Solutions to Common Window Problems You Didn’t Know

Your windows are exposed to harsh weather conditions every day, making them vulnerable to different kinds of damage. Read on as Renewal by Andersen® of Portland, the leading window replacement contractor, shares some common window problems you might experience and how you can deal with them:

Solutions To Common Window Problems You Didnt Know

Faulty Windows

For windows that are difficult to operate, you may need to adjust or replace the existing hardware. Be sure to inspect the sash support system on your double-hung windows. This is usually located on the sides of your window and hidden under a cover, and may be the reason your window refuses to fall or stay up. For window styles that crank open with a handle, you may need to change the window operator to solve the problem.

Drafty Windows

Seasonal changes can expose hidden leaks in your window frames. It’s important to address this immediately, or your energy bills will rise. Fortunately, this can be easily remedied by replacing worn-down weatherstripping. This is located around your window sash and seals off any gaps between your window and the frame. Worn-down weatherstripping is a sign that your windows are at the end of their service life, so turn to Renewal by Andersen of Portland to determine whether you need a window replacement, as well.

Foggy Glass

If your windows look foggy, the insulation seal may be broken, which means you’ll need a window replacement. Alternatively, the window frame might be broken, allowing cold outdoor air inside your home that fogs up upon mixing with the warmer indoor air. We can inspect your windows to determine whether the fogging is normal or if it is a sign that something is wrong.
