Is It Time to Replace Your Windows?

It’s not always easy to tell when a window needs to be replaced. Whether they are damaged, ineffective or you simply want an upgrade, new windows are a great way to improve the style and functionality of your home. Below, we explore some scenarios where a window replacement may be necessary or beneficial. 

Replacing or Repairing a Damaged Window 

You can sometimes repair a window if there is a minor problem, such as worn weatherstripping or damaged hardware. But in many situations, replacing the windows is a much better option. Some signs that a window should be replaced include:  

  • Warped window frame or sash 
  • Fogging and condensation build up between glass layers 
  • Draftiness even when windows are closed 
  • Cracks in the glass 
  • Soft, chipped or water damaged window frames 
  • Windows stick when opening or closing them. 

Even if your windows are still operable, it’s a good idea to replace them if there are issues as it can impact the comfort and energy efficiency of your home. 

Replacing Windows Can Save Costs 

Windows play an important role in the thermal efficiency of your home. Older windows tend to be thinner, meaning more heat escapes during winter and enters the home during summer. Drafty windows can increase your energy bills by ten to thirty per cent. Replacing your windows with double glazed, aluminium windows can reduce your heating and cooling bills as well as helping to block out noise. 

Add Value to Your Home 

If you’re considering selling your property in the future, it’s worth investing in quality windows that improve the aesthetics of the home, improve energy efficiency and reduce noise. Windows are one of the most prominent features of a home. If they look worn, your house will too. Faded colours and antiquated-looking windows detract from the curb appeal of your home. Ensure your windows contribute to the overall vision or design theme of your home. 

Update Features 

If you’re replacing your windows, you also have the opportunity to change the type of window you have. For example, from a fixed sash to a window that opens. This helps you create a more comfortable interior and improve airflow throughout your home. You could also install larger windows to increase a room’s natural light, which has health benefits in addition to improving the style. Daylit environments increase productivity and comfort as well as helping to regulate your circadian rhythms for better sleep.
