Knowing When to Install Replacement Windows
It’s important to understand the signs that you might need replacement windows. One indicator that you may need to replace windows immediately is rot. “With certain windows, you can do significant damage in the walls due to rot,” window specialist Greg Hiebert told the Topeka Capital Journal. Sometimes rot is apparent but it can be hidden beneath the surface as well. Other signs that you might need replacement is if your windows are painted shut.
If you have older windows you should take special care, according to Consumer Reports. Lead-based paint was banned in 1978 and is common in homes built before 1960. Some homes still have single pane windows and many older windows are less energy efficient.
