If you are reading this article chances are that you have noticed something about your windows that annoys or disappoints you. Having said that, you may not be sure whether it is time to replace your old windows or whether they can be repaired and enhanced.
That is why we have written this article. With this article we’ll share with you five reasons that it may be time to replace your old windows – 5 times when repairs may not be enough.
Are Your Windows Starting to Look Old and Tired?
If your windows are old and tired, this may be reason enough to change them. Noticeable changes in appearance could be a sign of something else. It could be a sign of significant damage and deterioration. – everything from physical damage to rot. If the windows haven’t been maintained properly in the past it’s a sign that you may need to replace them and put more effort into maintaining them in the future.
Do Your Windows Suit the Way You Use Your House?
Maybe you are engaging in some renovations or interior redecoration. If you are changing the way that you use your house it may be time to change your windows to some that now better suit your lifestyle – especially if you like to entertain at home.
Are Your Windows Energy Efficient?
With rising energy costs it is becoming increasingly expensive to both heat and cool your house. If you have old windows they could be draughty (or single paned.) This means that these windows are unlikely to be energy efficient. They will allow heat to escape in winter, and allow heat in during the summer. Replacement windows will stop this heat transfer and mean that your house will be warmer in winter and cooler in summer.
Do Your Windows Stop Noise Pollution?
If you live in a busy part of town or near a major thoroughfare you may want to change your windows, especially if they are single pane glass windows. Double glazed windows help reduce noise pollution significantly and this means that outside noise stays outside – where it belongs.
Do Your Windows Work Effectively?
The final reason we’ll share in your article that might mean it’s a good time to replace your old windows is just paying attention to whether they work effectively. Is it a struggle to open your window? Do they get jammed? Is it a struggle to close your window after you have opened it? If they just aren’t working effectively, this could be a good sign that they have outlived their usefulness.
