Your windows are expected to last a long time. Yet, there will come a time when they will begin showing signs that mean that you need to replace them, including the following four signs.
1. Windows Are Already Damaged
Most people will just repair broken glass or cracked weatherstripping. But, there may be some underlying issues that could mean that the windows are no longer functioning as they should be. Consider replacing them if there is air infiltration (also known as drafts) or you’re having difficulty opening or closing them.
2. Your Energy Costs Remain High
Windows are supposed to ensure energy efficiency by keeping your home cool during summer and warm during winter. However, if you notice a spike in your energy consumption, you might want to consider window replacement.
3. You Want to Remodel Your Home
Another sign that your windows are due to be replaced is if the overall appearance of them is no longer contributing to your home’s curb appeal. When your home needs to be remodeled or updated, you might also want to change to a new window type to replace your current one.
4. Your Home Was Damaged by a Severe Storm
The New York area is no stranger to severe storms that can damage the home, especially windows. If you’re windows are damaged, you should get them replaced. You might also be entitled to money from your insurance company for the project.
