In this post, we’ll talk about the signs your windows are ready for replacement and benefits and options when it comes to new windows.
There are many reasons why you may want to replace your old windows. They offer smoother operation, lower maintenance, energy savings, fewer drafts and easier cleaning. However, it can be expensive to replace your windows so here’s what you need to know before you make the investment.
Do your windows feel drafty? Do they fog up? Do they stick or refuse to stay open? Often you can repair and restore old windows if you’re willing to set aside
the time. With that being said there are situations where repair is not worth your time or the expense.
- Rot: If you have rotting wood it’s tough to stop unless you commit yourself to replacing all of it and then you will need to maintain it regularly.
- Fogged double-pane glass. Once fogging occurs between the glass panes it can’t be fixed. Replacing the glass is the only solution, which can be very expensive. Consider replacing the window instead.
- Replacement hardware. You may be able to get hard-to-find parts from online suppliers but often new windows are the only option.
Windows are one of the more prominent features of a home and can change the way your home feels and looks. The design of your window should be very important to you when selecting new windows. The right windows can add value to your home and choosing the wrong windows will actually detract from that value. The overall look of a home or space should be a key factor in the window selection process.
