Fall is here, which means it’s time to tackle fall home maintenance tasks. Here are three window and door replacement maintenance tips that you should add to your home maintenance list this fall.
Tip #1: Give Them a Thorough Cleaning
This may seem pretty obvious but you would be surprised at how many homeowners forget to give their windows a good scrubbing during the fall. Your windows have likely accumulated grime throughout the summer from dirt, leaves, twigs and other debris. Cleaning your windows doesn’t just make them look better; it can also extend their lifespan and reduce the risk of premature failure.
Tip #2: Weatherstripping
Window contractors also recommend inspecting the weatherstripping of all your windows. This helps reduce drafts inside your home, which could cause your electricity bills to skyrocket during winter. One good way to check your weatherstripping is by lighting a candle near the window. If the flame pulls one way, then you have an air leak that needs to be addressed right away.
Tip #3: Replace Your Old, Worn-Down Windows
If you’ve been living with inefficient or broken windows for some time, then now is a good time to consider finally replacing them. If you are worried about the cost of replacing your broken or outdated windows, what you need to remember is that leaving them as is could end up costing you more in the long run.
