Signs That You Need Replacement Windows

Windows tend to be one of the last thing homeowners consider when they think about necessary home maintenance and care. It's easy to sit in your living room, looking out into your front yard, not thinking of the pieces of glass that separate us from the outdoors. Yet, replacement windows become important over time, as you may take your home's windows for granted. Read through these tips to determine if it's the appropriate time to opt for new home ct replacement windows. 

Paint Pealing & Overall Poor Appearance

The appearance and general condition of your home’s windows is one of the first things that you should look for and one of the most obvious signs that new replacement windows are needed. Observe your windows, and look for chipping, deterioration, or water stains on or around the exterior and interior of the window. Peeling paint is a hint as well, since it is caused by moisture traveling through windows, making the frame to expand or contract.

All Of Your Home's Windows Use Single-Pane Glass

This is typically only a problem for older homes, since modern homes are constructed with double-pane windows. However, if you find yourself in a home with single pane windows, you will want to replace them before the cooler winter weather. Single-pane glass windows are awful for energy efficiency. They allow heat to escape your home more freely than double-pane windows. Also, old single-pane windows are much more likely to freeze open or shut and can develop frost on theinside of the window.

Your Windows Are Leaking Or Allowing Too Much Condensation

Water infiltration can be a pain for homeowners, especially considering that it can severely damage your home's interior over time. So, if you are noticing that your windows are prone to condensation or water leaks, it's a clear sign that you may need replacement windows. Leaking windows can eventually lead to mold and mildew growth, so it's important to speak to a contractor as soon as possible, if you ever notice any collection of water in or around your home's windows.

Your Windows Are Susceptible To Drafts

In order to test if your window is drafty, wave a lit candle around the edges of your windows. If the flame flickers, your windows are drafty, meaning that cool air is leaving your home and hot air is entering.You may also hear a lot of outside notice when your window is no longer properly sealed or insulated (especially if you live on a busy street). If your home's old windows can no longer offer adequate protection against exterior noise, it's time to replace them.
