Is It Time To Replace Your Windows?

Aug 30, 2010

Are you thinking about new vinyl replacement windows, but are confused about whether to buy just yet? Consider these points:

  • Drafts- Do your curtains blow in the breeze?  If you can physically feel the air coming in through your windows, then your weather stripping may be gone.  Old windows are the most common energy thief in homes today.  It’s likely time to take action.
  • Fogged Glass – If you’re windows are fogged between the panes of glass, then you may be facing seal failure.  Over time, the seals between the panes break down and allow moisture to enter.  However, don’t confuse condensation on the interior or exterior of the window with seal failure.  Make certain that the issue lies between the glass panes.
  • Inoperable Windows – Will your window stay open by itself?  If a prop is necessary to keep your windows open, then you have an immediate safety hazard.  The unit has failed and requires replacement.
  • Unsightly Appearance- Don’t live in an ugly house.  If you are unhappy with the appearance of your windows, especially if they show signs of deterioration, then  they should be replaced.
