Signs You Need to Replace Your Windows
Unless there’s obvious damage, like broken glass, it can be hard to tell when your windows are failing. Here are some of the most common signs that you need to install new windows:
- You feel drafts coming in around the windows
- Your electricity bills are higher than normal but your energy habits haven’t changed
- Your windows are difficult to open and close
- You notice condensation between the panes of glass
- You hear outside noise coming through your windows
If you notice any of these signs, it’s time to start planning your replacement project.
Vinyl windows, which are less costly than wood windows are and come standard in many homes, are extremely easy to care for. They provide moderate insulation because vinyl is a poor conductor of temperature (that means the frame won’t become too cold or too hot during weather extremes). Vinyl window frames are generally hollow with one exception: vinyl-clad windows. Vinyl-clad windows are based on a wood frame and coated with vinyl for added durability and low maintenance.
Fiberglass windows help resist moisture and seal out the elements, and they’re known for being low-maintenance. These types of windows “breathe,” which means they can adjust to temperature changes without warping or cracking, and they’re very good at resisting heat.
Aluminum-clad windows based on a wood frame that’s coated with aluminum. These types of windows are virtually maintenance-free, because the aluminum protects the wood inside, and they’re highly customizable when it comes to color and style. However, the aluminum is sometimes susceptible to scratches and dents.
European-style tilt-and-turn windows are ideal in spaces that need great ventilation. They’re perfect for bathrooms near showers and tubs, or in basements.
Skylights add beauty and charm to your home, and they maximize the amount of natural light in your home. There are several energy-efficient skylight options available, too, which means you get the best of both worlds.
If you want a different style of window with great, European might be the window style for you. These windows open more with their tilt-and-turn design.
If you want a great way to add more light to your home, think about adding a skylight to your home and roof!
