Why Are My Windows Stuck & How Do I Fix Them?

Why Are My Windows Stuck & How Do I Fix Them?

Have you gotten used to that stuck window that doesn’t open anymore or is especially difficult to operate? Would you prefer windows that operate as they’re supposed to, whether they’re double-hung windows that move up and down or sliding windows that open side to side? In some cases, there are simple solutions.

Keep Your Windows Clean

One of the main culprits for windows that stick is dirt and grime in the tracks that increase friction. This can be remedied by cleaning out the tracks and wiping them with a household cleaner. You also might want to look for any dried paint in the tracks and scrape it out.

Lubricate the Tracks

Your windows might be difficult to open and close because structural settling has tightened the frame around the windows. In this case, your best bet is to lubricate the tracks with wax for wooden windows or a silicone lubricant for other types.

However, if your windows are on the older side, there’s a chance that they’re becoming harder to operate because the sashes are starting to bow. In these cases, the only way you’re truly going to correct the problem is to remove them, reframe the opening, and install entirely new windows.

Still Stuck?

If you’re coming to grips with the fact that you’re constantly trying to open stuck windows because they are simply past their prime, NEWPRO can provide the high-performance replacement windows your home needs. We offer three window lines that are engineered to provide outstanding protection from the elements and energy efficiency. They’re also easy on the eyes and can provide a much-needed boost to your home’s curb appeal.

Window Replacement Project

Quality of the windows was superior to the others we looked at. Now, our windows tilt in, so it's going to be much easier to clean them.

Pool House Doors Project

Cold stays out in the winter. Cold stays in during the summer.

The best thing I love is the craftsmanship from NEWPRO. You'd never know we had the old door cut out because it was rotted from the New England weather.
