The type of maintenance youíll need to do will depend on whether you have a wooden or uPvc sash windows. If you have wooden windows youíll need to ensure that the paint or gloss has not worn away to expose the natural wood in its untreated form.
Exposing wood to weather conditions that is not in some way treated, painted or glossed will cause the wood to rot and deteriorate over time. Make sure youíre repainting or glossing your windows when needed.
The best tip we can give you is to always sand down the previous layer before adding your new coat. Painting over it will cause a build up which will leave space for burglars to use an object to pry open the windows.
If you have uPvc windows, the maintenance is easier. Ensure you are wiping your windows clean, build-up can cause the windows seal to loosen overtime and let water and condensation leak into the inside of the window. If you have white uPvc windows that are beginning to discolour, you can get cleaning solvent to help bring them back to their original state.
