Those cool mornings have been a treat, haven’t they? They’re a reminder that fall and winter are on their way. While you don’t have to put away your summer gear quite yet, it is smart to start thinking ahead to your fall chores, including swapping out your screens for storm windows. Now’s a great time to repair broken storm windows.
Inspecting Your Storm Windows
Storm windows help insulate your home against winter’s chill and provide some protection against the elements. If your storm windows have been in the shed, basement, or closet for the last few months, bring them out now to inspect them. Spray them down with your favorite window washing fluid, and then give them a once-over. Is there peeling paint or rotting wood on the frames? If your windows have aluminum frames, are they dented or warped? Does the glass fit snugly in the frames? Are there chips or cracks in the glass you need to repair before installing your windows this fall?
If the answer to any of these questions is “yes,” then it’s time to perform some repairs.
