You know you want new windows, but you are of the financially sound mind that doesn’t believe in replacing a perfectly good item just because you want something new. Even when something is going downhill, you do the financially right thing and fix it.
But, you can only fix something so many times before it is no longer fixable. And that window that you thought was still in working shape may not be as good as you think it is, even with the fixes.
Window Accident Victim
Windows get broken; it is just a fact of life. It could be from children playing, cleaning mishaps, or one of the many other things that can break glass. You could always just throw some duct tape on the glass to cover the hole and the cracks to call it good, but that’s really not recommended. Besides, not being safe that would look horrible.
You could also replace the broken glass with a new pane. However, unless you know what you are doing that is really not recommended either.
The best thing to do is to just replace the broken window. You can have just one window replaced at a time if that is all you need. There is no obligation for you to replace all the windows in your home, just because one broke.
New Paint, New Windows
When you paint your home a new color or color scheme, it’s a good time to think about replacing your windows. Even if your windows are still working correctly, if they are old and worn they can negate any improvement that the new paint on the house was supposed to have in helping the house look better.
Not Enough Window Caulking in the World
If you are thinking about buying stock in a caulking company because you buy so much of it for your windows, that is a sign that it’s a good time to replace your windows. Once windows are being repaired over and over again, to the point that there is nothing left but the repaired parts, that’s when it is time to start shopping for replacement windows, instead of more caulking.
