Windows are an essential facade of the house. They contribute to the overall architectural design and appeal of a building. In addition to the previously discussed signs that you need replacement windows in your home, we bring to you five more signs that indicate it is time to change your windows.
Here are the 5 signs that indicate it is time to change your windows:
1. The Home Needs a Facelift
Replacement windows help to create fantastic curb appeal for a house. If you want to improve the aesthetics of your home, replacement windows are an essential element you must consider. Your choice of replacement windows should be based on the type of the existing windows, level of energy efficiency, and your budget. You may need to choose a different design to change the look of your home.
2. Renovation of a Newly Purchased Home
If you just purchased and moved into a new home, replacement windows are one of the projects you must undertake to secure your home and make it more comfortable. You may not be satisfied with the state of the existing windows in the house; have them replaced to your taste and preference. Then, you will be sure of the energy efficiency of your home. And it will also improve the curb appeal of the building.
3. Faded Furniture and Carpets
When the furniture and rugs that are close to the windows appear more faded than the rest, the windows on that side must have lost their efficiency by allowing the harmful UV-rays enter the interior of the home to damage your property. You can also check the curtains on that side of the windows to check the level of the fading. Once it is confirmed that the curtains are more faded than the rest, start planning for replacement windows in your home.
When the estimate life span of your windows has been reached, you need replacement windows, even without physical damage to the existing windows. Some windows come with 10 years’ guarantee while others have about 15-20 years estimated life expectancy. If you have lived in your home for about 20-25 years without carrying out any significant repairs or replacement work on your windows, you should start planning for replacement windows.
5. Severe Storm
If your house is located in an area that is prone to severe weather events like a hurricane, you should be prepared for the possibility of damaged windows. After such a weather event, it may be necessary to replace your existing windows.
