Window replacement is a worthwhile investment and makes for a safer home.
While windows are one of the best parts of a home, they are also one the most vulnerable. If your home has old windows, it’s worth it to consider window replacement because windows have a significant effect on your home’s structural integrity, energy efficiency, and security.
It is essential that your windows fit properly and don’t have leaks in order to avoid water damage in surrounding areas. Water damage not only causes aesthetic problems like stains, discoloration, and peeling paint, but it also causes structural issues. Water leaking through old windows can cause your drywall to sag and eventually collapse. It also causes mold growth and rot to the wall area and floor beneath the window.
Faulty windows are a nuisance to your home’s energy efficiency as well. When air enters and escapes your home at will, your energy bills will spike because your HVAC system has to work harder to maintain a comfortable temperature indoors. Luckily, window replacement can help insulate your home and prevent this problem.
Lastly, old and ineffective windows can be a security issue. Your windows need to be strong and have working locks to protect your home from intruders, and they need to look new and effective to discourage burglars from attempting a break in.
