Knowing when you need your window repairs is vital for long efficiency and tighter security. The issues with windows can seem daunting, but with Decorative Glass & Glazing – it can be fixed on no time.
How Long Do Windows Last
On average, modern windows will last between 15-20 years. However, it is not wise to wait to the end of their life to get windows replacements & repairs. It is better to deal with any issues as they arise and if they need to be replaced, contact your local window installer to help you get the best finish.
When You Need Your Windows Replaced
You will be able to tell when your windows need replacing by noticing a few of the signs below:
- Cracked Panes & Frames – When a window is cracked, be it the glazing or frame – it effects your windows security & insulation.
- Fogged Glass – This is more common in double & triple glazing. It is when a small hole is in the glazing/frame that allows condensation to form between the panes. Replacement may be the best option to tackle the issue.
- High Energy Bills – When there are issues with the integrity or structure of your window & frames, the insulation properties are greatly reduced. This has a knock on effect on your energy usage!
- Soft Frames – Common in wood frames especially – you’ll know when the wood is soft to touch. It may be caused by moisture making its way into the frame. Replacing these effected frames is the best course of action as modern material will be able to combat the moisture more efficiently.
