Door Maintenance for the Fall Season

Door Maintenance for the Fall Season

September 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.

fall door maintenance

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.

When it comes to the very best in doors and windows, you can count on Renewal by Andersen of Milwaukee to deliver the most worthwhile and cost-effective solutions. Contact us and we’ll be more than happy to help you figure out which door or window types will suit your homes.

Hear From Our Customers

Jason and Brett did an awesome job installing our doors. We had separate installers a month earlier for our windows who also did a fantastic job. They were all very professional and cleaned up almost better than the area looked before the installation! Since these were both jobs that took more than one day the installers were great at keeping us informed on the status of where the project was at along the way.

This was a great crew to work with. Both the original install manager we worked with (Jay) and the install team (Daniel, Mason, Tony, Ethan, and Jose). Everyone was very professional and knowledgable. They answered all my questions and the end result on the house is great. In 3 days they replaced an old bay window with a new bay window, a set of french doors on the patio with a sliding patio door, and our old front door with a new front door and storm door.

I cant express how happy we are with choosing Andersen for our window installation. Our sales representative was knowledgeable with product and answered any questions we had without hesitation. I did also fill out a survey that was sent in an email, but sadly I failed to personally name the two gentlemen that performed the actual installation. Barrett and Francisco were our guys, and let me tell you, they were outstanding!!! They did Excellent work and were professional as well as efficient and made this a smooth, none evasive process for us. I strongly recommend this company and these installers to anyone in need of windows!!! My husband and I could not be more pleased we chose Andersen for replacing our windows!!!
