How to know if you need new windows

How do I know if my windows should be replaced:

  • Frost or condensation on or between the panes of glass. Sure sign the windows are failing.
  • Windows become hot to the touch in warm months and cold to the touch in cooler months.
  • Temperature differences near windows in relation to the rest of the home.
  • Air infiltration and/or loss out or around windows.
  • Mechanical – Windows are difficult or impossible to close, don’t operate at all, cracked frames or glass.
  • Aesthetics – Window frame are chipping, colors faded/stained, outdated design (single pane glass), or a new home purchase and just unhappy with the looks.
  • Increased utility bills.
