Determining exactly when to replace your home’s window can be much trickier than you may imagine. For homes older than 15 years, it’s best practice to check and make sure they are operating properly.
To guide you along the replacement process, Bennett Contracting offers a few helpful tips to help you decide if it’s time for replacement or an upgrade.
Are You Using Single Pane Windows?
A majority of older homes use their original windows which are built with single-pane glass. To put it simply, these are not energy efficient. These types of windows also develop frost on the windows which dramatically increase the likelihood of breakage.
Does Your Home Seem Especially Noisy?
For those living in the city or near an airport, noise is of a major concern. Eliminate noise transmission with dual-pane or laminated glass.
Having a Tough Time Opening Windows?
If the window gets jammed every time you open it, it’s time for window replacement. This can also pose a serious issue in the event of a fire. It should never be a challenge trying to enjoy a nice breeze in your own home.
