Spring is just around the corner, which means everyone is getting busy wiping away the soot and grime that’s accumulated over the winter months. The coming of spring and warm weather is also an opportunity to check your home’s most important features, including your windows and doors.
Today, Window World of Boston, your local home window repair pros, share common window and door problems that make themselves known in the winter.
Sticking Windows and Doors
This problem occurs when some window frame materials expand and contract with changing temperatures. As a result, some windows and doors won’t open or close properly. This difficulty in operation can lead to compromised comfort and safety.
Moisture, whether in the form of humidity, rain or snow, becomes a more pressing concern when winter weather rolls in. Over time, metal and wooden window and door frames can become warped because of prolonged exposure to moisture. Though sometimes not noticeable, a slight shift in the frame can undermine the performance of your windows and doors to a significant degree. Investing in replacement windows would be a better course of action for this issue.
Dual-pane windows feature two glass panes with the space in between filled with inert gas. When leakage occurs, the windows no longer perform as intended. A lack of thermal performance becomes apparent when you notice condensation forming between the glass panes. This can spell trouble for your home’s comfort and energy efficiency. This spring, make sure to address any window and door problems that have manifested over the winter.
