Know when its time for replacement windows and doors with a DIY window and door inspection in Cheyenne, Wyoming

When it comes to being a homeowner, the list of to-do’s adds up from day one and never really gets completed. One thing that never gets finished is routine home maintenance. While that’s really broad and all-encompassing, you need to make sure it includes an inspection of your windows and doors so you know when it’s time for replacement windows and doors.

Setting aside even 10-15 minutes to do a fast walk around your home to inspect your windows and doors can help offer a better understanding of which rooms or areas of your home may need repair or maintenance and help you order them.

So before you start doing research on replacement windows and doors, glance over this checklist for your inspection.

  • Check the finishes around your windows and doors and see if you notice any flaking or peeling.

  • Take a close look at the structure of your windows and doors, making note any cracking or deteriorating wood as well as any other damage that could be caused by water.

  • If you discover an issue, find its cause. There might be underlying issues that need a specialist from Prairie Pella Wyoming LLC to come out and take a look, and any information is valued.

  • Clean out your window sills and tracks for dirt and other debris as it might affect the seal and operation of your windows and doors.

  • While you’re checking out your window sills and tracks, check the weather stripping around your windows and doors. Re-attach or replace any broken pieces.

  • Test out the locks on your windows and doors to ensure they are functioning smoothly and correctly.

  • Check the caulking of all your windows and doors as they help guard against air leaks and help protect your home from the elements.
