Windows, no matter how well-maintained, will eventually need replacement. You’ll usually know it’s time because the warning signs are fairly obvious.
1.Extensive Damage to the Framing Material
Much of your windows’ integrity depends on its framing material. Any damage it has sustained – either from age or extreme weather – can affect the overall condition of the window, making the unit a safety and security risk. Some warning signs to look for include warping, mold, rot or large cracks and dents. Try pushing against the framing material. If it’s soft to the touch, easily giving in to the pressure, the unit may already need a replacement.
To get the most of your window replacement, it pays to work with a reliable window installer like Renewal by Andersen® of Southwest Missouri. We offer top-tier options. Our replacement windows use Fibrex® material, which is impervious to cracking, pitting, rot, warping and corrosion. In fact, it combines the strength and insulating value of wood with the low-maintenance performance of vinyl, allowing for windows that remain tough and long-lasting.
2.Cracked Window Panes
Leaving the window panes cracked not only compromises safety, but it can also cause significant energy loss in your home. In some cases, the broken windowpane can be replaced with new glass, but it’s always a better idea to have the entire window replaced. Otherwise, you may be looking at more zeroes in your next monthly energy bill.
