Sometimes the fact that you need new windows on your home will hit you right on the forehead. Other times it isn’t so obvious and you have to get that “doh” forehead smack by someone else to realize the need for new windows.
So if you are experiencing any of these following signs, we are here to be that someone to let you know that it is time for new windows.
Sign 1: You Are Thinking Of Moving
If you have been despairing about how bad your house looks on the outside to the point that you are thinking about moving to a new home because you don’t think you can do anything about it, think again. Homes that look bad cosmetically can usually be fixed with new windows. New windows give the outside a facelift by adding new materials that are not damaged and are in perfect condition.
With a fresh coat of paint to go with those new windows, you will have a brand new looking home without the expense and inconvenience of having to move.
Sign 2: Your Windows Are Damaged
If your windows are damaged they are not keeping the elements out of your home like they were designed to do, and they are making your home look bad. Damage can be as obvious as broken panes of glass and warped vinyl, or as unnoticeable as small gaps in the frame.
When a window becomes damaged either from an accident or old age, it can no longer do its job and new windows should be installed. If left alone, these damaged windows can lead to home repair projects that will cost much more than just replacing the window when you find the damage.
Sign 3: High Power Bills
If you can never keep your house cool in the summer or warm in the winter, and the monthly power bill makes you queasy each month you need new windows. Most heat transfer, whether from the inside of your home or the outside happens at your windows.
You don’t have to live with this though; you can stop that heat transfer by upgrading your old windows to energy-efficient new windows. Energy-efficient windows are designed to keep the heat in your house during the winter, and air conditioned air in during the summer. This way your heater and air conditioner doesn’t have to work as hard and you stay comfortable all year round both physically and financially.
