Fall is the perfect season to perform all necessary window repairs and maintenance. The weather is good, allowing you and contractors to do the job. More importantly, it helps you prepare your home for the coming winter.
Many homeowners may not know where to start looking for things to fix. Renewal by Andersen of Greater Maine, the trusted expert in replacement windows and doors, gives these maintenance tips:
- Check your window’s energy efficiency: If your energy bills suddenly ballooned, there might be a problem with your windows. They may not be regulating the temperature inside your home anymore, making your cooling and heating system work overtime. This often results in higher heating bills.
To fix it, you can use an energy-efficient glass that can prevent energy from escaping your home. Our High Performance™ Low-E4® glass is the most energy-efficient choice today, regardless of the season.
- Improve aesthetic appeal: Extreme weather conditions and other harsh elements can cause bent frames, warping, chipping and peeling. These may also reduce your home’s aesthetic appeal. Renewal by Andersen® of Greater Maine takes pride in our Fibrex® framing material, which offers both beauty and durability.
- Replace your windows completely: A complete window replacement is the best solution if your existing windows are damaged beyond repair, or if they are already past their lifespan. Renewal by Andersen of Greater Maine offers different types of replacements, from casement to double-hung windows. Rest assured that we have what you need.
These are only some of the things you can do to get your windows ready for the upcoming winter. If you need help deciding if your windows just need to be repaired, or if you need replacements, schedule a FREE in-home consultation today.
