Concord Replacement Windows

It is important to properly maintain your Concord replacement windows once you have bought them and they are installed. There are many reasons for this. First, you want to keep them in good working order. Second, you should always take care of any investment. Most importantly however is that you do not want to void the Concord replacement windows warranty.

Proper Care is Key

Like anything else, your Concord window will need to be maintained throughout its life to ensure it will last as long as possible. The best way to ensure that any product will last is to keep it cleaned and maintained. Your North Carolina replacement windows are no different. A little bit of regular maintenance will go miles and miles in ensuring and even extending the life of your NC product.

You must always keep your Concord replacement windows clean in order to keep them in good working order. This does not mean you have to clean them daily, but they should be done on at least a monthly basis. If there are any storms with excessive wind or showers, you shouldn't wait until the next scheduled cleaning, but should clean them right away. The reason for this is that dust and grime can get in to mechanics and ruin them. Also, adding a little oil to the mechanisms at that time will help keep them in good working order.

There are other things beside the NC weather that threaten to damage your Concord replacement windows, so you must be diligent. While a storm can batter your window by itself, it can also be aided by things like improper drainage and routing of rain gutters and roof awnings. During the next storm, head outside and observe to see if the drainage is in fact being carried away from the house. If it is not, you will want to fix this not only for the long term care of your Concord windows, but also to prevent damage to other parts of your NC home.

Other things that can cause damage exist as well. Wayward sprinklers that are aimed at or near the window and not out into the yard can be harmful. Also, screens and shutters that are installed improperly or damaged can wreak havoc. Make sure they are safe from these.

Installation Done Right

Before you can even begin to maintain your Concord replacement windows, they must be installed. Improper installation will not only void your North Carolina replacement windows warranty, but could also potentially cause a lot of damage and harm to your Concord home.

Each window you purchase comes with a manufacturer's installation guide. This guide will outline for you exactly how your Concord replacement windows should be installed. If your Concord retailer does not follow these instructions and something goes wrong with the window down the line, the manufacturer will not honor your warranty.

While the installer has a responsibility to know the proper procedure when installing a window or doing repairs like window sash replacement, the duty in making sure this is done ultimately falls to you since you are the one getting the guaranty. Ask the retailer that sells you the replacement for this installation guide. Familiarize yourself with it. Then pay close attention while your window is being installed to ensure it is done correctly.

Obviously it can be a challenge to know precisely if the job is being done correctly. You are not a professional, and while reading the installation guide will help, it does not replace experience. You can look out for certain things that will indicate to you whether or not the installation is being done properly. The biggest thing is to verify that your replacement windows have been caulked appropriately. Check for leaks to make sure.

The Paint Job is Important

Of course you do not have to paint your Concord replacement windows, and not everyone does. Many Concord homeowners prefer the look they have when they come off the showroom floor. However, should you decide to paint yours, you will need to make sure this is done properly as well. Wooden frames are especially vulnerable to the damage that a shoddy paint job can cause or lead to, so if you have purchased North Carolina replacement windows with wooden frames be especially cautious.

First, the frames should never be painted before the Concord replacement windows are installed. The installation process can damage the paint job, causing the need for them to be repainted after they are in your Concord home. Additionally, painting a window before it is installed can cause the paint to get into places it should not be, which could cause damage to your replacement windows. Also, be sure to check your Concord replacement windows owner's manual to determine how many coats of paint are required.
