Windows and doors are an essential part of any home. We often take them for granted. They prevent intruders and wildlife from coming in and help protect us from the elements outdoors. They can last for years, but even the best brands have a lifespan. How can you tell if your windows and doors are ready to be replaced?
- It’s Harder to Control Indoor Climate – If you notice drafts when doors and windows are closed or your energy bills are going up, then it’s likely time for an update. Deteriorated windows and doors won’t keep the elements out like they used to and will make it harder to maintain comfortable temperatures indoors.
- Noise Pollution Is Heard Inside – Do you notice more sounds from outdoors making their way into your living space? Your windows and doors are likely not doing their job. Newer models offer better insulation, so your home stays peaceful.
- Frames Feel Soft or Appear Damaged – If window or door frames feel soft or have noticeable damage, you may need at least a repair if not a whole replacement. Water damage can cause significant deterioration, which needs to be addressed quickly.
- It’s Difficult to Open, Close, or Lock – If you can’t easily open, close, and/or lock your windows and doors, then that’s a sure sign you need new ones. Even hardware will age and eventually fail. Replace now before you can’t open or lock your home.
