To ensure that your investment stands the test of time, we’ve put together a comprehensive guide on how to maintain your replacement windows for long-lasting performance.

1. Regular Cleaning

  • **Frequency is Key:** Regularly clean your windows to prevent the buildup of dirt and debris. Aim for a thorough cleaning at least twice a year.
  • **Use Mild Solutions:** Opt for mild soapy water or a vinegar-water solution for cleaning. Avoid abrasive cleaners, as they can damage the window’s surface.
  • **Soft Cloth or Sponge:** Wipe down the frames and glass with a soft cloth or sponge to maintain the pristine look of your windows.

2. Inspect Seals and Weather Stripping

  • **Check Regularly:** Inspect the seals and weather stripping around your windows regularly to ensure they are intact.
  • **Replace if Necessary:** If you notice any wear or damage, don’t hesitate to replace the seals or weather stripping promptly. This helps maintain energy efficiency.

3. Lubricate Moving Parts

  • **Smooth Operation:** To ensure your windows open and close smoothly, lubricate moving parts such as hinges and rollers with a silicone-based lubricant.
  • **Prevent Sticking:** Regular lubrication prevents sticking and ensures that your windows function optimally.

4. Address Condensation Promptly

  • **Ventilation is Key:** Proper ventilation is crucial to prevent condensation. Use exhaust fans and keep your home well-ventilated.
  • **Wipe Away Moisture:** If condensation occurs, promptly wipe away the moisture to prevent damage to the window frames and sills.

5. Protect Against Harsh Elements

  • **Use Curtains or Blinds:** Curtains or blinds can provide an additional layer of protection against harsh sunlight and extreme weather conditions.
  • **Consider Storm Windows:** In areas with severe weather, consider installing storm windows for added protection.

6. Professional Inspection

  • **Schedule Regular Inspections:** Schedule professional inspections at least once a year to identify any potential issues early on.
