First step in verifying your doors and windows : the inspection of the sealant condition. We need to make sure that it still sticks and is ”crack free”. Of course, it is important to remplace the sealant if needed.

Then, verify all water draining holes on your doors and windows : located at the door sill level and at the bottom of the windows. Make sure that nothing is blocking them. Be advised that some lesser quality window products might not have any draining holes which could of course increase the risks of water infiltration.

The maintenance of your doors and PVC windows is relatively simple. These products will not require any painting, staining or preventive treatments. Cleaning them can be done with mild cleaning product (like dishwashing soap) mixed with water. Hinges can be lubricated with teflon based products or dry silicone.

1) The frequency at which the door is used.
2) Enough space inside the house.
3) Visibility an light.
4) Opening size and air entry.

Never forget that the choices you make regarding door and window renovation will have a direct impact on your everyday life inside your home. Therefore always take the time to give these matters a great deal of thought before reaching a decision because you will have to live with it for many years to come.

During the course of performing some after sales service ajustments, they frequently encounter situations where they find condensation and ice formation on windows.

These situations are frequent when the window frame goes deeper outside than the actual house frame. People should be aware that there is a general principle stating that a window will perform a lot better if the sealed unit is positioned in the isolated part of the wall. It is even more true when sliding or hung windows are installed in a way that they stick out from the house wall. This could result in the draining holes being blocked by ice therefore preventing the evacuation of water created by the condensation phenomenon.

The security plate : A metal plate installed on the door frame in order to increase the resistance of the deadbolt of your door handle. This option is generally available for only a few dollars more.

22 Gauge steel door : The thickest steel skin available on the residential doors and windows market. Generally, manufacturers will mostly offer 24 or 26 gauge steel for their doors. In this case it is important to understand that in steel gauge, the LOWER the number is, the thicker the steel is. 22 gauge steel will provide you with a more shock-resistant door system.
