Window Maintenance Makes List of Most Important Homeowner Tasks

Your windows have a tremendous impact on the efficiency of your home. Over time, weather or neglect can degrade the insulating properties of your windows, which increases your utility bill. Glass Doctor has been in the glass service industry for years and has seen how a few simple seasonal maintenance tasks can keep your house warm in the winter, and cool in the summer.

This is so important, in fact, that GetNeighborly.com recently included window maintenance on their Home Maintenance Schedule. This schedule was published to give homeowners a guide to follow as the seasons progress so they can stay on top of the most important home maintenance jobs. Neighborly is a national community of local home service professionals that live in your area and are intimately aware of the problems that affect local homes and businesses.

The checklist suggests homeowners inspect their windows and doors every fall for proper insulation and check the seals, screens and locking mechanism. Sealed windows that have a leak will become foggy between the panes, and should be replaced to maintain efficiency. Entry doors should have proper weather stripping. Once spring rolls around, the screens should be inspected for holes, and cleaned of debris and cobwebs.
