How do you know whether to replace or repair? Check out our helpful guide below.

Consider Repair If…

You Have Broken Glass

You might think a replacement is in order if the glass in your window panes is broken, but that’s not the case. A replacement involves removing everything, including the frame, but panes of glass can be replaced without a full window replacement.

The Weather Stripping or Caulk is Falling Apart

Besides decreasing the energy efficiency of your home, peeling caulk or weather stripping lowers the curb appeal of your home. Simply recaulking the window is the easiest and most affordable option.

Just One Part of the Window isn’t Working

Is the lock on your window misbehaving? Do you have trouble with the crank on your casement window? Rather than replacing the entire window, just replace the broken part. 

Choose Replacement If…

Your Windows are Difficult to Operate

Generally speaking, if you’re struggling to get your windows open it’s time to replace them. In addition to being frustrating, windows that are hard to open are a hazard because they pose a serious threat in the event of an emergency, like a fire.

Your Furniture is Fading

If you’ve noticed your curtains, carpet, or furniture is fading, it’s because your windows aren’t blocking UV rays the way they should. Keep your furniture vibrant by replacing your windows.

Your Windows are Single Paned

Older homes tend to come with single paned windows and because glass is such a good conductor of heat, these windows make it significantly harder to heat your home during the winter and cool your home in the summer. Double or triple paned windows offer more energy efficiency, helping you reduce your energy bills.
