How to Tell When You Need New Windows

New Windows Kansas City, MO Replacing your house windows when they’ve run their course is important, as this will keep your Kansas City, Missouri, home looking and performing its best. But, how do you tell when the time has come for new windows? If you’re unsure whether you need to install replacement windows, consider whether you’ve noticed any of the following signs:

Unusually High Energy Bills

Oftentimes, climbing energy bills are an indication that you need new windows. Older windows lack the energy-efficient components that modern house windows are built with. Plus, all windows become less efficient as they age, which can lead to an increase in your heating and cooling costs in addition to making your home drafty and uncomfortable.

Condensation In Between the Window Panes

If you see condensation building up in between your window panes, it’s time for new windows. This type of condensation is a sign that the weather-stripping has failed – which can lead to leaking – and the windows need to be replaced.

Difficulty Operating Your Windows

Of course, if your windows aren’t working as they should, you may want to think about replacing them. If the windows stick, are difficult to open and close, or the locks don’t function properly, it’s likely time for new windows.

Excessive Wear & Tear

Cracked, warped, and faded frames all point to the need for a window replacement. In addition to being a cosmetic hindrance, wear and tear can be the first sign of a more serious problem, such as rot underneath the frames, so it’s important to address damage quickly.

Consult with an Expert

The best way to know for sure that you need new windows is to meet with a professional. Continental Siding – a longstanding local home improvement company – would be happy to help. CALL NOW to schedule a free consultation and estimate at your Kansas City, MO, home.

From the project manager, to the person installing, it’s a pleasant experience and it’s a professional experience – it made me feel that this is something that I can be proud of. Now we have a place that our family can enjoy. We’re just so glad that the project was done and it was done well. Honestly, we were blown away by the quality of work; it was second to none.

When I pull up to the house and see the stone, the new siding and the new windows, I feel real pride in our home. The beauty of the home has really helped this lot stand out. We’ve had a lot of neighbors complement our home. They put the siding on. It’s seamless. It’s beautiful. It really enhances the house. I just love our home.
