Maintenance

Having purchased your new Broxwood timber and alu-clad windows and doors, you can relax in the knowledge that you have safely invested in robust, top quality products which will last a lifetime or more.

Our products are specified to offer the ultimate protection. They been specifically designed and built to survive the harsh Norwegian climate and so naturally come with a reassuring warranties of up to 30 years.

To ensure your windows and doors continue to perform at optimum levels, please follow these simple recommendations:

  • Alu-clad window and door surfaces offer a virtually maintenance-free option. Frames may simply be wiped down with a damp cloth as required.
  • For timber windows and doors, surface treatment must be maintained periodically most frequently on south-facing facades.
  • Paint and stain must not be applied to weather strips, glazing seals or ironmongery. This will cause the weather strips to become hard and brittle, and therefore no longer weatherproof.
  • Allow adequate time for complete drying after site painting or staining and before closing the windows and doors.
  • Cleaning and a light dusting of talc, or similar, is good for the weather seals.
  • Hardware should occasionally be given a light oiling or lubrication.
  • Friction stays should be tightened and operation checked when necessary.
