Door Maintenance for the Fall SeasonSeptember 15, 2015
Your doors invite people into your home as well as provide protection from the elements. That’s especially critical this fall, when temperatures start to drop and things start to get chilly. There are many things that can cause your door’s performance to lag. That’s why Renewal by Andersen® of Milwaukee has a few tips for keeping your entry door and patio doors in the best shape possible.
1. Have them regularly inspected.
There are some signs of damage to your doors that can be obvious to anyone. Your entry door, for instance, could have a damaged hinge that causes the whole door to sag. Or your sliding patio door might have a huge crack across its glass. As easy as this might sound, just remember that there are many more things about your doors in MilwaukDoors Milwaukeeee that only a professional can spot effectively.
2. Keep your doors clean.
You normally hear people talk about cleaning windows while doors seem to escape notice. The truth is: cleaning your doors is just as important. For one thing, it keeps them looking good—which is especially relevant for classy French doors. A clean window can also give you an easier time finding damage and other problems that need tending to. A simple wipe with water is often enough—from there, you can leave a more in-depth inspection to the professionals.
3. Replace what needs replacing.
While a lot of things can be repaired, there’s a big benefit to replacing your patio and entry doors in Milwaukee with those from Renewal by Andersen: energy-efficiency. We use Fibrex® for our frames—a composite material that resists heat transfer across its surface. Paired with it is High-Performance™ Low-E4® glass used in the panes. Together, these lower the pressure on your HVAC units and save you a considerable sum off your energy bills.
