When Should You Replace Your Windows?

Sometimes it is hard to know when to replace your windows. They might look perfectly fine, but you might not be aware that you are losing all of your heating and cooling out of the glass panes. Here is a quick checklist to see if your windows might need replacing this year.

Rotten Sashes

If the sashes of your windows are rotting from condensation or other moisture, it is probably time to replace your windows. You can have a professional replace your sashes, but it is only a temporary fix. Chances are, whatever caused the rotting in the first place will just start rotting out the new sashes too.

Old Glass

If your windows have old glass in them, they are not as energy efficient as newer glass with better technology. You can lose a lot of your heating and cooling energy through the glass of your windows, so it is important to replace them before this happens. It’s like watching your money float right out the window…

Home Built Before 1960

If you live in a home built before 1960, chances are there are traces of lead paint in your windows. Even if you have painted over them with new, safer paint, there is still no guarantee that the lead won’t start soaking through. Keep your whole family safe by getting new, safer windows installed.


Are your windows a hassle to open and clean? New windows may be your solution. Windows need to be opened and cleaned on a regular basis, so if you are struggling with yours, now may be the time to replace them. New windows can make life a whole lot easier and cut your cleaning time in half.

Storm Windows

Do your windows still have storm windows? Older model windows needed storm windows in order to block out the elements, but newer windows are designed to not need storm windows. If you are struggling to maintain and clean all your storm windows as well as your regular windows, you may have a great reason to think about replacement windows.
