Tips and Reminders for Kid-Friendly Windows

Windows are some of the most vital components of a home. They let light in, provide additional ventilation and help maintain the indoor temperature. But apart from being aesthetically pleasing and fully functional, windows should also be safe to use, especially if you have kids at home.

Here are some tips on making your windows safe even for your little ones.

Do: Keep Drapes, Curtains and Other Window Accessories Out of Reach.

Children are curious about their surroundings. They like to touch and explore everything around them so when you toddler-proof your home, make sure to include your windows. Keeping window cords out of your kids’ reach prevents curtains and drapes from being yanked from the curtain rods.

Do: Keep Windows and Nearby Doors Locked.

Kids will try to tinker with anything that can be tinkered with so you can expect that they will also try to open anything that can be opened, such as sliding patio doors and windows.

Don’t: Leave Your kids Unsupervised.

This goes without saying, but is nevertheless worth repeating. Kids can be so creative when it comes to trying to learn about their environment that they can find ways to wander off into places where they shouldn’t be wandering off.

Don’t: Rely Only on Insect Screens to Prevent Falls.

Once children discover that they can move, they will try to exercise their mobility as often as they can and in any way they can. They might climb up on windows and push them open unintentionally. This is why it’s not enough to just have insect screens on your windows. However, you also need to be mindful about exit and escape plans.

"Renewal was fantastic! They kept you in the loop from ordering to installation. They informed you at every step of the process of what was happening. The installers were kind, courteous, and professional. Everything was cleaned up after the installation. It was as if they hadn't been there except to see your beautiful new windows. I highly recommend them."

"3rd time using RBA for window replacement. Again, a very positive experience, the windows are great, the installation was done right, the professionalism was apparent from start to finish. Still have existing windows to be replaced and will definitely use RBA again to do it in the future."

"Renewal by Andersen was a good experience for us in replacement of our windows. From the initial meeting with the sales representative, Leslie, through the waiting period for manufacturing, and then to the installment process, our experience was excellent! Communication is key for me and we were kept informed and updated as our windows were being ordered and manufactured. Calls to update us on the installation process were welcomed and appreciated. They know how much is too much so they don't pester you with unnecessary contact. We love our new windows!!! Did I say that already??😂 We can tell a major difference in reduced Street noise and also the temperature at our windows. Excellent company, highly recommend!!"
