Taking good care of your Windows is paramount to their longevity! Every 5 years check over your Windows and if they need attention ie. rubbing down and painting arrange to have this done as soon as possible. By looking after your Windows with maintenance approximately every 5 years you can expect them to last 60 years or more.
