How to Know When It’s Time to Replace Your Window Frames

Look at your windows. The frames might be worn out.

Look at your windows. The frames might be worn out. When the frames are too worn down, that is a sign that your windows need to be replaced. Here is a better look at framing options for replacement windows and when you will know the time is right to not only replace the windows themselves but their frames as well.

There Are Signs of Damage

Take a closer look at your windows. If there are signs of damage, then it is time to replace the windows. Warped glass and twisted frames can lead to problems that will steadily get worse if you fail to address them. You might have to start by replacing the weatherstripping that helps keep cold air out of your home. Even with spring approaching, there will still be cold nights as well. So if you see the sashes and frames rotting or wearing away, then contact a window replacement specialist.

You Can’t Open the Windows

Opening and closing the windows makes a difference. On a warm day, you will want to let as much fresh air into your home as possible. But you cannot do that if the windows will not open. If the windows are not staying open or will not close as you expect them to, then there could be something wrong with the frames. In this case, you will want to get the frames replaced along with the entire window – that way, the window will not affect the structural integrity or safety of your home.

You Want to Save Energy

During the winter, you did your best to save energy and money by not turning on the heat inside your home. As spring and summer approach, you will want to continue saving energy by using your cooling system as little as possible. However, worn out windows with holes in their frames will allow heat to leak out of your home. That is  why you need to replace the frames if they cannot be repaired. Plus, you can make sure that the seal on the windows is in good shape, which depending on the age of the window, may be the source of the problem.

Your Home is Older

It is also possible that your home is older. Older homes and other historic buildings often feature wooden frames on their windows. Choosing to replace them with newer materials can help make your home more energy efficient, more comfortable, and increase its curb appeal as well.
