Why Your Old Windows Are Rattling

Age and constant weather exposure make your existing windows more susceptible to rattling. But why exactly does this problem occur in your old units, and how do you deal with it?

Why Your Old Windows Are Rattling

Reasons Your Old Windows Rattle

The rattling in your windows is not only an annoyance – it can also indicate an underlying problem with your existing units. One possibility is loose glass, which can only mean the caulking has already deteriorated between the frames and the window opening. Any openings created by the damaged seal around the windows makes it easier for outdoor temperatures to leak inside your home, compromising its thermal comfort and allowing costly energy to leak outside.

Another reason is rot, which is more common in old wooden windows. This happens when the units are exposed to excessive moisture, causing mold to develop and eat away at the frames. Because both glass and framing material are already compromised, your windows may rattle when a forceful gale makes any contact with them. Should you notice rattling in your current windows, make sure to consult a reliable window and door replacement company like Renewal by Andersen® of Southwest Missouri promptly for the necessary solution.

"Renewal by Anderson is definitely the way to go for replacement windows. A representative will come out to your house to discuss window replacements, their Fibrex windows, and cost. You do not have to do all the windows at the same time. We chose only to do 10 windows at this time. The price quoted is good for a full year. A few days later another Representative will come out to expertly measure all windows you are choosing to replace. These measurements are sent to the Renewal by Anderson Factory, where your replacement windows are made. Soon after your order has been processed an installation crew shows up with your replacement windows. Renewal by Andersen is excellent in keeping the customer informed from the start of the process to the final installation. We had a crew of 5 that took 2 days for 10 windows. They were definitely top-notch and you could immediately tell they had been installing windows for quite some time. They were definitely prepared for any situation that came up during your window replacement. One window had evidence of past termite infestation. The wood had to be replaced before the installation of our new window. I generally keep an infrared space heater in that room because of all the 5 bay windows. After our new windows were installed, WOW no heat loss. The room no longer felt cooler than the rest of the house. The windows look fantastic. The outside screens are virtually invisible. We love our new windows. You won't be disappointed!!"

"Every employee I have met in this company has been very kind and nice to speak with (even when I'm out of town and have to tell them I'm waay out of their zone for promotions lol!) Customizing the front door was fun, and I'm very happy with the end result of a brand new door frame that is sealed well and closes so quietly and smoothly! The frosted glass window panels top to bottom really let in an awesome amount of natural light. The manufacturing process went well with lots of updates along the way, and the salesperson was able to answer every question I had about financing. Can't wait to start upgrading the windows next! As a first time homebuyer I feel very secure in knowing I can call the company and they will make sure their product stays up to their quality standards. They are going to help this 105 year old house stand strong for another 100!"
