Why is there a section on maintenance tips?

A basic vinyl window that does not open is maintenance free. As soon as you have an operating portion to that window you introduce some maintenance. Hinges and balances must be clean and lubricated to ensure that the window operates as intended. If a window becomes difficult to operate or close it is usually because this basic maintenance has not been completed. You can find more information and specific maintenance instruction in our downloads section under the TIPS tab.
