If you have newer windows in your home that are giving you problems, you should probably attempt to repair them rather than replacing them at first. There is a good chance that an experienced window repair company can bring your windows back to life and allow you to get some more mileage out of them if they’re still in decent condition. However, there are some instances in which you should seriously consider replacing windows instead of doing window replacement. Here are a few of them
Your windows are allowing air to leak into your home.
There are a lot of older windows that have single pane glass in them. These windows will often allow air to leak into your home throughout the course of the year. It can bring down the energy efficiency of your home and cause your HVAC system to work overtime to heat and cool your property. Replacing these windows will make all the sense in the world.
Your windows are rotting.
If you have wood windows, rotting is something that you’re going to have to keep an eye out for at all times. You can repair rotting windows if there’s only a small amount of rot. But if the rotting is extensive, the windows will need to be replaced altogether. You’ll also need to find the reason for the rot and make sure your next windows aren’t affected.
Your windows have parts that can’t be repaired or replaced.
More often than not, the parts inside of windows can be repaired or replaced. But if your windows are on the older side, the parts could potentially be discontinued at this point, which will rule out the option of repairing your windows. You’ll need to replace your windows instead to get them to work like they should again.
