Carmichael, CA window replacement is something that every home is going to need eventually. It’s up to you as the homeowner to decide when that project happens. It’s best to take it on when it’s necessary and not put it off. The longer you put it off, the more money you are wasting on energy bills and the more damage that could be done to your house. Here are a few windows that need to be replaced right away without question:
Single Pane Windows
If you have single pane windows on your home, you should really get to the window store right away and start shopping. Single pane windows are really old and they waste a ton of energy. Windows today come with double pane windows as a standard and they can be upgraded to triple pane, if you’d like. Single pane windows do no good for the efficiency of your home and they’re really easy for intruders to break if they want to get into your home. Get them out as soon as you can.
If you have wood windows and that wood is starting to feel soft and mushy, even just in a few spots, that’s a sign that the wood is rotting. It maybe wasn’t properly cared for over the years and the moisture got the better of it. Whatever happened to it, once rot settles in, it only gets worse. You can’t stop the rot, though you can maybe slow it down a bit. It’s a safety hazard and you definitely want your window replacement to happen sooner rather than later.
How do you tell if your windows are warped? Well, if they’re really bad, you might be able to see the wave in them. Otherwise, they might be warped if they won’t open and close easily. You shouldn’t have to wrestle with your windows to try and get them to open. When they’re warped, that’s also something that isn’t going anywhere until you get window replacement.
Windows With Between Pane Condensation
Condensation is going to happen on windows, either inside or out. But it shouldn’t happen between the panes of glass. If it does, you have a broken seal, which means your efficiency is going out the window—quite literally. Getting a replacement window for any window with condensation between the panes of glass is in your best interest.
