Alas poor windows. Never looked at…always looked through. They’ve been around so long, you don’t even see them anymore. It may finally be time to take a good, hard look at your old windows and see them for what they are: replaceable. The first step is to get over the thought that installing new windows is an unrecoverable expense. That’s just not true. Instead look at new windows as an investment. In your home. In your family. In your life.
Not sure you need new windows? Here are the obvious signs that you do:
- – Your home has single-paned, non-insulated windows.
- – The windows in your home are 20 years old or more.
- – Your windows are difficult to open and close. Or worse, you can’t get them to lock.
- – The frames of your windows are rotten or full of mold
- – Your windows are warped
- – The paint or material on your windows I peeling off.
- – You feel drafts when you’re near your windows
