Kirkland Replacement Windows

Kirkland replacement windows can help you keep your home looking bright and fresh no matter how old your property is. Taking the time to install Washington replacement windows will give your home the appearance of being well-kept and cared for, increasing the value of your Kirkland property and its appeal to potential buyers or lenders you may wish to entice. This is also a great way to update the curb appeal or decor of your home that you never have to worry about going out of style.

Dealing with Moisture

Washington is known for having a very moist climate, and Kirkland is no exception to this rule. You will need to select Kirkland replacement windows that can stand up to the rain and humidity that is common throughout the year in WA. For example, if you want your replacement windows to include a wood frame, you will need to seal it with a high quality paint or varnish or else your frame will swell and rot as it absorbs moisture from the air. Taking the time to keep up your Kirkland replacement windows will be essential if you want to get the maximum life out of your product.

Your Kirkland replacement windows will need to deal with the rain in WA, but you will also need to address the moisture in your home. If your Kirkland property tends to be damp, then your replacement windows may develop a condensation problem. Condensation will not damage your frames, but it can lead to mold issues if this moisture is not addressed. Encourage healthy air flow throughout the rooms of your home by making sure vents are not blocked and look into whether or not a dehumidifier would be appropriate to combat issues with condensation that might arise later.

Though Washington is not known for getting severe storms, you will still need to consider how well your panes will hold up to heavy rain without leaking. Storm replacement window panes may be a necessary upgrade for your Kirkland replacement windows to prevent this problem. These replacement windows are made with multiple panes of glass to prevent cool temperatures and moisture outdoors making their way into your home and causing rooms to be uncomfortable. Storm panes are also more sturdy, so if you are located in a noisy area of Kirkland or tend to be hit heavily by the wind you do not need to worry about your product being rattled.

Washington homeowners also tend to have their Kirkland replacement windows treated to be moisture resistant. This chemical coating will force moisture to run down the panes instead of collecting there. With moisture resistant panes you do not need to worry about your view being clouded and the cool water cannot chill the glass which can decrease the overall temperature of your room. Moisture resistant chemicals can also act as an insulation barrier which cuts down air flow so your home can function at a more energy efficient level.

Choosing the Right Caulk

When your Kirkland replacement windows are installed, your crew will apply caulk to all of the seams to prevent moisture and air flow and to help keep your replacement windows in place. In a climate like that in WA you will not need to worry as much about your caulk drying out, but you will still need to replace it every few years to ensure a tight seal. Kirkland homeowners should keep track of what type of caulk was used on their replacement windows so you are aware of how long the seal is expected to last.

When re-caulking your Kirkland replacement windows it is essential that you remove all of the old caulk before you begin. You can accomplish this by carefully prying it loose with a paint scraper. Failure to do this will not only make your Kirkland home look sloppy and unkempt but it will also prevent the caulk from adhering properly to your window and making the tight seal you want. You may also need to sand the edges of the frame smooth if it is made of wood and the edges have become jagged or splintered since they were installed.

Select a brand of caulk that will match the color of your window frame and is intended to function in wet climates. Insert the tube of caulk into a caulking gun, carefully snip the tip and apply a line of caulk along every seam in the frame. Do not apply a heavy amount, but make sure to go over any bare spots to get the ideal seal on your Kirkland replacement windows. Once you have applied the caulk, use a paint scraper or edging tool to scrape away the excess and push the caulk into the seam for the most effective seal.
