Most modern windows are a lot more durable than the windows that used to be installed in homes. They’re able to stand up to almost anything that you throw at them. But notice that we used the word almost there. That’s because there are some things that could potentially pose a threat to your replacement windows in Tacoma, WA once they go in. Here are 5 things you need to look out for when it comes to your home’s new windows.
Inexperienced window installers
The truth is that your new Tacoma, WA windows could be under attack before your window installation company even leaves your home! If you hire the wrong company, the inexperienced window installers that are asked to handle your window installation might not do a good job. This could result in your windows leaking and not opening and closing properly once you start using them. It’s why it’s important to find the right installers for your new windows.
Your home’s new windows will be able to stand strong during normal thunderstorms. But if the winds in your area ever get to a dangerous level, there is a chance that they could do some damage to your windows. There is also a chance that moisture could find a way into and through your windows if they haven’t been installed the right way.
Do you always have kids running around inside of your house? They could do damage to your windows if they’re not careful. Whether they do it by accidentally hitting a window with a ball or by inadvertently running into a window while wrestling with a sibling, your kids can put your windows in harm’s way. You should talk to them about being as careful as they can be near your windows. You should keep pets away from windows as well.
Did you know that almost 1 billion birds are killed each and every year as a result of flying into windows? They often fly into the windows in homes and businesses and are either stunned for a few minutes or die after failing to recover from the initial collision. You should take steps to prevent birds from flying directly into your windows if you can. They can damage your windows if they fly into them too hard.
