Spring Home Exterior Checklist – WINDOWS & DOORS

Mar 18, 2022 | door maintenance, window maintenance

Spring is here!

With that warmer weather comes sun, fun and home maintenance. While it’s fresh in your mind, how did your home make out this past winter? Take some time to inspect your roof, windows, doors, and siding.

Open those windows & doors and let that nice breeze into your home!

As you walk around your home looking at your windows, be sure to note or think back on the following:


Is there a noticeable difference in temperature by your windows or doors?

If you are looking to keep the cold out during winter and the heat out during summer your windows and doors play a big factor. Air infiltration can happen through cracks and gaps in the outside shell around your window or door. Heat can also transfer easily through the actual window glass or door depending on the quality of the glass pack or material your door is made of, such as wood. Either one can have a big impact on your home’s energy costs and overall comfort.


Are you experiencing any difficulty opening, closing, and locking your windows or doors?

The ability to easily open, close and lock windows and doors are essential functions. Whether it is an emergency situation, everyday life, or a security issue they need to work properly. In particular, an old window is a more accessible window to break in through as newer windows now have two locks and a reinforced meeting rail.


Is the paint peeling or chipping again? Are you tired of painting?

If you are genuinely tired of this task, a new window or door could be the solution. The result can be boosted curb appeal and more time to do other things!
