When to Get New Windows
Time to think about new windows? Most windows last around 20 years. If you see signs like rot, or if they’re hard to open and close, it’s time for new ones. Noise and condensation between the glass also mean you need a change.
New windows add value to your home. Replacing your windows can increase your home’s worth by up to $14,912. That’s good news, especially if you’re planning to sell.
New windows can save you money. Roughly 25% to 30% of your home’s energy is lost through windows. If you choose energy-efficient ones, you can cut down on your power bills.
New windows make your home look great. They’re one of the first things people see, so don’t let old windows bring down your home’s charm.
Good windows keep out noise. If you live in a noisy place, new windows can help you get some peace and quiet.
Strong, new windows keep your home safe. If your windows are hard to open or close, or if the locks are old, new windows can make your home a harder target for bad people.
