At some point in time, old windows will reach the end of their service life and will need to be replaced. But how can you be sure that time has come? In today’s post, we discuss the signs that mean it’s time for window replacement.
1. The frames are warped and wood materials are rotted. Take a look at your old windows to see if the framing material is showing signs of warping. If so, chances are, water has seeped into the exposed wood and caused it to swell, essentially speeding up the deterioration and rotting process of the material. A repair can only do so much, so it’s better replace the old, failing units.
2. Your energy bills are suspiciously high. Features like weatherstripping and double glazing are applied to windows so they remain airtight and to block outdoor heat. If these components fail, your energy bills will spike as your HVAC system works overtime to compensate. To avoid spending more than you should, replace your old, drafty windows with new energy-efficient double hung or casement windows.
3. You want to update your home. With the innovations in window technology, you can say goodbye to outdated single-pane windows by refurbishing your home with specialty windows. To achieve a seamless indoor-outdoor experience, installing sliding windows is your best option. If you want to preserve a farmhouse-style home, then you can choose large windows with grilles mulled together instead.
