Help! My window won't close

Home Improvement
A window that doesn’t function as it is supposed to can be a real hassle. Most of the time, the issue tends to be windows that don’t open all the way (or at all). For various reasons, the frame can get stuck and remain lodged in place. On the contrary, a far worse problem, especially for those who live in hot and cold climates, is a window that refuses to shut completely. You can probably imagine what kind of effect this has on one’s utility bills; having an open window is equivalent to flushing money down the drain when you’re trying to heat or cool your house.

As well, if you don’t have a screen or some type of makeshift filter, dirt, dust and bugs will be able to come inside your home. There are a few things you can do to fix a window that won’t shut fully. If the problem is bad enough, however, and the window is beyond repair, you may need to buy a replacement.

How to fix a window that won’t close

• Check to see if anything is obstructing the frame. This could be anything from a screw or a bent track, which means it could either be a simple fix or a more time-consuming job. If the track is bent, you may be able to manually correct it with pliers, but proceed with caution. In order to move up and down freely, the track has to be aligned just right.

• Lubricate the track with WD40 spray; sometimes all it takes is a little lubrication to get the window working properly again. Over time, dirt and grime can cause interference and make the window stick. With that in mind, be sure to wipe down and thoroughly clean the entire frame before applying the lubricant, as this will keep the problem from re-occurring in the future.

• Inspect/replace the latch; it could very well be the fact that the frame and track are in perfect condition, with the culprit being the locking mechanism. No window will seal fully unless it is latched. If yours is sticking or not locking into place, replace it with new hardware.

• Is the window balanced; there are many ways a window can get off-center, but in most cases this is due to a faulty (or lack thereof) counterweight. This can make cause one side to angle upward and collide with the track, thus preventing it from shutting.

• Think about windows replacement; if the window is in poor shape and still won’t close even after you have tried everything else, buy a new one. It should be noted that this option should not always be a last resort. If you have the money to spend, energy-efficient models are worth buying. Remember, just because the windows in your home close doesn’t mean they aren’t leaking air. Those being said, check out Clera Windows and Doors if you’re thinking about buying new. They are a premiere windows replacement firm in Kingston and are known for their attention to detail and customer service.
