    A Basic Guide to New Window and Door Care

    Last updated 5 years ago

    A new set of windows and doors is a great way to beautify your home. Unfortunately, the upgrade won’t last long if your new fixtures begin to collect filth. The best way to keep your doors and windows looking great is with proper care. Use these tips to help your windows and doors look like new for years to come:

    • Hire a Professional to Install New Fixtures
    One of the most important factors in window and door care is actually the installation. The right installation will ensure that your windows remain air tight and that your doors fit properly into their frames. Improperly fit doors and windows are likely to develop performance issues, increasing the wear and tear on your entryways. Avoid this issue by choosing a window installation professional to perform your home upgrades.

    • Perform Routine Maintenance
    The materials used in your windows and doors will affect the type of maintenance you need to perform. Vinyl windows, for example, are very low maintenance, so a simple soapy wash rag will be enough to remove most stains. Wood windows and doors and aluminum windows, on the other hand, require routine sealing to protect them from the elements. Finally, metal doors require regular lubrication to perform properly.

    • Follow All Care Instructions
    There are several common door and window care mistakes to avoid. For example, make sure to keep abrasive cleaning products away from your vinyl windows. The powerful chemicals in these cleaning liquids are strong enough to eat away at your window frames. Another helpful tip is to maintain the paint job on your wood windows—after all, a good paint job forms a powerful defense against moisture intrusion.
