As you are running through your spring cleaning checklist, don’t neglect your windows and doors! Well-maintained windows and doors will ensure your home’s security, maximize the energy efficiency, and improve your home’s aesthetics. Give yourself a better view of the outdoors and ensure the longevity of all of your windows and doors in just a few steps!
A thorough yearly inspection of your windows and doors is absolutely necessary so you can get ahead of any minor problems before they become a major problem. Loose nuts and bolts, rotten wood, cracked stucco, chipped paint, and clogged door tracks, for example, may seem like rather minor issues, but if left alone year after year, they can quickly and easily cause a host of different problems.
Clean Your Windows & Doors
Not only will regular cleaning of your windows ensure that they look their best, but it can also protect the window from any long-term damage. Clean windows will also ensure that you remove any debris that may be blocking or preventing natural light from coming into your home.
Replace Worn Out Hardware
Worn out hardware makes your windows and doors more susceptible to failure, leaving you more vulnerable to intruders. If you notice that the hardware is worn out or damaged, get them replaced immediately. Your windows and doors should all operate seamlessly, whether you are opening and closing them or locking them, regardless of how old they may be. If you have any difficulty operating your windows and doors, particularly aluminum windows and/or sliding doors, call the windows and doors experts at ARMORVUE for a free consultation.
Repair or Replace Weatherstripping
Your weatherstripping is a large part of the equation on how energy efficient your exterior doors are. Additionally, your weatherstripping is equally key in ensuring your home is watertight and not susceptible to the elements. If you notice that your weatherstripping is broken, loose, or damaged, consider replacing the whole weatherstripping.
Shutter Inspection & Maintenance
Unkempt shutters can have a damaging effect on your home’s value. Even if everything else in your home is pristinely taken care of, grimy and ill-maintained shutters can make your entire home appear unkempt. Therefore, it’s extremely important to do at least a yearly inspection and take care of any potential issues immediately. That being said, if you are tired of the cumbersome aspect of shutter maintenance, contact the experts at ARMORVUE today! We have several window options that eliminate the need for shutters altogether, giving you greater peace of mind and more time to enjoy the beautiful spring season.
