of what Fenster does. We’re a woodworking shop that manufactures our own versions of replicated sashes that are obsolete or no longer available from the original manufacturer. We are not Malta nor do we have association with them. We do not have a resource to determine what wheels were used on that door. However, just some friendly advice, my sliding glass door at home squeaks like that too. Some silicone spray usually does the trick.

    We have one window installed in1998 that has rotted out at the bottom of the bottom sash and falling away from the glass . We need a replacement for the lower tilt out sash of the 3046 double hung (desert sand or light tan) vinyl clad Malta window.

      Raymond, We may be able to help you, but with some limitations on available components. This window in particular will require significant assembly. We highly recommend using a professional. We can not process requests through this blog. Please visit our website to understand our product specifications. Thank you.

    Old double hung malta window, the sash cords are broken, can they be replaced.

    • Posted November 24, 2014 at 2:39 pm | Permalink

      Depends on how old? If they have vinyl jambliners, then yes, replacements are available.

    I have 3 Malta vinyl clad wood double hung windows that need new jambliners for each. They are the spring loaded ones and the plastic holders or springs have broken. The jamliners are 3.75 in wide by 61.5 long at the front and 62.5 at the back and are a clay color. Is this something that can be ordered?

    • Posted April 6, 2015 at 4:45 pm | Permalink

      Josh, We have a new jambliner store launching hopefully in the next week or so. Check back to our website in the next couple of weeks to get those ordered. Thanks!

    Are you able to build a new window complete with the glass and grid inserts for a Malta casement window manufactured around 2001? I would provide dimensions and model # of current window as well as pictures. The entire casement window is fine with the exception of the bottom rail has rotted, and subsequently the window has cracked. I am looking to find a replacement window complete with the glass and rails assembled together.

    • Posted June 29, 2015 at 4:15 pm | Permalink

      Dan, Yes. I believe you are talking about the sash? Yes, we can build a complete “sash” replacement for you….with some exceptions. If this is a vinyl clad unit, we are close to stocking component inventory to build these. Our time frame is hopefully in the next 30 days. If this is an aluminum clad unit, we can not build an exact replacement, but our Quiksash product is a viable option for you. This is is our signature clad sash engineered to fit and work in your existing window opening. So, long story short, yes we can help you in some capacity. Send us some pictures and info to sales@fensterusa.com and we’ll take a look.

    I have Malta wood windows installed 2001 with vinyl jambs. The small plastic jamb shoes are broken where they hook into springs on several windows so the windows do not stay up in the open position. I believe the spings are OK. Do you have replacement jamb shoes or kits available?.

    • Posted August 20, 2015 at 9:11 pm | Permalink

      Joe, We get asked this a lot. I think we have tracked down this specific part. My customer service people would have more information on that. If you could send a picture of the specific part to sales@fensterusa.com we’ll see what we can turn up for you.

    Looking for a replacement casement sash please help

    • Posted March 21, 2016 at 1:29 pm | Permalink

      Shawn, I’m sure we can help, but we make about 70 different models of sash. We’ll need a little more information. I recommend visiting our website, http://www.fensterusa.com, to see if we have your model available.

    Ryan,

    I need help with some rotted Malta Windows from a 1998 build. Do you have contact information?

    • Posted July 19, 2016 at 1:33 pm | Permalink

      Bruce, Contact info for Malta? Malta closed up back in 2012. We make an after-market copy assuming we have the model you need. Since you’re on this blog, can I assume you have vinyl clad double hung or casement? We can make either of those, minus a few exceptions. I suggest contacting us via one of the online forms at http://www.fensterusa.com, or send pictures and contact info to sales@fensterusa.com. Thanks Bruce!

    i have Malta vinyl windows in my dining room. the upper portion is a 3 piece fixed unit (does not open). the center unit has a rounded top. this section has become fogged and needs replacing. it was originally installed when house was built in 1999 (i am the original owner.). what is the procedure to follow about replacement and is it still under warrenty?

    • Posted April 21, 2017 at 9:58 pm | Permalink

      Al, Well Malta finally went out of business in 2012 so nothing is still under warranty. If you’re just talking new glass, any local glass company can replace that for you.

  • Posted June 8, 2017 at 2:46 am | Permalink

    I have 22 Malta windows double hung, cherry stain, wood interior, and vynal exterior clad, tilt. several will not stay up and slide down when not locked.

    Thank you Ryan. I could not find that result; it disappeared? and, I could not remember from whom. I will run this by my repairmen and determine if he can handle it/find someone who can.

    We have malta windows we think are original to the house. 1971, are they worth keeping or should we think of replacing at this time?

    • Posted September 22, 2018 at 2:40 pm | Permalink

      Daralynn, Depends on the condition. If the frames are still good or can be refurbished, you stand the benefit from better energy efficiency with a new replacement sash from us. I’m first making the assumption we have a matching model for you, but from there, we can build you a matching sash with modern glass technology. Quite often, a restoration can be less costly and certainly less invasive to the home than a full tear out replacement. My advice would be to assess the condition of the frames to see if they still sound or repairable and go from there.

    I am a little confused as I just got a reply from Ryan Swartz that you no longer do Malts Vinyl clad windows. I have a Malta 7B 3 that needs a new sash. Can you help.

    • Posted September 25, 2018 at 11:54 am | Permalink

      Yes Luis, that’s me. This blog post is from 2014. What goes on the internet, stays on the internet. We’ve since discontinued this model. We’ve had too many problems trying to match profiles. malta changed the design too many times to correctly identify what a customer has.
