Have you taken a good look at your house’s windows lately? Window replacement can sometimes be a bit of a hassle, but if you notice any of these signs, it’s time for you to get that glass changed!

Broken Windows

People often resort to repairing a broken window instead of having it replaced. Although this may seem as a less expensive option at the time, repairing isn’t always the most effective method, especially for an already damaged window.

Don’t opt for temporary fixes either! Even if they’re still operational or held in place thanks to the supporting material you used, delaying a replacement will only result in further problems in the future. If your windows are cracked, broken, or won’t open/close, it’s time for a replacement.

Decaying Frames

When exposed to moisture, wooden window frames can begin to decay. This moisture damage can soon become a safety hazard, and can seriously threaten the integrity of your windows. If your window frames are showing signs of being worn out by moisture, it’s time for an upgrade.

Moisture damage can also result in leaking windows. Imagine walking into your house one rainy day to find a pool of water on the floor. The longer you hold off on window replacement, the more damage you’ll have to fix. Moisture accelerates the growth of mold, and ignoring this for too long will result in damaged frames and leaky windows.

Constant Condensation

Is the outside of your window much colder than its interior side?  Have you been noticing foggy windows or condensation building up regularly on the glass? If yes, then your window is no longer acting as a protective and insulation barrier between the inside and outside of your home.

Not all condensation is bad.  However, this largely depends on where exactly it occurs on the window glass. If you observe condensation in between the two window panes, then it’s definitely a sign that the protective seals are no longer functioning and need to be replaced. You don’t want leaky windows!
