How Do I Know When It's Time for New Windows?



Seasonal changes may force homeowners to upgrade or repair elements of their homes. Fixing the roof, replacing the water heater, or installing new pipes are relatively common. While some replacements are obvious, others may not be top of mind unless a severe issue occurs. Have you ever looked around your home to assess what may be outdated or inefficient?

Windows showcase the beauty of the outdoors without allowing in the heat, cold, elements, or unwanted guests. They help to create spaces for you to be comfortable and embrace nature from the inside. We can even leave them open during certain times of the year to let in a nice breeze.

We can paint, read a book, or simply relax by the window to appreciate nature. Although, none of these activities may be possible if the windows are damaged or dated. Replacement of the windows in your home may be essential to prevent energy inefficiencies, maintain home value, and offer protection from the elements or burglaries. But how can you tell if you are ready for new ones?

Signs That Your Windows Need Replacement: 

·         Condensation forms in between your windowpanes

·         Water is actively leaking in, or you see evidence of water damage

·         You can feel a draft

·         Window frames are broken or cracked

·         Poor temperature control is evident

Why You Should Replace Your Windows: 

From the outside, new windows can boost the appearance of a home. Aesthetics on the inside will improve as well. Looking good is important, but functionality is imperative. Drafty windows ruin the enjoyment of your indoor spaces by creating unfavorable temperatures. They can make the heating and air conditioning systems work harder to regulate the temperature. This leads to a higher electric bill. Lastly, if you live in areas prone to severe acts of mother nature, like hurricanes, you will want reassurance that your home is safe. This protection decreases with older windows in our homes. 

Solutions to Fix the Problem:

You should not have to worry about high electric bills or the level of safety or comfort that your home possesses. It may be time to replace the windows! Start admiring nature from the indoors worry-free today.  Contact Four Seasons Sunrooms and Windows at 888-270-3546.

Covid-19 Changes Spending Habits

We all have seen the detrimental effects the COVID-19 pandemic has had on our communities. The loss of jobs, inability to stock up on basic necessities, and lack of person-to-person contact are just a few of the things we went months without. As our society is finally returning to “normal” due to the introduction of vaccines, we are all opening up our doors and spending more time with those we love. Before we discuss the bright future ahead, let's take a moment to reflect on the past. During the heart of the pandemic, many industries were struggling.
