Proper Care for Windows

Swing Doors

It is important that you make sure that your windows are updated and functioning properly in order for them to continue providing the protection your home deserves. Here are some tips as to how you can maintain care for your windows:

  • Annual Inspection: It is crucial that you inspect your Energy Efficient windows at least once a year. Closely examine them for any signs of wear that will need replacement. Condensation in between the panes, windows that get stuck, or any sign of damage around the frame are signs that you need repairs.
  • Caulking: The sealant or caulking around your windows helps ensure that they are watertight, and if any part of the window sealant is cracked, broken or completely missing, it needs to be fixed immediately. Cracked window sealant can let in water, and even the most minor leaks can cause permanent damage.
  • Window Tracks: It is more important to have clean tracks than glass concerning your windows. When dirt and debris build up in the tracks, it makes your window more prone to getting stuck, and cleaning the tracks can circumvent that problem.

If you follow these measures and find irreparable damage, then it is time for a replacement. Contact Shield BP today if you’re considering upgrading your home!
