Windows do a lot of things for your home. They let light and air into your home, sure, but they also contribute greatly to its overall aesthetics, comfort and energy efficiency. But these are only true for windows that are still in good condition. If your existing windows are already old and failing, the ideal solution is to get newer, better ones. But how exactly do you know that it’s time to invest in that upgrade? Renewal by Andersen® of Rapid City, the premier casement window replacement company in the area, shares some of the warning signs to watch out for.
1. Damaged Framing Material. Windows can be damaged in a number of ways, and the frames are the first component that typically gets affected. The frames of wood and vinyl windows, for example, tend to expand and contract under extreme changes in weather and temperature, causing them to twist and warp. Some window frames are also prone to moisture damage, which can weaken the integrity of the unit and make them inoperable. In more serious cases, the frames can be damaged enough that the window hinges no longer have a material to attach to.
2. Broken Window Panes. Damaged window frames are already bad enough, but what if you add broken panes into the mix? You no longer have the option to NOT invest in newer and higher quality home replacement windows. For starters, broken window panes are a safety risk. Not only that–they also let drafts leak into your home and, at the same time, allow costly heating and cooling energy to escape. If you want to maintain a consistent and comfortable indoor temperature, and prevent significant energy loss, make sure to plan your window replacement pronto.
3. Outdated Look. We’ve mentioned before that windows can define the overall look of your home. Broken and outdated windows, however, won’t be doing your home any favors when it comes to curb appeal, so it’s better to have them replaced immediately.
