You may already know that window care is very important. Whether you have new or older windows, maintaining your windows and routine check-ups are an essential part of preserving the life of the windows. The longer you have your windows, the more susceptible they will be to damage. However, that doesn’t necessarily mean your windows are no good after 5, 10 or even 15 years. Age is just a general, estimated time length of how long your windows will last and how well they are performing in the meantime. If your windows are 25 years old or older, then we recommend looking into replacing them.
Routinely checking in on your windows and making sure there are no leaks, cracks or air drafts is what’s going to help them maintain their appropriate lifespan. And, as a plus, it’s going to help you avoid major issues in your home. As any homeowner knows, water leaks can be damaging to a property and can be very expensive to fix. This goes for air leaks as well. While air leaks and drafts aren’t necessarily damaging to your home, they’re damaging to your pocket. Air leaks and drafts make your home unseasonably cold and warm and downright uncomfortable. Air leaks from windows will also cause you to raise the heat or air conditioning more than normal. Thus, causing a dramatic increase in energy bills…which are already expensive.
It’s also important to watch what your windows come in contact with every day. It can be hard to keep a watchful eye on pets and children all the time, but it’s important to check your windows periodically for anything out of the norm such as paint, crayon or any severe scratches or dents.
While this may seem like an unlikely thing to do, it’s important to check your windows for any tape residue or possibly damaging scratches that can stunt your windows lifespan and ability to perform at their maximum capability. A great way to do this is to make a checklist. The list will absolutely aid you in keeping on top of your windows and saving yourself a lot of hassle, money, and time down the road.
