While your home may not be able to speak to you, it can provide clear signs when something is not right. This is especially true with your home’s windows. They may not last forever, but correctly installed and well-maintained windows could last for 20 to 30 years or even longer.
At WMGB Home Improvement, we want our clients to be fully aware of what’s going on with their windows before they decide to get replacement windows. Here are signs that you need new windows.
They’re Totally Damaged or Warped
Sometimes, repairs won’t do anything to save your windows. When the problem is minor, such as hardware failure, then repair might be the best choice.
But, replacing a damaged egress window, for example, is almost always the preferred choice over a repair. As soon as your windows start having irreparable concerns, especially those that make them difficult to operate, then it’s time to replace them.
They Make Your Home Look Bad
Your windows are one of your home’s most noteworthy features. Windows that look deteriorated make the entire house appear the same way, too.
Always check to see if the window material is warping or if the entire window detracts from the curb appeal of your property. If that is the case, then It’s time to consider vinyl replacement windows.
Your Home Is Due for Renovation
Sometimes, houses just need a total makeover. Perhaps, you have considered updating your home to a modern look, and you need a new set of windows to match the new design. Old windows might not work with the new home decor, so that’s a sure sign that it’s time for a replacement.
The windows on your home will eventually wear out and need to be replaced. Replacing your windows can also dramatically improve your home’s energy efficiency.
