How to Really Know Your Windows Need to be Replaced

By March 12, 2018No Comments

Found yourself in a rut when it comes to your home improvement projects? Need help deciding whether your windows should be a part of your renovations and next home project? Replacing your windows can be tricky. Sometimes, it can be hard to figure out whether your windows need to be replaced or not. Some homeowners think they can get away with just fixing their windows and while that may work sometimes, more likely than not, you’ll have to invest in replacement windows eventually.

Figuring out if you need replacement windows shouldn’t be that hard. There are some tell-tale signs you can use to figure out whether your windows need to be replaced or not. Or you can just call Homestar Windows and Doors and let our professionals give you their expert opinion. But if you’d rather figure it out yourself before calling anyone, read on for the signs.

Broken Windows

If your window is broken, then it’s safe to say you’re in need of a replacement window. Windows that have cracked or broken frames or even broken glass will need to be replaced. It’s best to call in a professional right away before your window becomes even more damaged. Broken windows can be a big cause for water leaks around your window and can cause even more damage to a window sill, the walls, and the flooring beneath it. The last thing you want is water damage happening to your wall or floor because you waited too long to replace a broken window. Broken windows are also a hazard. Loose glass and debris can fall and injure family members, pets, children and guests. No one wants that!

Damaged, Rotted or Warped Windows

If your windows are rotted, severely damaged, or warped then, unfortunately, you’re in need of replacement windows. Rotted windows and frames can be quite gross and possibly even collect mold so it’s important that it’s taken care of sooner than later. Plus, rotted and warped windows can leave a nasty impression on a potential buyer if you’re looking to sell your home.

Outdated Windows

Outdated windows won’t necessarily cause harm to your home (besides the overall curbside appeal), but they are a source of shame for some homeowners. Outdated windows can lessen the resale value of your home. For homeowners who don’t plan on selling their homes in the near future, this isn’t a big issue, but for homeowners who are reliant on selling their home, old windows could be a potential setback.
