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.

"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!!"
