When Should I Replace my Windows and Doors?
Whether you’re building a new home, remodeling an existing living space, or replacing old, leaky windows and doors, look for quality, custom-made products that fit your needs.
Quality windows and doors are made of durable vinyl, so they never need to be painted. And because they look great, as well as provide energy efficiency, they will increase the value of your home while reducing your energy costs. New windows and doors also enhance the appearance of your home making it a nicer place to live.
The key signs that it’s time to replace your windows include:
- Old, single-pane glass
- Moisture damage and rotting wood
- Noticeable air leaks
- Cracks in your sashes and sills
- Condensation or fogging between glass panes
- Excessive noise from outside
- Windows or doors do not open and close easily
If you are building a new home, you’ve had to make many choices. Now it’s time to choose your windows. What should you look for? Well, your best investment is to install high-quality windows that suit the design, colour and style of your new home. Ones that will last you for many years
Energy-efficient windows save you money in the long run by keeping your home cool in the summer and warm in the winter. Look for durable vinyl windows with, at minimum, double-glazing.
Vinyl is an attractive and low-maintenance option because they’re easy to clean, energy efficient and built to last, while “glazing” refers to the number of panes of glass in the window. Double or triple glazing provides excellent energy efficiency in colder climates.
The size, shape and location of your home’s windows can help you maximize sunlight and airflow, and increase privacy. New windows and patio doors are a great way to improve the energy efficiency, beauty and comfort of any living space.
