How to Make Sure Your Windows and Doors Will Last for Decades

When you invest your time and energy into a project, whether you’re a builder, a renovator, designer, architect, or simply a homeowner, you want to know that your work is going to live up to its potential. Professionals of all kinds spend years on their crafts to ensure that the process will improve their abilities and teach them something, but they also want results that will prove durable, reliable, and long-lasting.

We here at Golden Windows have been learning for over five decades about what makes the most energy-efficient, environmentally-friendly, aesthetically pleasing, and durable windows and doors. The fact is that these products are not only supposed to be beautiful, but they must also be able to perform at incredibly high standards in order to be worth their manufacturing costs. Below are some ideas on what you can do to extend the lifespan of your new windows and doors.

Buy Premium

First of all, you can’t expect twenty years out of a product that was hastily designed to do just the bare minimum for your building. Windows that aren’t double or triple-paned, treated with coatings and gases for better insulation, or engineered for smooth, trouble-free performance will simply not make much of a difference in terms of energy-efficiency. That’s why it’s important to invest in premium products that guarantee excellence in minimizing heat transfer and optimizing ventilation. We’re so sure our merchandise will exceed your expectations that we offer a standard residential warranty to customers that covers damage for two decades on the performance of the thermal insulating unit.

Trust the Professionals

 This warranty only stands when products are professionally installed and correctly used and maintained, it makes the most sense to trust our team of experts with your project. Not only will they ensure that the product is perfectly fitted and sealed so that no air or moisture leaks through, but they’ll also be able to advise you on the simple seasonal cleaning and maintenance procedures that will keep your windows at optimal performance for decades.

Create Garden Space

One thing people rarely take into consideration, especially because houses and businesses may change possession over the course of time, is that plants and shrubbery can damage windows and doors if they aren’t properly pruned. When flower bushes and other greenery surround a windowsill, especially a wooden one, they create a space for moisture and dampness to persist and cause rot or mold. Pine trees growing too close to a patio door and certain kinds of planters that drain onto sills can also be the cause of similar damage, because the sun can’t get through the greenery to dry up the area, and constant watering over the years will wear even the highest quality wood down. To avoid this issue, create a six-inch gap with pruning shears, and enjoy beautiful windows for a long time to come!
