When to replace windows on your home
Homeowners can replace their windows for any reason and at any time they choose, but the following scenarios indicate moments when replacement is a particularly good idea:
- Poor performance — opening and closing is a difficult task; air leaks in, out or around the window; condensation or fogging occurs on or between glass panes; windows are painted or nailed shut and virtually impossible to open
- Looks — chipping, deterioration or water stains of the window or the area around the window (inside or out) is a sure sign; outdated design or style that doesn’t blend well with the rest of the home
- Effort — cleaning is a major hassle and another chore to be avoided; replacement parts are hard to find or even non-existent
If any of the above is familiar, this is a sign that it’s time for a window replacement. Remember that the cost of the over all windows will be an investment into your future savings.
