Home Window Care During Winter

Winter often comes on quickly, and despite knowledge of the calendar year and seasons, takes homeowners off guard. There are ways to avoid emergencies, and that is to prepare yourself ahead of time, and Glass Doctor® of [franchise:location- name] can help you do just that. Preparing your home for winter means thinking about a few different scenarios. Inclement weather, freezing temps and heavy snowfall can all wreak havoc on your home. Bolstering up your defenses can save time and money, and keep you toasty on the coldest days.

Get it Fixed Beforehand

Maintenance is a large part of home ownership. By caring for or repairing systems as they experience issues, you can head off further problems. Glass Doctor of Kitchener-Waterloo can help you with the glass doors and windows in your home, and make sure they are functioning properly during the chilly season.

One thing our glass specialists will address is making sure your windows are correctly sealed. If you already suspect that’s an issue, or you note broken elements or pieces, then it’s time to call. Two signs of faulty seals include fogging or condensation. In addition, windows that aren’t installed or performing correctly can cost you in energy bills and make rooms colder when the temps drop. If your home still has single pane windows, you may even want to opt for a double pane replacement over window glass repair to maximize your efficiency.

Consider Replacement

Single pane windows or dated or faulty double pane windows can reduce the efficiency and appeal of your home. Sometimes replacement is the choice that will save you the most money in the long run, and increase your home’s comfort during the winter months. Our experts can help you choose the right avenue. Our glass specialists can replace the panes in existing frames, while other times a full replacement is more effective. Our glass experts will help you prepare for winter with the right installation.
