Windows and sliding doors are the most overlooked aspect of home maintenance. It is easy to forget about them, but they are what keeps your house sealed up tight and warm in winter. Windows let in natural light and air while sliding doors provide an unrestricted view of the backyard or other rooms within the house. They can also be used as a way to get some fresh air into the room without opening windows where bugs might enter. With so many benefits, these features must remain functional all year round.
The good news is that window repairs are not difficult to do yourself if you have a little bit of time on your hands and some patience with learning new skills.
