7 Signs You Should Invest In New Windows

Replacing your home's windows might seem like a major project that you just want to avoid, but sometimes it's a necessity. Investing in new windows can make your home more comfortable and help you save on utility costs. Here are 10 signs you should invest in new windows:

1. Opening and closing your windows is a workout

Wear and tear can take a toll on a window's gears and hardware. If it takes too much effort to open or close your windows, something's not working right.

2. Your windows are painted shut

Windows that are painted shut cannot be opened during the summer months, making your home less comfortable. More importantly, painted-shut windows pose health and safety risks, especially when it comes to fire safety.

3. You've noticed chipping, deterioration and/or water stains

    Chipping, deterioration and water stains are a sure sign that it's time to replace your windows. They indicate that the windows are aging badly and will not hold up for long.

    4. Replacement parts are difficult to find

    If your windows need to be repaired but the replacement parts are too hard to find, then you should invest in new windows. Parts for very old windows may not even be available anymore.

    5. Your energy bills are too high

    Old windows were not built with energy-efficiency in mind. As home heating and cooling costs continue to soar, consider installing our OKNA Insul-Tec windows, which make your home energy efficient while enhancing its beauty.

    6. You need to prop your windows open

    Do you use a block of wood to hold your windows open? You shouldn't have to rely on additional assistance to enjoy a breeze!

    7. Your windows are drafty

    Speaking of breezes, there shouldn't be one when your windows are closed. If you notice a constant draft, it's certainly time to upgrade.
