PVC Care

  • Clean PVC with a warm water and mild soap solution, avoiding caustic or abrasive cleaners that may damage the finish and cause deterioration and discoloration.
  • Rinse with clean water after cleaning to remove any remaining soap residue.
  • Clean channels, tracks, and drain holes on sliding windows or doors at least once a year (preferably twice) to prevent excessive wear and tear from dust and dirt accumulation.
  • Lubricate tracks with silicone-based sprays to ensure smooth sliding.

Screen Maintenance

  • Carefully remove screens by pushing towards arrow stickers on the corners to avoid breakage, as improper removal is not covered by warranty.
  • Lay the screen flat and vacuum it or soak it with a mild soapy solution, then wipe it clean with a soft cloth or brush.
  • Avoid damaging the screen mesh or aluminum frame when removing existing screens.

Glass Cleaning

  1. Clean glass with a warm water and mild soap solution or a vinegar-based solution, avoiding ammonia or alcohol-based cleaners.
  2. Use a lint-free cloth and wipe in circular motions for streak-free results.
  3. Wash glass while not in direct sunlight to prevent premature drying of the cleaning solution.
  4. Avoid using scrapers and blades on glass.

Hardware Care

The hardware comes pre-lubricated; if necessary, use petroleum jelly, automotive grease, or lithium grease for optimal performance.

Western Windows came highly recommended to us from one of their former customers. We still shopped around and got a few quotes from other companies. Although Western Windows were not the lowest price, it was evident their product is superior. We also liked the fact they are a family run business and their products are built locally in Calgary. But what really sets Western Windows apart from the other companies is their customer service. From their receptionists, to installers, to the owners of the company, their customer service is outstanding. We replaced ten windows and one sliding patio door. From the time of our initial contact, to the completion of the installation, this has been an easy, and pleasant experience. Thank you, Jeremy, and everyone at Western Windows! We highly recommend your company. Wendy and Steve

We are incredibly pleased with the customer service, responsiveness and quality workmanship that Western Windows has provided. Jeremy and the install team were phenomenal. Many companies can learn what impeccable customer service is about from these folks. They replaced our back door, frame and windows. Amazing job. We will use them for future projects and recommend to others.
