If you have a window with a small issue such as a need for new weatherstripping or hardware you can get away with a simple repair. However, full replacement of a damaged, warped or broken window sash or frame is usually the better choice. Some signs that total replacement is necessary can be foggy windows, drafty windows, windows that stick when trying to open or close, windows that refuse to stay open.If your windows are showing these signs it is time for a full replacement.
Windows can allow some heat into your home in the winter by allowing sunlight in. Drafty windows, however, can cause your energy bills o be up to 25% higher, according to Energy.gov. Replace windows that are old with new energy-efficient windows can cut down on your monthly cost. In addition, if you are considering selling your home, new windows and the savings on energy bills can be a huge selling point.
Windows are an extremely visible part of your home. If your windows look worn, the rest of your house does too.Pay attention to fading color, warping materials, or old screens or storm windows.
When replacing windows it may be a good idea to change the type of window. If you currently have a fixed sash, you may want to replace it with a window that opens. This can increase comfort and airflow throughout your home. It may also be a good idea to install larger windows which will increase a room’s natural light.
The wrong window can change the look of a historic home and can compromise its integrity. If you are renovating such a home be sure the window company can handle historic window replacement.
