Is Now the Time to Replace Your Windows?

Is Now the Time to Replace Your Windows Perhaps lately, you have been looking at your windows and wondering if they could use an upgrade. But, is now the time to replace your windows? A window replacement can be stressful, messy, time-consuming, and, most of all, expensive. However, if your current windows are showing certain signs of deterioration, then replacing your windows now is actually a smarter and more cost-effective solution. Indeed, you won’t have to pay for the damages that your poorly functioning windows may cause down the road, such as astronomical monthly energy bills. In this article, we will address some of the signs that you should look for. If your windows exhibit any of these problems, then it might be time for new windows.


One of the most common reasons people replace their windows is due to drafts. Drafts are often caused by poor insulation, faulty sealing, or a subpar installation and can have a dramatic impact on the energy performance of your home. In fact, drafts can change the overall temperature of your home, meaning your HVAC unit has to work hard to maintain a stable temperature. This can cause your monthly energy bills to skyrocket.

Noise Problems

Have you noticed that you can hear outside noises a little too clearly? That is probably because your windows were not sealed correctly or not constructed well in the first place. Installing new, well-manufactured windows would solve that problem and ensure that it does not get worse over time.

Issues Latching

If your windows were not installed correctly, or they have started to warp, rot, or rust, then they can be hard to open, close, or lock. This means your home is more susceptible to intruders, a risk that you don’t want to – and shouldn’t – take.

Water Damage

Water damage comes in many forms. If your frames have softened, then it means that they were infiltrated by water. Soft frames are beyond repair, and they will start to sag, which has an impact on both the performance and visual appeal of your home. If you notice that your windows are frosted between the layers, then that means that moisture has infiltrated the glass panes. The seals have now failed, and your windows can no longer improve the energy efficiency of your home.
