If you installed Renewal by Andersen of Long Island replacement windows or patio doors in your home recently, you’ve likely been enjoying the cold weather benefits of these new products. Soon, however, you’ll be treated to learning the warmer weather benefits as well. You may however be wondering if there is anything you should be doing to prepare for the change of seasons and coming (hopefully) warmer weather soon.
These tips from our Renewal by Andersen of Long Island team will help you prepare your windows and doors for spring and the moderate weather coming our way soon.
Step #1: Be Smart About Window Treatments
While you’re swapping your winter sweaters for light-weight wraps and warm weather clothes, take a few minutes to clean and store your heavy winter drapes, replacing them with lighter window treatments that allow natural light and warmth to permeate your indoor spaces. A quick Google search for “spring curtains” will literally yield thousands of styles and materials for your consideration!
Step #2: Do a Quick Window & Door Inspection
Since you installed replacement windows designed to perform perfectly for as long as you live in your home, you don’t have to worry about suddenly developing air and moisture leaks.
But, it is important to inspect your home windows a couple of times each year to be sure that there hasn’t been damage from a rock propelled by your mower or a rouge ball thrown by future athletes in training. First, make sure that each window and door opens easily and closes securely. Check the weather-stripping, sealants, glass panels and frames for damage. If you find anything that might be significant, call your local Renewal by Andersen of Long Island customer service department.
Step #3: Deep Clean Everything (including Windows & Doors)!
Since you are going to be checking every window, this is a great time to clean your windows. Our replacement windows are designed to be easy to clean, and you can usually reach both indoor and outdoor surfaces from the comfort of your own home, so you won’t have to waste time running back and forth to get rid of that stubborn spot. Check out these helpful videos for tips on removing grilles and protecting your windows from damage during the cleaning processes.
#4: Finish Your Upgrade Project
If you staged your replacement window project, and still have some older windows waiting to be retired, consider getting your order in now for installation before hot weather arrives. Spring offers moderate weather for this type of home improvement project, and you’ll be glad to have the option to raise the window for natural ventilation in every room this spring. Also, if you opted for the free standard insect screen, you might want to talk with your replacement rep about upgrading to TruScene screens before the no-see-ums get out and about in force.
