6 Telltale Signs That It’s Time for Window Replacement

6 Telltale Signs That It's Time for Window Replacement

Window replacement isn’t usually the first renovation project on most homeowner’s minds. However, it might be time to refresh your windows if you’re noticing some of these bothersome issues. 

Below, we’ll walk you through some telltale signs that it’s time to install new portholes. If you notice any of these characteristics outlined below, contact an expert at Snow Roofing & Exteriors today and our team will be happy to help.

Now, on to the window warning signs. We’ll start with the most obvious one first. 

1. It’s Difficult to Open or Close Your Windows

Operating your windows successfully is essential to a functioning home. You should have the ability to open them easily when it’s time for some fresh air, and close them securely at night. These are basic principles of a functioning home.

If you’re having trouble opening and closing your windows, it can be caused by a number of things. For instance, a buildup of dirt or dust could cause them to stik. Or it could be a spring that’s too tightly fastened. 

Your windows should open and close smoothly and lock with ease.

2. There is Visible Damage 

Another visible hint that your home could benefit from new windows is if you spot physical damage. An easy example of this is finding cracks in the window frame. 

Moisture can cause frames to decay. This leaves your windows susceptible to cold air seeping in, or even letting in rain and extra moisture. This damage can worsen over time, so it’s best to replace your windows as soon as possible.

3. Your Windows Let in a Draft

Like we mentioned previously, if you’re noticing a breeze coming through the panes or near the frame, this is a sign that it’s time for window replacement. 

Not only is it energy inefficient, drafty windows will lead you to spending extra money to maintain the temperature of your home. Don’t worry about the elements coming through old windows. Contact us at Snow Roofing and we’ll get your home taken care of. 

4. Window Replacement for a Modern Look

On the cosmetic side of things, you might want to consider replacing your windows to increase your home’s curb appeal.

If your aging windows present an eyesore, it may be time to invest in an upgrade. Whether it’s for you and your family to enjoy a more modern look, or let in more light; or if you want to increase your home’s market value, updating your windows makes a big difference. 

Additionally, if your home is graced with a beautiful view outside, why not grace it with fresh windows and new frames to match?

5. Annoying Noise Pollution

If you live downtown or in a noisy neighborhood, windows can make or break your home’s environment. Weakened windows not only let in drafty air, but they allow noise pollution too. 

Stop listening to your neighbor’s family hollering down the street. It’s your home and your peace, after all. Protect it by upgrading to fresh windows. (It’s safer, too. Faulty windows can also mean faulty locks, putting your family at risk to possible intruders and break-ins. Do your home a favor by keeping your windows and locks in top shape.) 

6. Possible Molding and Rot

Lastly, if you notice an odor around old windows, it could indicate  a more serious issue. If excess moisture is getting in and accumulating around old frames, it can lead to rot and possible mold growth. This should be addressed immediately by a professional. 

Wood rot near a window can actually spread into surrounding walls, wreaking havoc on the structural integrity of your home. Before letting things get worse, contact a specialist to help you get your windows inspected and replaced.
