As a premier windows company, Seamless Exteriors places an emphasis on its on-site consultation. That’s because you might have failing windows and not realize it. While it’s tempting to wait for a proper sign before getting them fixed, this can sometimes lead to more damage. It’s often the minor signs that give away the fact that your windows are past their prime.
1. High Energy Bills
A poorly performing window can be the biggest energy vampire in your home. That’s because drafts and leaks can easily form due to failed seals. It can get more problematic when you have single-pane windows since they allow for more heat transfer.
2. Loud Sounds
You’re not supposed to hear loud sounds when the windows are shut. At best, they should be muffled. If you do hear loud sounds, it’s possible that the seals have failed. While we’re at it, we’d like to note that it’s better to get multiple glazes for a better sound buffer.
Condensation occurs naturally on the surface of windows. However, it shouldn’t appear foggy nor should condensation appear in between the glass panes of your window. Any window contractor would see this and advise repairs. This can be a sign of leak damage, which could also lead to drafts or warped frames.
4. Sticky Hinges or Slides
Opening and closing a window should be easy and smooth. That’s why a sticky window is a sign of deterioration. When the sash gets stuck halfway or is hard to move, it could be a sign of a failing frame. It’s best to replace it now before the damage is irreversible.
5. Out of Style
Sometimes, the windows just don’t fit your home anymore. Whether it’s due to a recent remodeling project or due to fading colors, they can end up clashing with the rest of your home. With replacement windows, you can update your windows to new ones with a more impressive and long-lasting finish.
