Three Signs That It's Time To Replace Your Windows

Window replacement time

Windows can last a long time, but they certainly won't last forever. Window replacement is one of the most vital services that a home remodeling company can offer. In fact, replacement windows expertly installed by a home remodeling professional will make your home look and feel better than it has in years!

Your windows will always give you a sign that it's time to move on. Below, read more about the top three signs you'll see when it's time to replace your windows.

You're Feeling A Draft

Windows help keep your home insulated and comfortable year-round. If it's cold out, and you keep feeling a breeze or a draft when you sit by your window, that's an issue that needs to be fixed.

Some folks try to avoid the cost of replacing a window right away by trying to seal the source of the draft leak, but that's not effective in the long run. The only way to completely solve the issue is to schedule our windows & doors service and have your drafty window replaced today.

There Are Signs Of Rot In The Sill

Like most other exterior surfaces, window sills are not resistant to the ravages of extreme weather. After time, exposure to rain, snow, sleet, and hail can really wear down your window sills. Eventually, they begin to rot out, and that can spell disaster for both your window and your house.

If you notice that your window sills are showing signs of rot and extreme wear - don't delay, call us today. You're in immediate need of replacement windows. Holding off on ordering replacement windows when you notice signs of sill rot can cause costlier headaches in the long run.

Your Windows Can No Longer Open Or Close

A window that has lost its function is a serious problem. If you open a window one day and then suddenly notice that it won't close, that window likely needs to be replaced.

Not replacing a window that can't function opens your home to the elements, driving up energy costs and potentially causing water damage. Likewise, if a window won't open, this can have the same effect on energy costs and hints at a bigger problem.
