What’s Easier To Clean? Replacement vs. Older Windows

December 22, 2014

There are numerous benefits to be had from investing in replacement windows in Albany NY. As most people know, replacing your old windows can help you generate significant savings in terms of much lower energy consumption and costs. But did you also know that replacement windows are a lot easier to clean and maintain than old windows?

Cleaning old windows can be a difficult, time-consuming and, possibly, dangerous task. As tempting as it may be to put off your window-cleaning chores, however, you just can’t keep on postponing the inevitable: Windows need to be thoroughly cleaned at least twice a year to ensure that they continue to function properly, age at a slower rate, and continue to look good longer.

Investing in replacement windows, on the other hand, can make cleaning and maintenance a breeze. Many homeowners who have had window replacement in Albany NY can attest to the high quality of Renewal by Andersen windows, which are actually engineered to make cleaning and regular maintenance easier compared to cleaning old windows.


Well, for one thing, Renewal by Andersen replacement windows are better able to withstand harsh weather conditions because of their tough Fibrex® frames. Fibrex frames are extremely stable, and don’t require repainting or repairs whenever a storm hits.

Furthermore, because of the advancements made in window design, technology and manufacturing, sashes on Renewal by Andersen windows are easier to open or close for safe and simple cleaning; in comparison, older windows will usually stick and are often harder to operate.

Keeping windows clean translates to a brighter home—allowing the light to shine in and providing an aesthetically pleasing view, both from within your home and from the outside. Regular cleaning will also ensure that your window will last longer, even through different and, at times, harsh weather conditions. Investing in Renewal by Andersen replacement windows can make your twice-a-year window-cleaning and inspection task a whole lot simpler and hassle-free.
