One of the many advantages of modern double glazing is the low maintenance properties of both aluminium and PVCu windows.
If you are replacing old timber windows for example, you will be looking forward to no longer having to maintain them.

You will be delighted with your new windows and doors from Capital Windows, but it is important to look after them.

Your windows and doors will require little maintenance but you should be aware that no window or door is a “fit and forget” product. Our cars as one example are far more reliable in recent years but we still maintain them.
Routine cleaning and maintenance on windows and doors is also important. Whilst this does not need to be done very frequently, it is important to carry it out.

Some doors and windows are used more than others.

Your front door is arguably the most regularly used in the home. If you have a large family and plenty of visitors your front door will opened and closed many times a day.
It is good to check that your locks work correctly and the door is still closing correctly. Simple adjustment of hinges and locks will be required should your door require it.
Conservatory roofs are also far more exposed to the elements than vertical windows and doors. So keeping your flat glass surfaces clean is also important.

Remember to clean your frames as well as your glass.

By far routine cleaning of the frames is the best way to get long life and that as new appearance from your windows and doors.
For powder coated aluminium windows, regular cleaning of the frames will keep the finish looking like new for many years to come.
If you have patio doors, ensure the bottom track is always kept clean of debris to help the rollers keep the doors sliding smoothly.
