The outside of the door should be painted with a water based microporous paint at least every three years, or if the surface is damaged.
Care of internal window frames
Washing your windows
Window labels or other stickers on windows can be removed by softening them in water. Residues from stickers or other labels
can be removed using ceramic hob cleaner, but be gentle.
For windows in more exposed locations, particularly coastal locations (within 5 miles), expect to lubricate fittings more frequently and if conditions are particulalry extreme, fittings may need to be replaced after a few years. In addition, make sure any glide rails stay dirt free to ensure smooth operation.
