Windows are not just windows. They are a part of someone’s home and life.
They let in light, air, and freshness.
They give home owners joy, beauty, and peace of mind.
Windows give a house character, personality, color.
That’s why we take what we do here at Renewal by Andersen of San Antonio very seriously. It’s not just a house we are updating with new windows, it’s someone’s home we are bringing back to life.
Installing windows is important. We really want to take care of our clients and their homes like they are our own. And we want you to be treated with respect and love each step of the way.
It’s our goal – to serve with love and excellence. To change lives by make homes more beautiful.
Halloween is a time for all things scary. But there is one thing you do not want to be frightened by – the windows on your home! Windows play a critical role in energy efficiency, regulating indoor temperatures, reducing noise, and keeping moisture outside. If you have scary windows, you might be haunted by high energy bills, water leaks, and even creepy creaking sounds.
But how do you know when it’s time to bite the bullet and replace your old windows?
Here are 6 signs that the windows on your home are scary and due for an upgrade:
1. Unable to open and close
You have probably experienced the frustration of rushing to your windows one cool fall morning to let the lovely breeze in the house, only to discover that your windows no longer open. This can be caused by a number of factors, such as the foundation shifting, the frame deteriorating and sticking due to heat, or actually being painted shut. On the other hand, you may have tried to close your windows as tight as possible to prevent a cold winter draft or dust cloud from seeping in and become frustrated that the frame doesn’t seal completely closed anymore. These issues are driving up your monthly energy bill, as well as eliminating an emergency escape route, and replacing them with new windows that are custom-built to fit the opening will not only save you money every month but also prevent a lot of frustration.
When the seal on the glass panes of a double-pane window fails, air and moisture enter the window and cause the irritating fog that blocks your view and is impossible to clean off. Sometimes this problem can be solved by simply having the seal fixed, but if the bigger issue is that the window frames themselves have warped, you will continue to experience seal failure time and time again. Replacement windows that are designed with a high quality seal and built for each window opening will eliminate your foggy window pane problems.
3. Faded carpet, drapes, and upholstery
The UV rays of the sun that enter through your windows will damage and fade your interior fabrics over time, particularly in rooms that face south or west and experience the harshest temperatures of the day. Replacing your old windows with new ones that have low-E glass will reflect the harmful rays and just allow the natural light indoors.
If the window sashes don’t fully close or have proper caulking around the frame, moisture can collect on the windowsill and begin to damage the wall around the window. Water damage that penetrates into the house frame can potentially lead to significant repairs that would cost thousands of dollars. A much more cost-effective solution is to prevent the water damage in the first place with replacement windows that seal properly.
5. Extreme temperatures inside and high energy bills
Most of us have felt the pain of paying for high heating and cooling bills, but with our harsh climate, our two choices are to either suffer extreme temperatures indoors or empty our wallets to keep the indoors comfortable. The good news is that replacement windows can make a dramatic impact on both the interior temperature and your monthly energy bills by helping keep the very hot or cold air outside.
The aesthetics of your windows are important, too, and shouldn’t be neglected. It’s a great thing to enjoy the way your home looks, because it is your haven. If you are tired of outdated and deteriorating window frames, it may be time to treat your home to a brand new look. Additionally, this will add significant value to your home, should you wish to sell it in the future.
After inspecting your windows for these 6 signs of needing replacement, how do they measure up? Are they passing with flying colors, falling slightly under par, or are they scary as can be? Is it time to get information on the best replacement option? Whatever your needs are, it’s important to be well-educated so that you can make the right decision at the right time. If you have any further questions about windows, feel free to contact us directly so we can answer them for you; we’d love to help you any way we can.
