If you live in a cold climate area, your windows tend to be kept shut more often than open. If your windows are not closed properly during the winter, the operating hardware can become rusty and as a result will cause problems with the operation once the winter is over. When preparing for the winter season, make sure that your windows are operating properly. Doing so will assure that there was no influencing factors from the winter that may have affected the window’s functionality. It is also important that all windows that will not be used over the course of the season are closed properly, and locked air tight using the window hardware. This will prevent any penetration of ice, water or snow to reside between the sash and the frame which could cause rusting.
