Is It Time to Replace Your Windows?
If you are like most homeowners, you may hardly ever think about the quality of your home’s windows until you have difficulty opening them or notice that your utility bill is higher than your neighbors
But ignoring your home’s windows could be a costly mistake. Here are some signs that it may be time to replace your windows.
It may be time for new windows if they are leaking.
Do you have a small puddle in front of your window after it rains? Even if you can quickly clean up the mess, this leak can cause more severe issues that aren’t easily seen. A leaky window can create a decaying window frame. A leaky window can cause a mold problem in your home. And if unnoticed, a leaky window can cause damage to your floor or wall.
It may be time for new windows if you see condensation between the panes of glass.
It’s annoying to have your view blocked by condensation on your window. But besides being annoying, condensation between panes of glass can also be a sign that the seals on your windows have failed. Unfortunately, once the seals fail your windows lose the gas that made them energy efficient as well.
It may be time for your new windows if they are drafty.
Do you feel a breeze every time you stand in front of your closed window? Are your heating and cooling bills higher than your neighbors’ bills? This could be another sign that it is time to replace your windows.
