Windows are important home investments. When planning to replace yours, make sure you also think of ways to prevent damage on your new windows. This way, you can make the most of your investments and enjoy their benefits for many years.
At Renewal by Andersen® of Greater Philadelphia, we recognize the efforts many customers put into finding the right products for their homes. To help you care for them, we’ve listed three surefire ways to prevent damage:
- Have experts inspect your windows.
If you suspect problems with your windows, it’s best to have an expert Philadelphia window company inspect them. Although some problems may seem easy to fix, you can never be too sure about their real cause. Having trained eyes check your windows gives you the peace of mind that you won’t be causing more damage to your windows with DIY inspections and repairs.
- Perform regular maintenance.
One of the best ways to avoid window damage is to perform regular maintenance. Wipe loose dirt from tracks and sills with a soft dry cloth to keep your windows operating smoothly. You may use mild soapy water when cleaning the glass, grilles, frames, and sashes.
- Buy durable replacement windows.
When it’s time to change your windows, choose products made from durable and weather-resistant materials.
Renewal by Andersen uses Fibrex® for window frames and doors. It is an innovative composite material that combines the strength and durability of wood with the maintenance ease of vinyl. Unlike vinyl, however, Fibrex has a low expansion and contraction rate. It won’t bow and break the glass seal during extreme temperature changes. Further, it is resistant to rot and decay, which can keep your windows damage-free far longer than other materials available on the market.
There are many ways to care for your windows and prevent damage—and doing nothing isn’t one of them. Even if you have durable windows, you should still have professionals perform regular maintenance and inspection so you can easily spot any issues that may arise.
