4 Signs That You Need Replacement Windows

As you prepare your home for summer, you might not have time to think about replacement windows. Condensation could be a sign you need replacement windows.

As you prepare your home for summer, you might not have time to think about replacement windows. Your list for spring cleaning is growing by the day, and it seems like every week a new item appears on it that you can’t get to yet. Don’t let your windows fall to the bottom of that list. When you notice these signs, that means it’s time to take some action.

A Breeze

Feeling a light breeze on a warm, sunny day is one of the most delightful parts of late spring and early summer. However, when all of your windows are closed, you shouldn’t feel a breeze coming inside your home at all. If you do, then this is a sign that your current windows were haphazardly installed. It could also indicate that the seals have broken down due to age, weather damage, or general neglect. If your home feels unbearably hot, then it means that the cooler, conditioned air is escaping. Replacement windows can help fix this problem.

Can’t Operate Existing Windows

Another troubling indication that you need replacement windows is when you can’t operate your existing windows? What might this mean? Opening, closing, locking, and unlocking your windows should be smooth and frustration-free. Granted, sometimes you might need some lubricant, but the problem could be due to something more extensive and systemic. For instance, the problems with your window sticking could be due to rust caused by water damage or rotting on your window frames, which is also caused by excessive water absorption.

Water Damage

Take some time to inspect the frames around your current windows more closely. If they feel strangely soft, it means that replacing your windows is your only option due to water damage. You don’t want your windows to sag, which means that they’ll be harder to open and close.

Condensations and Cracks

Some condensation is normal, particularly on rainy days. But even if you see condensation build up on days when it isn’t raining, this could point to cracks in your windows. Broken seals will lead to water damage on the sheets of glass themselves, not to mention the potential for gas leakage – the same gas fills such as argon that helps increase the energy efficiency of your windows.
