If you are starting to have problems with the windows in your Roseville, CA home, we invite you to play a game with us. The game is called “Are your windows…” All you have to do is ask yourself a few questions about your windows. Some of the answers you will know right away. Others you may have to test near the windows, or take a look at them to figure out the answer. If you have never replaced windows before, you may not know whether it’s time for replacement windows or not. You don’t want to make the investment if you could hold off, right? So play the “are your windows…” game with us now and let’s find out what you need.
Are your windows…
If you can feel air coming through your home around the frames, it’s time to replace the windows. Materials can warp, crack, and rot and when the air enters, your home is less comfortable and your energy bills rise to compensate for the air escaping and getting in.
When your windows were new, they glided open and closed with ease, right? But if they are hard to operate now, it’s a sign that you need new ones. They might be warped or rotting away, or they may have other issues that indicate they need to be replaced. Replacement windows will go back to working like a dream. You want windows for ventilation sure, but they are even more important if there is ever an emergency. You might need that exit.
If you see condensation between the panes of glass, the seal that separates the pane has broken and the window is no longer energy efficient. This usually can’t be repaired so you’ll need replacement windows unless you want higher energy bills to continue.
Even if your windows look okay and seem to function pretty well, if they are over 20 years old, they aren’t nearly as efficient as they could be. Window technology has come a long way in recent years and you can save a lot of money on energy efficiency with that technology in place within your Roseville, CA home.
