7 Signs Your Home Needs New Windows | Canadian Choice Windows

Window replacement is often seen as expenditure. But, did you know that new windows come with a 50-100% average recovery rate? This means that you may receive at least half or even a full return on investment on the sale of your home.

If you notice any of the following signs on your windows, it’s time for an upgrade:

A Broken Pane

Broken panes could be a result of highly worn-out windows, especially if you are living in an ancestral home. A severe storm or constant use of abrasive cleaners can also damage a pane.

Older window panes are especially hard to replace. Replacing windows becomes necessary if you are unable to find a matching pane.

Rotten Window Frames

Heavy rotting that has spread through the frame and is immediately evident necessitates a window replacement. Apart from being visually unappealing, rotten wood frames cause air and water to enter your home, making it hotter in summer and colder in winter. They can also cause damage and mold in adjacent materials which is why an issue like this should be dealt with swiftly.

Hot or Cold Interiors

If you are feeling hotter or colder than usual within your home, your windows could be the culprit. Over time, wooden windows lose their shape because of constant exposure to extreme Canadian climates. This creates gaps and holes in the wood, causing air to enter.

Improper installations can result in loose window frames with gaps at the corners. These gaps serve as entry points for air.

While sealing the gaps is an option, it does not last long. Sealants, by nature, expand and shrink, which gives rise to gaps and the problem of airflow recurs, making replacement essential.

Inoperable Windows

If you are not able to open, shut, or slide your windows easily, you could do with new windows. There could be a problem with the window mechanism, which makes the window a pain, if not impossible, to deal with. Single- or double-hung windows are a case in point; these windows can lose their sliding capability following a failure in the working mechanism.

Fog or White Patches on the Pane

Double- and triple-paned glass windows with a leaking seal allow fog to settle inside the

glass. Fog leaves a calcium deposit in the form of a white patch on the glass, which is also an indication of a break in seal. Such leaks allow cold air into the room.

Too Much Noise within the House  

Efficient double- and triple-pane windows insulate you from outside noise. If you are using a single pane window, consider upgrading to a double- or triple-pane variety. If your double- or triple-pane windows are allowing the noise in, it could be time for a replacement.

Increasing Energy Bills

Efficient windows insulate your home from heat and cold. If the monthly energy bills seem too high, get your windows checked and if faulty, get them replaced.

Increase Your Home’s Resale Value

With its high recovery rate, window replacement is a worthy investment. The 2016 Canadian real estate market is expected to be slow for some home sellers. Gain a competitive edge with high quality replacement windows.
