4 Warning Signs That You Need New Windows

Are your windows old and drafty? Have your energy bills gone up lately for no apparent reason? If so, it might be time to replace your windows.

4 Warning Signs That You Need New Windows

How do you know when it’s time to tackle a window replacement? Read on as Renewal by Andersen® of Portland shares the telltale signs:

1. Your Windows Are Filled With Rot

Even the highest-quality window will eventually need to be replaced due to wear and tear from age. If your old, wooden windows are looking rotted, it’s time to replace them. Not only does rot compromise your window’s performance and energy efficiency, it also creates an eyesore, which damages your curb appeal.

2. You Feel a Breeze When the Windows Are Closed

Windows that do little to prevent drafts from coming in even when they’re closed have reached the end of their service life and need to be replaced. New weatherstripping may remedy the problem for a short while, but this is more of a band-aid solution than a cure. Instead of settling for quick, temporary fixes, consider getting replacement windows.

3. Your Windows Get Foggy

In double-pane windows, a special gas is sealed between the two panes to reduce heat transfer and keep the surface of the glass warm to prevent condensation. If you notice small droplets of water inside the glass, it points to seal failure. A compromised seal leaks out the insulating gas, rendering your windows inefficient.

4. Your Windows Slam Shut

If your old-fashioned double-hung units have sashes that are unable to remain raised, you have a balance problem. This poses both an insulation and a security issue. Without installing replacement windows, your broken double-hung units pose a safety risk for you and your family.
