Signs That It’s Time to Replace Your Windows
• Visible damage: This may be obvious, like a cracked pane. Sometimes, though, it’s the frame that deteriorates. Wood, metal and plastic frames are all subject to damage and failure.
• Detectable drafts: When you walk past a window and feel a draft, you know it’s time for replacements.
• Sticking: Windows should slide open and closed smoothly. If yours are sticking, rattling and getting hung-up, it’s time for replacements.
The Importance of Replacing Your Windows
Windows add to the appearance of your home and provide light and air, but they also have an important security function. If your window frames have deteriorated, they may make the entire window loose, or they may not hold the lock securely. This makes your home less secure. This is also true of windows that get stuck partially open. When your windows get stuck closed, you lose that exit in an emergency.
Drafty windows make your home uncomfortable and lead to higher utility bills. New, energy-efficient replacements stop drafts and have the added bonus of cutting the noise from outside.
