As the experts in home remodeling, S&S Remodeling understands the importance of quality windows.

Whether you’ve just replaced your windows or are thinking of doing so, it’s essential to keep them in top condition. Proper maintenance will ensure that your windows continue to provide you with the comfort and security you need for years to come. Here are some tips on how to care for and maintain your replacement windows.

  1. Clean your windows regularly

Keeping your windows clean is essential for their longevity and appearance. Dirt and grime can accumulate on the glass and frame, causing discoloration and scratches. Regular cleaning will also help you identify any damage early on, so you can address it promptly. Use a soft cloth and a non-abrasive cleaning solution to wipe down the glass and frame. Avoid using harsh chemicals, as they can damage the finish and seals.

  1. Check for damage

Check your windows periodically for any signs of damage, such as cracks, gaps, or leaks. Damaged windows can compromise your home’s energy efficiency and security, so it’s crucial to address any issues as soon as possible. If you notice any damage, contact a professional window installer like S&S Remodeling to assess the situation and recommend a solution.

  1. Lubricate moving parts

If your replacement windows have moving parts like hinges or tracks, they will need occasional lubrication to function properly. Use a silicone-based lubricant to ensure that the parts move smoothly and avoid any rust or corrosion.

  1. Inspect weatherstripping

The weatherstripping on your windows helps to keep out drafts and moisture. Over time, it can become damaged or loose, compromising its effectiveness. Inspect the weatherstripping periodically to ensure that it is in good condition. If you notice any damage, have it replaced promptly.

  1. Consider window treatments

Window treatments like blinds or curtains can help protect your replacement windows from direct sunlight, which can cause fading and discoloration. They can also provide an extra layer of insulation, improving your home’s energy efficiency.

By following these simple tips, you can keep your replacement windows in excellent condition and extend their lifespan. Remember, if you need any help with your windows or any other home remodeling projects, S&S Remodeling is here to help. Contact us today to schedule a consultation.

    Gavin Subers was excellent at reviewing our needs and recommended a Craftbuilt-Aristocrat retractable awning for our residence. We had the work completed in April and couldn't be happier. Joe Paris and his assistant (also named Joe) did a great job on the installation. I highly recommend S & S Remodeling!

    Would recommend S & S highly. Being a senior citizen and not knowing what is what. I needed a new roof and Zach worked with me and his crew did a phenomenal job. Thank you so much again Zach. Will be calling in the future to get more work done. God Bless, Frank and Ann Marie Dunlap Siermine.
