Newark, California (EastBayDaily) — As the winter months arrive, homeowners and renters will want to minimize air leakage from their windows to keep the heat in and the cold out. East Bay’s vinyl window company, R & M Quality Windows and Doors offers tips on proper maintenance to get the maximum performance from windows.
Homeowners can minimize air leakage by checking the weather-stripping, hardware and caulking of a window. Since the winter months also bring in rain, controlling water penetration is another important consideration. Keep water drainage pathways, such as weep holes, clear of any debris. Doing so can prevent water build up that can roll over into the home and cause structural deterioration and the possibility of mold growth. Water drainage pathways must be kept clean and clear for the window or door to operate correctly. Also, maintaining the hardware will ensure that windows and doors open, close, lock and unlock easily for years to come.
“R & M wishes all our loyal customers Happy Holidays and best wishes for the New Year,” says Ron, co-owner of R & M Quality Windows and Doors.
