Your windows have an important job in keeping your home efficient, comfortable and beautiful all year round. That said, you need to make sure that they always remain in top condition. When you notice an increase in energy bills or detect drafts coming through the windows, it’s time to assess whether repair or replacement would be a more cost-effective solution. Let Renewal by Andersen® of Columbus, Ohio, the window replacement expert, review some items you should consider.
Do your windows panes have cracks, chips or scratches? If you have vintage, aluminum-clad or multi-pane custom windows, you can opt for repair if they’re not yet past their prime as they can be costly to replace. Meanwhile, if you have inexpensive units like vinyl, replacement would be a better choice.
If your wood windows start to rot, water and air can seep into your house. If the damage is spotty, you can still remedy it with repairs. If the frames are extensively rotten, however, it’s best to have them replaced with durable and low-maintenance units like those from Renewal by Andersen.
Your windows expand and contract due to fluctuating temperatures, which can deteriorate the seals over time. Once the seals get damaged, it’s difficult to repair the panes. This allows condensation to form between the panes, which can impair your windows’s efficiency. The most practical option in this situation is to invest in replacement windows.
Having problems opening and closing your windows? Maybe there’s dirt and grit in the track and balances, or the sashes are painted shut. This problem is fixable as long as replacement parts for your old windows are still available. Otherwise, you should completely replace the window.
