Winter Window Woes: How to Spot and Fix Issues

It's the middle of winter, which means the cold weather has been freezing our houses for a while. In addition to all of the other maintenance you've probably done on your home to get ready for the season, it is essential that you put forth the same amount of care to your windows, too. Taking the time to spot (and properly fix) small issues today will save you a world of trouble as time goes on.


Help Us Help You!

Please inspect your boxes before signing for them. When you sign for an order without noting obvious damage to the boxes, you are giving the freight carrier a "get out of jail free" card. They may not honor a claim, even if it is obvious that they were at fault. We had a situation where a good customer was busy and signed for the packages without checking for damage. Ten minutes later, they noticed the damage, took pictures, and emailed us, but the carrier denied the claim because they had "signed clear" the document. We will fight for you and for what is right. Please don't sign clear without inspecting! That is our only enforcement tool.

Thank you!

Still, he was dismayed by how much air leaked in during the winter, even with outside storm windows in place.

Better Homes & Gardens
Wall frames are a traditional design element commonly found in Georgian and neoclassical settings. However, they can be right at home in virtually any style—even a house that's decidedly modern.
