With winter on its way, it’s not too late to assess, repair or replace your current windows and doors. If maintaining your home’s security and structural integrity is important to you, keep reading to discover the benefits to door and window maintenance.
Having assisted many of customers over the years, we have found that door and window issues tend to become more of a problem during the colder months. Unfortunately, many of these problems go unnoticed as there are often no obvious symptoms during warmer periods.
What many people do not realise is that their doors and windows do not necessarily need to display visible issues for them to benefit from regular maintenance check ups. In fact, ensuring your doors and windows are correctly maintained each year offers multiple benefits.
Firstly, well maintained doors and windows are fantastic for security – the majority of burglaries in the UK are opportunistic, meaning burglars often spot an open window or poorly closed door and take their chance. With expensive Christmas gifts laying around in many homes, keeping your doors and windows secure is more important that ever.
It is probably no surprise to hear that poorly maintained doors and windows can also let the wind and rain in, causing damage to your home and discomfort to you and your loved ones. Heat loss is also a common side effect from these issues which will have negative effects on your home’s energy efficacy, increasing heating bills.
If your doors and windows are made from wood, it is especially important to carry out regular inspections as they may swell in damp conditions, making opening and closing difficult.
At Windrush Door & Window Services, we regularly check, repair or replace our clients’ doors and windows to prevent these very problems from occurring in the first place. We find our occasional check ups really help maintain our clients’ confidence and overall security.
On top of the following benefits mentioned, regular maintenance also extends the overall working life of your doors and windows, helping to avoid unnecessary call out fees if anything does go wrong.
