Do I Need New Windows?

Your windows will provide you with signs that they’re starting to fail. However, it’s easy to miss those signs if you’re not paying attention. When you start seeing the below indicators, it’s time to upgrade your windows.

  • The frames are starting to decay. While you can try repairing them, if they’re past their prime, it might be a waste of money.
  • You feel drafts or your energy bills are higher. Leaking windows can reduce your overall comfort and cause your energy bills to increase. While you might be able to re-caulk or replace the weatherstripping, these might not do a lot for older windows.
  • Your windows are harder to open and close. If you can’t easily operate your windows or they’re swollen shut, it’s time to get new ones.
  • You see condensation between the panes of glass indicating broken seals.
  • You hear a lot of noise from the outside due to poor soundproofing.

"We had a crew from Renewal by Andersen install six new windows for us. The job they did was amazing. Every one of the guys on the crew were very personable, knowledgeable, and extremely hard working. They arrived at approximately 8:00 am and were finished by 5:00 pm. They thoroughly cleaned up after themselves. Since the windows were installed, we have noticed significant changes. No longer can we hear the neighbors next door talking in their backyard. We no longer feel air coming in from the old “closed” windows, which means our heating and cooling fees will come down. Not only that, but these windows are simply beautiful."
