Home Windows Maintenance

Windows serve a three-fold purpose in our homes: They provide natural light, ventilation, and means of escape in case of fire. Window frames can be made of wood, metal, or vinyl. Wood is strong and light but needs maintenance.

Vinyl windows generally require less maintenance than wood and seem to be fairly price-competitive with other windows. That's why vinyl is becoming the material of choice for most new residential window installations.

No matter the material of windows, you need keeping them clean. In order to keep the window looking good, you are going to have to get out your scrapers, putty and paint every couple of years. When inspecting windows, gives more attention to the condition of the sealant used between the window frame and other various window components. It is important to minimize energy loss through the windows.
