Does the thought of having to replace your old windows make you lose sleep at night? We know that replacing the windows may seem scary at first, but if you choose the right replacement window company, the whole process can go smoothly. We at 1-800-HANSONS are here to help you determine if you need new windows and to decide what the right type of window is for you.

Signs that you need new windows

Unsure whether it’s time to replace your windows? Read on to learn some of the most critical warning signs! 

If your window is sagging, which means the frame is no longer straight but droopy, it’s time to think about replacing it. Some other warning signs are: 

  • the sills/frames are soft
  • the windows don’t open or close correctly
  • moisture or streaking build up between the glass panes and locks don’t latch. 
  • extremely hot or cold pockets of air coming from the window
  • a draft that can be felt when standing right in front of the window

What to look for in replacement windows

It’s important to find windows with ENERGY-STAR® ratings, which guarantees that your windows meet the necessary guidelines for energy efficiency. Vinyl windows are the best option to reduce heating or air-conditioning costs. Also, it’s essential to take expert installation and construction into account. Be sure to ask about a company’s custom options, like colors, hardware, or designer glass.

What are the benefits of vinyl windows?

Although vinyl windows may be a significant investment right now, in the long run, they can save you money by reducing energy consumption and the costs. Premium vinyl replacement windows can even make your home safer; they are easy to clean and don’t need to be sanded or painted.

Energy-efficient replacement windows will make your home a more comfortable place to live. In the winter, you will be kept warmer, and in the summer, you will be kept cooler. Energy-efficient replacement windows with Low-E coating also come with UV protection, which will keep your furniture, carpets, and framed favorite photos from fading due to sunlight exposure. New windows will increase the value of your home when it’s time to sell and improve its curb appeal.
