Essential Pre-Autumn Window Maintenance Tasks

With the cooler days of fall just around the corner, it’s time to get your doors and windows ready to face the changing season. Renewal by Andersen® replacement windows are known for their low-maintenance features. Still, it’s best to keep your windows in good condition, both for aesthetic and practical reasons.

Essential Pre Autumn Window Maintenance Tasks

 

We recommend taking the following steps to care for your replacement windows. Note, however, that while these steps can be done in preparation for the colder months ahead, they are not a substitute for proper repairs and inspection done by a professional.

Interior and Exterior Cleaning

 

The dry summer air can whip up dust particles that settle on the exterior sides of both the glass and frames of your replacement windows. Before the season turns, take the time to give your windows a thorough washing. Use a non-abrasive microfiber cloth and a mild liquid detergent to avoid causing streak marks across the glass and keep it looking clean and clear. You also want to use a different set of washcloths for either side of the windows to avoid tracking dirt and dust from one to the other.

Storm Windows

 

Fall season is notorious for inclement weather so it may be beneficial to keep your windows protected with a storm shield. Ask your local window contractor about storm windows and if they are suitable for your home.

Seasonal and Preventive Maintenance

 

Call your trusted windows company and schedule a maintenance appointment during the last couple of weeks of summer. As heating season approaches, all the seals and weatherstripping in your windows must be checked to ensure that there are no potential leaks. Your home can lose up to 25% of heat from broken seals on windows alone. Avoid this problem by making sure the weatherstripping on your windows are in good shape all year long.

"This was one of the best experiences I've ever had with a company. I ordered the windows in November and was told they wouldn't be here until July. That kind of delay the new norm so I wasn't a bit upset with the timeline. I was given an early present when they called to say the windows would be in at the beginning of May. We agreed on the week of May 16th to do the installation, there were 30 windows and a sliding door to install. They arrived promptly on their scheduled install date, and got straight to work. By the end of day one, they had all the upstairs windows complete and their work was incredible. Day two came with more of the same, the crew showed up promptly, got straight to work, and when they left they had every window downstairs installed. The third day they again arrived on-time, and got to work installing the door. The door and windows are perfectly installed. The two lads that did the installation did a phenomenal job, and were friendly to boot. I would give them more business if I had any :) The service I received from the company was great. They kept me abreast of anything that was going on with my order. I appreciate my concierge, Christina, she was good at communicating timelines and getting everything scheduled."

"The two installers were great! They were polite and hard working and they cleaned up all the outside and inside. It was like they were never here. As for the windows, I love them, not only looks great, they are efficient. Now every window in my home has Renewal by Anderson."

"We had the pleasure recently of having Andersen replace all of our windows. From the very first interaction with the office personnel through the completion of the project, they have been nothing but professional. From Brian our sales rep to Christina the appointment scheduler, they were a pleasure to interact with. Installers Keith, John, and Evan were fantastic to work with. They went above and beyond to repair an area which was slightly damaged during the removal of a window...caulked and painted it. They took extra precaution to ensure the floors were covered while working inside and cleaned up each day inside and out. We love the look of our new windows and can't wait to enjoy the savings in utilities they'll provide. Thanks so much Renewal by Andersen!!"
