Windows are an essential part of your home. Well-designed windows play a variety of important roles and improve your home’s curb appeal, let natural light in your home, and improve your energy efficiency. Rundown windows can cause many issues for you, not only for the comfort of your home but also for the security of your home. Here are some signs to watch out for to know you need to hire a window installation service to replace your windows.

Leaky Windows or Decaying Frames

One of the most prominent signs that you need to replace your windows is when the window frames begin to decay. As wooden window frames are exposed to moisture, get built-up moisture damage. If you notice that your window frames show signs of decay, this is a sign that your windows are in serious need of an upgrade. Additionally, with damage like this, it is best to get a professional to install your new windows. This ensures that they have the knowledge to fix the frame and get a perfect fit.

If you also notice that you have windows that are leaking, remember that moisture fuels the growth of mold, even with very little water. You could just repair your windows but you wouldn’t be actually fixing the issue. The only way to truly fix leaking windows and prevent the issue from happening again is to replace them using a window installation service.

High Energy Bills

You can test if your window is the reason for your increase in energy bills by feeling the surface of the window or holding up a lighted candle to it. This can determine if there is wind or cold air coming through. Older windows are generally single-paned and vulnerable to leaks, but newer windows are highly efficient and designed to help prevent air from transferring. If your energy bills are high, consider replacing them with newer window models.

With problems like this, you will want to have a window installation service come and replace your windows for you. Correct installation is important for the longevity of your windows. Contact us today for any questions or to get a quote on your window installation.
