When Do You Need to Replace Your Windows?

At some point in every home owner’s life they will find themselves in the precarious position of needing to acquire windows. You may have been fortunate enough to build new and have brand new and warrantied windows for your first home but not everyone is in this situation. Even when you purchase a new house with new windows that are warrantied they will eventually need to be replaced over time.

How do you know that you need new windows? There are several indicators that new windows are going to be necessary for your residence. Are you noticing an increase in your heating or cooling bills? Air often escapes through windows that are old, thin or with bad seals. Is water seeping in through your windows? Water damage is a costly repair and can cause a large amount of renovation work if left untreated. Windows that do not seal properly can allow seepage that can run down your walls and cause mold. If you notice that your windows are allowing water into your home, you will need to have them looked at immediately. Is ice building up inside your windows during the winter months? Condensation is typically the culprit of this build up but faulty seals and bad storm windows can be a cause of ice.
