Replacing your windows is a large home improvement project with noticeable results. New windows can make your home more energy efficient, increase value, and improve curb appeal. Luckily, our windows have aesthetic appeal and are incredibly functional. If your windows are showing signs of wear and tear, it may be time for replacement.
Signs It’s Time for New Windows
Many homeowners don’t know the signs of failing windows. Often, if water isn’t pouring through the windows, they think the windows are fine. The reality is much different. Look for signs of failing windows to find out if yours need replacing.
If you have water or condensation between the panes of glass in your windows, the seal is broken. There should never be moisture between the panes. Contact a professional to see if your windows need repair or replacement.
Difficult to Use
Older windows often become difficult to open. Reasons for this include grime buildup, excess dirt, and house settling. When this is a problem, you can no longer open the windows for fresh air. After a certain point, there’s no repairing these problems. Your windows will most likely need to be replaced.
Homes that become increasingly drafty often require window replacements. Windows with broken seals or old glass make it more difficult to insulate a home. If you notice a significant drop or increase in temperature near your windows, you could benefit greatly from replacements.
Are you paying more than your neighbors for your energy costs? If your energy bills are significantly higher than your neighbors, it may be due to failing windows. New energy efficient window models can drastically reduce energy costs. Installation costs will pay for themselves with the amount of money saved from bills.
Replacing a Home’s Windows
When replacing the windows in your home, be sure you choose energy efficient varieties that match the style of your home. If you have a historic home or uniquely styled home, be sure the new windows match without detracting from the curb appeal. We offer windows in a variety of options and can also customize color choices.
