These Are the Problems Your Windows Face During Winter

The winter season is the ultimate test for a house window replacement. Even under the mild and mostly wet winters of Tennessee, winter can still be a tough time for many window products. If your new replacement windows can survive the winter, then you know it can handle almost anything Mother Nature can throw at it.

These Are the Problems Your Windows Face During Winter

It’s important to familiarize yourself with the common issues your home faces during the cold days. This way, you can take steps to be ready and even avoid bad habits that could jeopardize the performance of your replacement windows. Here are some tips from our experts at Renewal by Andersen® of Memphis on how to get your home and your windows ready for the new season.

Condensation

For the most part, you won’t need to contact your local window replacement service for condensation problems. In fact, condensation is even normal and to be expected during winter. However, if the problem occurs more frequently than usual or at odd times, then it could be an issue. For example, condensation is more common during the night when warm humid air from indoors comes into contact with the cold glass surface. If this problem happens too much or even during warm days, call a professional right away.

Drafts

Replacement windows are sealed and designed to be as airtight as possible. This means drafts should certainly not happen, especially for newly installed replacement windows. If you notice the formation of drafts around your windows, it could be a sign of seal failure. Contact your local window contractor for an inspection immediately.

Ice

Your window company may warn you of icing problems, especially during winter. Ice can come from the condensation on the glass, which is usually normal, or it could just be from the humidity levels inside or outside your home. Either way, ice could lead to drafts so it’s best to call your contractor if your windows are icing up too quickly and frequently.

"Absolutely wonderful experience working with renewal. They kept my wife and I up to date all throughout the process from the initial sales pitch to installation. They were courteous and professional throughout. The installation of 8 windows was completed in one day and the product is fantastic. Immediate difference felt inside the home and its much quieter now too. My wife and I are thrilled at our purchase. The windows are a bit pricey but worth every single penny. Wonderful product from a wonderful company. Will definitely be using them in the future to install the rest of the windows in our home."

"When I say, superior service I mean just that!! From start to finish I was pleased!! Step 1, Scheduled appointment at the Home show… easy. Step 2, phone call to confirm appointment the next week….easy. Step 3, in home consultation with Keith Billingsley…..Amazing!!!! Step 4, call and cancel all other Window companies and let them know you have chosen the Best company, Anderson Windows!!! My Windows took a couple of months to come which was not a problem. Oooohhh but when installing day came ( a week early) I was lost for words. The installation team was A1 with professionalism and cleanliness!! They didn’t leave a scrap of trash on my property. It was cleaned up both days. I had Ed Tutton and crew. I had a million questions and they answered every one of them and made me feel so assured with the process. A couple of my Windows had wood rotted. They took care of it and fixed it better than when the house was built!!! Two of my Windows came in broken, it was addressed and shown to us and reorder in the same day!! They will be installed later. The Windows are so beautiful I stood in my master bedroom Windows for almost 3 hours just looking out. I hate Window grates…. I have solid glass Windows now❤️❤️! I wish I would have ordered my new front doors from Anderson Windows. So if you are looking to get new Windows you must go with Anderson Windows!!!"
