4 Tips on Keeping Your Sliding Windows in Good Shape

Sliding windows might be prone to overuse due to their nature, which can lead to premature wearing down and damage. At Renewal by Andersen® of Knoxville, we’d like to impart some useful tips on how you can maintain and ensure that your windows are in top shape always.

Sliding Windows

1. Clean Your Windows

Any good maintenance routine starts by cleaning the sliding window in a thorough manner. Wipe and remove any dirt you find. This is especially important in winter as this is usually when small issues might escalate and worsen.

2. Clean Your Sliding Frame

Unlike your stationary bay windows, the damage to sliding windows is usually on its track. Over hundreds of times of operation, the track will wear down, causing problems like getting stuck. It’s often best to inspect the frames while cleaning and use a precise cleaning material to brush or wash the built-up grime or dirt under the rails.

3. Insulation

Another climate-sensitive tip: windows need to be properly insulated to prevent any cracks that might occur as the seasons transition. If unchecked, it will interfere with the operation of the window. This is also important for older sliding windows.

4. Contact a Window Contractor
