If your home’s windows are deteriorating and need replacement, it’s worth considering replacing them immediately. While there is no convenient time to replace your windows, with both seasons having advantages and disadvantages, getting rid of old, drafty windows is vital. Replacing windows can be a significant concern for homeowners due to the amount of work necessary. However, acting quickly and effectively can be one of the best investments you make for your home and lifestyle. Today’s high-quality windows can offer a broad range of benefits that will enhance your home’s performance, aesthetics and overall value in no time.

Ask yourself these questions if you believe that your windows are fine the way they are or if they can take another year or two before replacing them:

Are your current windows single pane?

Upgrading to double-pane windows is highly recommended by experts across the board. Replace those single-pane windows for a dramatic improvement in indoor comfort, better security and safety and much lower energy bills.

Are window frames water damaged or rotten?

Wood windows require a lot of maintenance and upkeep, which can make them susceptible to rot. If you notice any damage or deterioration, especially if your wood windows are made with older materials, it’s time to replace them. You can replace them with vinyl, fiberglass or other materials for a significant maintenance reduction and better energy efficiency.

How easily operable are your windows?

Can you open and close your windows easily, or is it a struggle? Constantly having your windows stuck in an open or closed position can be frustrating and is a sign that your windows are on their last legs. It might be time for new windows if it becomes an everyday struggle.

Are they attractive?

Ugly windows are an eyesore for everyone: your neighbors, friends and yourself. They need to do something to help the look of your home’s interior or exterior appeal. To dramatically enhance the beauty of your home, it’s time to replace your old, out-of-style windows with sleeker, modern-styled ones.
