What to Ask During a Quick Safety Window Check

Did you know that your windows play a crucial role in home safety and security? That’s one of the reasons there are local codes in place requiring some windows to be of a specific height and size. This way, in case of emergencies, you and your family can use them to exit your home quickly and safely. And if you’re planning to perform a quick window safety check–a must if you have active children–Renewal by Andersen® of Southwest Missouri, the premier home window replacement company, suggests you ask these questions first.

What to Ask During a Quick Safety Window Check

1. Should you keep your windows open when children are around? It’s a better idea to keep them closed and locked instead. If you need to open some windows for ventilation, choose those that are harder to reach. You should also enforce ground rules about keeping the children’s play area away from windows and patio doors.

2. Do your windows operate properly? Safety is the utmost priority during emergencies. You should never nail or paint your windows shut so you can use them for egress. And if some units in your home are exactly that, it might be time to invest in professional window replacement service from Renewal by Andersen® of Southwest Missouri. Our range of high-quality windows are designed for smooth and worry-free operation, and come with durable locking systems to keep them secure when closed.

3. Are there furniture pushed against the windows? You’ll want to keep large items, such as furniture, away from windows so small children can’t use them as a climbing aid.

4. Do you have window unit air conditioners in bedrooms? Avoid installing air conditioners in window openings because they can impede a quick exit via the window. In fact, every sleeping area should have at least one functional in sleeping and living areas.

When in need of high-quality replacement windows that meets every safety and rescue requirement, look no further than Renewal by Andersen® of Southwest Missouri.

"I just bought my first house. My patio sliding door was rotten. So, I needed it to replace it. Renewal by Anderson of Southern Missouri listened to what I wanted and delivered it. They did a fantastic job of installing and cleaning up afterwards. They did it even in freezing rain that day I was scheduled to have it replaced. They even had a follow-up to check things out and do the touch ups. I'm amazed at there work. Great job Renewal by Anderson."

"On Feb 1,2024 my husband and I selected Renewel by Andersen for windows for our entire house. It made our house more beautiful with the picture windows. Made the outside more attractive, and on the inside. We did 14 windows. We had 4 men come to do the job in 1 day And they were very friendly, efficient,fast and cleaned up inside and outside perfectly. And most importantly we noticed the heating furnace runs less,therefore saving us money on our gas bill. We live in SW Missouri. We recommend anyone who wants to replace windows in their home to pick Renewal by Andersen. Sincerely, Darius and Nancy Durman"
