The new year is the best time to ensure your house is spic and span, to inspect for damage, or to check your newly installed windows in Omaha. Most homeowners seek an expert’s opinion on these matters, and the new year is your best opportunity to do so. This way, you can identify potential problems early enough in the year to be able to resolve them as soon as possible. Renewal by Andersen® of Omaha and Lincoln, a trusted replacement window supplier and contractor in the area, offers a list of questions homeowners often ask about their windows:
How do I maintain my newly replaced windows? Clean your windows as often as you can. Window maintenance depends on its design. Aluminum-clad windows, for example, can get away with no paint—this makes it more cost-effective. Old types of double-hung windows should be cleaned from outside, but new ones can be cleaned from the inside, making it easier for you to maintain it. Also check the exterior rims of your replacement windows. Those rims need not be painted.
Is it more cost-effective if I install a storm window? If you live in an area where it rains all year round, it is probably more cost-effective to protect your current window with storm windows. Storm windows are additional glass panes that not only save energy, but also reduce sound, protecting you more during a hurricane.
My windows are starting to creak. What do I do? Newly replaced windows come with a warranty package. You can call your replacement contractor and ask for a repair or a refund, depending on your contract.
I want to reduce noise. What should I do? If you need replacement windows and decide you want noise-reducing ones, choose a product with high noise-blocking properties.Renewal by Andersen has a range of specialized windows exactly for this need. Renewal by Andersen windows use impact-resistant inter layering glass, which effectively obstructs sound waves.
