Checking and replacing your window weatherstripping

Weatherstripping is not just important, it’s crucial for proper insulation. Make sure that it’s complete and in good condition. It’s also vital that your window sashes press evenly against the weatherstripping upon closing to ensure maximum insulation. For the doors in your home, weatherstripping plays a major role as well. Check that it is present and in good condition to maintain optimal insulation during the winter months. If you’re uncertain about this important aspect, visit our weatherstripping page.

Checking the state of your exterior caulking

The exterior caulking of your windows is one of the most crucial elements for ensuring the longevity of your window installation. Good caulking protects against moisture, water infiltration, and drafts. Take the time to inspect the caulking around your windows. If you notice any cracks, worn areas, or other signs of deterioration, it may indicate that your caulking needs to be replaced. To learn more about our caulking services, visit our dedicated

Repairing your window hardware

Ensure that the locks and mechanisms of your windows are functioning correctly. A window that doesn’t close properly can lead to significant energy losses. Moreover, it’s crucial to check that all screws are securely in place to ensure a solid fit.

Presence of water, dirt, or unusual reflections

It’s essential to check for the presence of water, dirt, or unusual reflections on your window glass. These can indicate a problem with the sealing of the insulating glass. If this is the case, it’s important to communicate with us so we can assist you with the repair of your windows.

Checking your screens

Make sure that there are no tears or wear on your screens. If you notice that they are damaged, do not hesitate to visit our screen services page.
