Checking your windows for problems is a bigger deal than you think. If they are damaged, falling apart, or generally in bad shape, it can wreak havoc to your home on many levels. Hiring a window company to check for any damage on your Sterling Heights home is crucial. Here are five signs that you should consider replacing these features in your home.
- When the Frame Starts to Leak
When the frame starts to leak or falls apart, it is a cause for concern. Water and moisture coming in from an unsealed crack can cause mildew, water damage, and other problems that can be expensive to fix. Visually check for any weak spots caused by moisture coming in over time. If you do see brown spots or spots that are soft to the touch around the frame, it’s time to consider a replacement.
- Your Energy bills are Sky High
A small crack or gap can let in cool or warm air into or out of your house. You will notice keeping the heat on longer or the AC running all the time. This will cause a huge dent in your pocket. A properly-functioning window will have no gaps or cracks.
- Condensation Starts To build Up Often
The fog that constantly builds upon the glass can be a cause for concern. Most of the time, this is a sign that the sealing is starting to fail and corrode away. When this starts to happen, you need to either reseal or replace them completely.
- When the Glass is Cold to the Touch During the Winter
When your glass is cold to the touch, that generally means there is a problem. There may be a crack in the frame or seal. This usually means too much cold is are creeping into the gap between the panes.
