What You Can Do to Fix Your Broken Window Locks

To keep your home secure throughout the day and night, it’s important that your windows are locked securely to prevent them from being opened from the outside. However, if your windows are unable to lock or if the locks are broken, you may be unable to secure each window’s sash. Here are some things you can do to get your replacement windows to lock.


  • Sashes are Not Fully Closed

A common reason why replacement windows don’t lock is because the upper and lower sashes are not fully in the closed position. Try pushing each sash as far as it will go in the closed position, and then try to lock it again. In some instances, you may need two people to push on separate sashes to get the lock’s latches to line up.

  • Sashes are Not Aligned Correctly

A more serious issue is that your window sashes are not properly aligned. This is a common problem in older windows that suffer from extreme wear or poor maintenance, but it could also occur because of thermal expansion and contraction. Push the sashes firmly into the channels that hold them in place to make sure they line up straight.

  • Balance Shoe is Disengaged

The balance shoe is a part of the window frame that helps to move the window sash up and down in the frame. These components can sometimes get stuck, making it difficult to open or close your window properly. To fix this, remove your window sash and raise the balance shoes a few inches using a flat head screw driver. Once they’re locked into a new position, reinsert the sash and try moving the sash again.

Make the Right First Impression with a Beautiful New Entry Door

If you’re looking for a way to really bring some life to your home’s entryway, a new replacement entry door is an excellent option. Upgrading your entry door will add a new focal point to your home’s exterior, giving your home the curb appeal you’ve been looking for. Let’s look at some of the features and factors to consider when choosing a great new entry door.


Entry doors come in a wide variety of shapes, styles, and sizes, but the material you choose is one of the most important features of the door. Replacement doors come in a number of different materials, but the two most popular are wood and steel. Wood is a traditional door material and is unmatched in its elegance, versatility, and beauty. Steel doors, on the other hand, can give you a slightly modern twist on classic styles and designs, plus the added benefit of low maintenance and enhanced durability.

Another way to make a great first impression with your entry door is by using high-quality hardware. Choosing the right door handles, locks, door viewers, and knockers will bring out the texture and color of your door, making its design look cohesive and deliberate. Plus, high-quality hardware also gives you the added benefit of improved security and safety.

But some of the best features to look for in a door are the things you can’t see. For example, many of Window World’s replacement entry doors come with a foam core designed to give your door that extra insulation boost. This helps to reduce drafts, enhance home comfort, and improve home energy efficiency. Other features include reinforced door jambs, 90-minute fire ratings, and the best warranties available in Orlando.

Keep Your Windows to the World Clear with these Great Tips

Dirty windows are unsightly from the outside, unpleasant to look through, and more prone to the buildup of debris and potentially hazardous bacteria than clean windows are. If you would like to learn how to keep your windows sparkling clean with little effort, follow these tips:

WW Graphics 050

Choose Low-Maintenance Windows

Some windows are simply easier to keep clean than others. Speak with a window installation expert about installing windows that have one or more of the following qualities:

  • Beveled Exterior Mainframe: Windows with right-angled corners collect more dust and debris than windows with beveled exterior mainframes.
  • Sloped Windowsill or Full Capture Windowsill: A sloped windowsill forces water to drain right off of the sill, and full capture sills protect windows from the filtration of water and air.
  • Double Barrier-Fin Weatherstripping: With double barrier-fin weatherstripping, you can prevent dirt buildup from rapidly accumulating on your home’s windows.

Use an Appropriate Cleanser

Choose a cleanser designed specifically for glass, because all-purpose cleaners are not very effective when it comes to cleaning windows. Ask your window installation professional to recommend a specific type of cleanser, and wash your windows with it at least once a month. To avoid dust and dirt buildup in those hard-to-reach corners, use an old toothbrush or cotton balls to access and clean them.

Prevent the Buildup of Dirt

To avoid having to replace your windows more often than necessary, keep your barbecue grill at least five feet away from any of your home’s windows or sliding glass doors. Likewise, you should keep candles at a distance of several feet from windows to avoid dirtying them with smoke residue.

If your Orlando home’s current windows do not maintain a consistent level of cleanliness, speak with a window installation professional about replacing them with windows that do. To find out more about types of windows that are designed to deter the accumulation of dust, dirt, and dirty water, call Window World at (321) 282-6200.

Can New Siding Help Improve My Home's Energy Efficiency?

When people think of siding, they tend to think of the exterior protection that it provides for their homes. However, siding is also an insulating material that can promote a comfortable indoor environment and lead to substantial energy savings over time. To find out more about the ways in which Window World Prodigy® and Comfort World insulated siding systems can reduce your carbon footprint and keep your utility bills to a minimum, continue reading this article.

Using Another Form of Home Insulation

Insulated siding can fortify your home’s existing wall insulation, and in some cases, even serve as a substitute for it. The energy-conscious home building movement has led to the development of vinyl siding with foam insulation one or more inches thick. Speak with a window and siding installation professional to determine what type of energy-efficient siding will best serve your home’s insulation needs.

Bridging the Thermal Gap

Standard wall insulation is placed between wall studs, through which a significant degree of heat inevitably escapes. When you cover your home’s exterior with insulated siding, you are effectively blanketing your home. Less warmth will escape during the wintertime, and less heat will penetrate through to your home’s interior during the summer.

Cutting Energy Costs Without Sacrificing Beauty

The state-of-the-art Window World Prodigy® and Comfort World insulated wall vinyl systems are available in a wide range of colors, profiles, and textures. Regardless of the architectural style of your house, there is an energy-saving insulated siding type that will suit it. This means that the beauty of your home will be left intact while your carbon footprint and energy bills are reduced.

If you are a central Florida resident who would like to make your Orlando-area home a more comfortable place to live, contact Window World today. Call (321) 282-6200 to find out how our Window World Prodigy® and Comfort World vinyl siding systems can help you save money and preserve the environment!
