Sliding Window / October 31, 2018 / Guillaume Roussel.
Remove The Windows. You can easily remove the windows by sliding it open past the lift blocks and then placing your hands on either side of the window and lifting it out of its track. You can then remove the window towards you. Do the same with the other window and place them in a safe area. Proceed With The Washing. Wash them using a window cleaning solution and a nonlint cloth. Make sure to thoroughly clean the glass and remove any stains that you will find. Start from the upper left corner of your window glass and proceed downward using an Sshaped motion for wiping the window.
Always be sure to avoid abrasive cleaners such as cleansers and products containing bleach as they can affect the vinyl surface or the caulking around the window. Also avoid using a power washer or hard spraying hose as this too can damage the caulk. Besides occasional exterior cleaning the tracks and runners on your vinyl sliders should be checked every few weeks to make sure they are clear of debris. Vinyl sliding windows glide horizontally and open the full length of the window.
At first you will be having a hard time removing and placing the windows back in place. You need to learn how to work on them which later on can be easier. Cleaning these kinds of windows is not that easy especially if you are doing it alone. You need to develop certain skills to be able to perfectly finish the cleaning. Sliding panels are a great alternative to window blinds and horizontal window doors. They have a softer look than glass and can also be great accents in an Asian themed decor. Sliding panels have that special ability to be both wall and window at the same time. They filter light and provide privacy at the same time.
Window grills vary greatly in price depending on the size of the window and the style of the grill but probably the average is $150$200 per window. Most insurance policies require either a keylocking window lock or security grill. This is sometimes in the fine print. If you dont have one of these forms of security you may be giving your insurance company an easy way to deny your claim and you will be wasting the money you pay on your insurance premium.
