4 Signs That It’s Time to Replace Your Windows

Have you checked your windows recently? For some homeowners, it’s not easy to tell if their windows are still in great condition. It’s important for you to determine the condition of your windows. They serve an important role in your home. Fortunately, trusted window and door replacement contractor Renewal by Andersen® of Memphis shares four signs that show when it’s time to replace your windows.

Replace Your Windows

Observe your windows and your home carefully. Your windows can actually tell you when it’s time to replace them. The following are four warning signs your windows may be showing you:

1. Drafts

Look out for drafts in your window. They are easy to notice and are a tell-tale sign that you need to replace your window immediately. Drafts are normal for old and aging windows. It leaks the conditioned air inside your home, making your HVAC system work harder. This results in higher utility bills. The energy efficiency of your home is compromised. In this case, replacing your window will save you money.

2. Cold or Hot to the Touch

If your windows absorb the temperature easily outside your home, that’s another sign to look for replacement windows. This only means that your windows are not insulated anymore. Windows with poor insulation will not keep your conditioned temperature inside.

3. Condensation

Condensation between your window panes means there is moisture inside. Moisture is a bad sign if it’s inside your windows because it indicates that their seal is compromised. Your windows cannot be easily fixed if their seal is broken enough to let moisture inside.

4. Cracked Window Panes and Frames

The cracks in your window panes and frames are a big deal. Cracks in your window frames can manifest into bigger cracks. Meanwhile, the cracks in your window panes can compromise the energy efficiency of your home, and it‘s best that you replace your windows if those cracks are beyond repair. Look for a trusted window contractor and ask them about replacements, including vinyl replacement windows.

"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!!!"
