Your windows and doors are an important element of your home’s security, energy efficiency, and appeal. Performing proper maintenance will make your windows perform better, last longer, and look more appealing. EcoView Windows & Doors discusses the importance of keeping your window in top condition, along with advice on how to maintain them.
Why Maintenance Is Important
Part of your windows and doors’ function is protecting you from harsh weather conditions. These are constantly exposed to the changing climate and the outside world, so expect some wear and tear. Nevertheless, just because these do a great job protecting your home doesn’t mean that these are invincible.
Those small cracks and damage will accumulate, which can reduce the service life of your casement windows and patio doors. To prevent this from happening, these need regular maintenance. This goes double if you have old wooden windows or doors. These are more susceptible to cracks; rot and mildew are also a constant threat. Wooden windows and doors need a lot of care and attention to keep them performing well.
Advice on Maintaining Your Doors and Windows
Proper maintenance of your windows and doors start with cleaning. Afterwards, check if there are any cracks or gaps. Studies show that openings and cracks around your windows and doors can account for up to 10% of your heating bills. Caulk and seal any gaps you find. Make sure to check your weatherstripping as well; replace them with new ones if necessary.
