Fall is an ideal window maintenance season due to its mostly dry and agreeable weather conditions. Proper upkeep can repair the damage your windows have sustained from past seasons as well as prepare them for the snow and rain in the coming months. Renewal by Andersen® of Seattle, one of the leading window contractors in Seattle, WA, shares tips for keeping your windows in top shape this season.
Clean Your Windows According to the Product Manual
Manufacturers often recommend a unique way of maintaining their products. Since your windows are made from different materials, it pays to check their manual for proper cleaning instructions. Make sure to use the right cleaning materials to reduce the risk of damage to your windows.
Seal the Gaps with Insulating Foam
If your windows have gap and leak problems, seal them immediately to prevent energy from escaping. Use appropriate caulking and weather stripping to seal them. This way, you can create a comfortable indoor environment and keep your energy costs low.
Check for Damaged Components
A window’s overall performance ultimately rests on its components. Your window might not function properly when one component becomes damaged. If you notice condensation in the glass, brittleness of the frames, or broken glass panes, your windows may already be due for a replacement.
