With new Andersen windows, the experts at T&K Contractors in NJ can replace those old, drafty windows with beautiful, new windows, ensuring the seal and window pane are of the highest quality and installed properly to ensure the highest energy savings. And with all of the new energy efficient options available, including multiple-pane glass, low-emissivity glass coatings and Pella innovation, your new windows will have you feeling better about your contribution to the world.
Once your windows are installed, it’s important to maintain them regularly. It’s not just seasonal cleanings that are necessary, but it’s important to periodically check your windows for consistent performance and quality:
- Verify that all hardware is secure and not damaged, tightening any loose screws.
- Examine the window’s frame and materials to ensure they are intact. Occasional repairs may be needed, especially to wooden windows, however when painting, staining and repairing, make sure to keep the solution away from the weather-strip as it can make it weak.
- Check that all moving parts continue to move smoothly. If not, they may require repairs. Depending on the depth of the damage, a professional may be needed.
- Check the weather-stripping to ensure it is still intact and keeping the seal as tight as possible. Weather-strip acts as a barrier between your home and the window and is important in keeping your home cool in the summer and warm in the winter.
- Ensure the caulking is intact. If there is any caulk that is splitting or pulling away, remove the damaged caulk and replace using new caulk.
- As always, keep your windows clean with a good quality cleaner.
