Cleaning your windows and doors is the easiest and one of the most important ways to keep your windows and doors looking clean and maintaining that curb appeal. There’s a lot to consider when cleaning and doing so incorrectly can, in a worst-case scenario, damage your windows or doors. For example, when cleaning Timber products it’s important to keep in mind that harsh acidic products can damage the paint, the timber itself and over a prolonged period, can degrade the insulation capabilities. On the other hand, Aluminium and uPVC tend to be quite effective against more acidic products due to their synthetic make-up. We always recommend getting in a professional to undertake these tasks especially for higher risk jobs (Upstairs windows etc).
The paint on your windows and doors is the difference between a property that can become the eye sore of the neighbourhood to one that’s looks fresh and eye catching. It is not something that should be taken lightly and depending on what sort of windows and doors you have, it might not be something that you’re able to do yourself. Our timber windows and doors will have a specialised paint on them that is porous, which allows the wood to breathe and evaporate when it rains. If you paint over this porous paint, over the course of the next few years you’re going to rot your timber. Aluminium has a special sprayed on paint that has been treated so it sticks and stays on the material and this kind of paint cannot be purchased at your local hardware or paint shop. Thankfully, upkeep of paint might only need to be done every 10-20 years depending on your specific factors.
Finally, the best thing you can do for your property with regards to keeping it looking fresh and maintaining your ROI is upgrading.
