Here at The Keystone Contractor, we specialize in remodelling projects that will make homeowners fall in love with their homes again. One of our high-quality services is installing new windows. However, once we’ve come and gone, it’s important to make sure you’re taking good care of your windows to keep them in good shape for years to come. Here are some of our best tips for taking care of your new windows.
- Don’t forget to clean them. Like with any other part of your home, you don’t want to neglect your home’s windows. Thoroughly cleaning your windows at least a couple of times a year will help keep your windows durable, so don’t forget about them during your next spring cleaning. This includes cleaning the glass, frame, and screen.
- Use lubrication. Without lubrication, your windows may have a hard time opening and closing. Different window tracks require different lubricants to open properly. For example, if you have a wooden window track, you should use a wax-based lubricant.
- Call in the professionals if you see an issue. It’s always a good idea to take preventative measures to keep your windows looking and working properly, but sometimes things happen despite your best efforts. Make sure to call in professionals if you notice a chip or crack, no matter how small.
When we install new windows, we take care to do the best job we can. We are fully insured and stand by our work, so reach out to us today if you are in need of a window installation or replacement job.
