Outside Noise

Your windows don’t only keep the weather out, they keep noise out as well. If you are starting to notice more outside noise like traffic from the street then you can make your home a quiet oasis once again just by replacing your windows.

They Get Stuck

Opening, closing, and locking your windows shouldn’t be a chore. If doing these things has become a problem then there could be issues with the window frames or the windows themselves.

Your home’s windows are vital to keeping you and your family comfortable all while keeping your energy bills affordable. Not only that, your windows can make a powerful statement on the overall appearance of your home. When it comes to replacing your windows, how do you know it’s time?

High Energy Bills

Replacing your windows can have a dramatic effect on your energy bills. Newer windows are much more effective at insulating your home, keeping the warm air in during winter and the cool air in during summer. This is especially true if you still have single-pane windows.

Water Leaks

There are many reasons why windows begin to leak. Usually, it’s because the seals have worn out. This is the ideal time to have your windows inspected and consider replacing your windows as having them resealed may not be an option or may not be cost-effective.

Broken Frames or Panes

Over time, window frames can break down. Constantly changing temperatures have an impact on the materials used to make them. Older window panes are made with materials that are much easier to break. Replacing your windows with newer and more durable ones can mean you won’t be replacing them again for a long time.


If you notice condensation on the inside of your windows then they aren’t insulating your home very well. If you have multi-pane windows and there is condensation between the panes, the seal has most likely worn. In either case, it’s time to replace them.

Cold Drafts

No one likes to feel a cold draft in their home during the winter months. If your windows are to blame then replacing them can solve the problem and make your home much more comfortable.
