If your windows provide little protection from the sounds of the outdoors, they may not be sealed correctly or were poorly made to begin with. New double- or triple-pane glass windows insulated with Argon or Krypton gas can decrease outdoor noise, which is especially helpful if you live in a busy neighborhood or on a busy road.
Do you feel a breeze from your windows when they’re closed? If so, there could be a number of issues including poor installation, faulty seals and more. A drafty window can drastically change the overall temperature of your home, causing your HVAC system to work twice as hard to keep up with the fluctuating temperature.
If your window frames are soft to the touch and chipped, it is likely that they are already beyond repair. Soft window frames indicate rot and water infiltration. It’s possible that they will start sagging, if they haven’t already.
Windows that were not installed correctly tend to develop balance issues, making the windows challenging to open and close. Windows that are rusting or rotting can also be difficult to use. If your windows do not close properly, you may not be able to lock them, which can impact the safety of your home.
If you notice that your windows are frosting between the layers of glass, it means that your seals have failed, allowing moisture between the glass panes. Once the seals fail, any insulating gas used to make the window energy efficient is now gone. Cracked window glass allows additional spots for air to leak in and out of your window.
Up to 50% of the air your heating and cooling system creates is lost through windows and doors; that means 50% of the energy you pay for is wasted. Modern windows provide better insulation, helping keep cool air in during the summer months and preventing heat loss during the winter.
New windows provide more natural lighting, and can help with noise reduction—especially important if you live on a busy street! Modern window replacements offer better UV protection, keeping your kids safe from UV rays and protecting your furnishings from fade.
Replacing your windows pays off in terms of curb appeal. Your windows are always visible, and selecting the right style, material, and color can help improve the look of your home—both inside and out. Adding visual interest through new windows means killing two birds with one stone: your home looks great, and works more efficiently for your family.
Your house should keep your family safe, and replacing your home's windows can provide peace of mind. The right windows can keep your home better protected from intruders, and new film technology helps prevent injury should a window break. How? Modern glass panes are designed to splinter into small, tiny pieces, instead of shattering into large shards.
Windows’ material is designed to withstand the most adverse weather conditions, such as ice and snow storms, hail, heavy rainfall, ice dams and hurricanes. This makes it a prime choice for homeowners who live in areas that get frequently hit by these natural calamities.
