WeatherGard Maintenance Guide

The chief motivation for WeatherGard’s commitment to producing stronger, heavier, commercial grade residential replacement windows is a desire to offer a product that lasts like a window should—the way American windows made 80 or 90 years ago have lasted. There’s a sharp contrast between this approach, and that of our competitors, who sell temporary, disposable replacements. Our window isn’t meant to be replaced, it’s designed to be maintained.
