Replacing windows in your home is a big investment, and not one that many homeowners take lightly. If you’re on the fence about residential glass window replacement, here are a few signs that getting new windows can be a wise move.
Your Windows Are Drafty
Drafts not only make you and your family uncomfortable, they also affect your utility bills. Your heating system needs to work harder to maintain your chosen temperature, and that costs you more money. Because your exterior window frames are exposed to the elements, they can deteriorate faster than you realize, cracking or warping in response to water, wind and even pests.
Your Windows Are Old
The typical lifespan of your home’s windows is generally 20 years. If it’s been significantly longer than that since they were installed, it may be time to get new ones. Although the glass may seem okay, the seals often deteriorate and can leave your windows fogged between the panes. That moisture may also lead to mold, a serious health concern.
Cracked Window Glass
A small crack may seem pretty insignificant but it can affect the integrity of your window. It allows moisture to pass through and makes the window weaker in response to physical stress like opening or closing it. Replacement is the safest option to protect your home and your family.
