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.

 

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.

"Love the windows and patio door. We want to finish the whole house when we can financially. We give Anderson and employees, especially the sales rep Mike that came to our house, the highest rating. Mike was knowledgeable and courteous. Also not high pressure."

"Our installation team was top notch. While they said they were sending a "team"to install 21 windows it was only two people. But I see why, the process was seamless and everything was done correctly and consistently with the leadership of Clayton. We had a tiny problem with one window within a week of installation and their response time was prompt to remedy the situation. Our windows are beautiful. Our home is warm and cozy."
