If your windows are more than 15-20 years old or damaged, it may be time for window replacements. The fact is windows become less efficient over the years and are more difficult to maintain. Below are a few of the top reasons to update with new windows.
Water has a way of penetrating a home unnoticed, and windows are one of the biggest problem areas. Moisture in your home is your arch enemy as it sneaks in unnoticed. Older windows can lose their ability to hold out year round moisture. By the time you see symptoms, you have already incurred damage. Mold growth on your ceiling and inner walls is the worst kind of damage.
In the cold, if your windows are drafty it might be time for an update. Older windows loose the ability to hold out cold like the new more efficient windows. Overtime with the elements, window insulation can break down and becomes less efficient. New windows will not only hold out the draft but will help reduce monthly utility bills.
Older windows don’t have a UV coating. This UV Coating protects your furniture, rugs and artwork from fading. If you like to let the sun in, you need to keep the UV rays out.
