Signs That You Need Window Replacement
Windows may not be the most imposing parts of your home but they certainly affect how the rest of it works. In fact, if a storm hits your property and you request a damage assessment, your storm restoration specialist will make sure that your windows are checked, whether you mention it or not. There really isn’t much you can do when a storm hits but you do have control over your actions before and after disaster strikes. Most people assume that repairs are cheaper than replacement, but that isn’t always the case.
Drafts and Leaks
If your windows are over two decades old and already have signs of warping or chipping, replacing them might be the better option. Drafty windows, on one hand, contribute to wasteful energy consumption. The type of glass you have and their installation quality contributes to increasing or decreasing your HVAC requirements. Leaky windows, on the other hand, expose your entire home to moisture accumulation and water damage. Moisture encourages mold growth which, in turn, causes various health problems. It also puts your home’s structural integrity at risk.
Improving With Light
If you are considering changing out your lighting fixtures as part of making your home more energy-efficient, replacement windows might further lessen the need for expensive lighting systems. When storm damage window repair and restoration become necessary, ask your contractor about installing well-placed and adequately sized windows that allow more natural light to enter your home.
If you are thinking about updating your home’s design, consider your windows as well. Springing for replacements will keep them in line with the visual appeal you are trying to achieve. A home’s value is greatly affected by its appearance and outdated windows can harm its appeal.
