From the experts at Renewal by Andersen® of Cape Cod, here are five things to look for that will help determine if the time has come to replace your windows:
Apparent Leaks and Drafts
Drafty, leaky windows pose a threat to your home in a number of ways. Most concerning is that they could potentially introduce water damage to your home, along with a host of other problems that can affect not only the structural integrity of your property, but your health as well.
Decreasing Indoor Air Quality
Your indoor air quality may also be at risk with leaky windows. Having clean air in your home requires proper ventilation, but if your windows aren’t functioning as they should, they will prevent this from happening.
Increasing Energy Bills
Windows play an important part in keeping energy consumption as low as possible. Our replacement windows at Renewal by Andersen of Cape Cod are built with Fibrex® frames, which are excellent insulators, as well as High-Performance™ Low-E4® glass that allows sunlight to enter your home while at the same time blocking out heat.
Our windows are made to eradicate problems like warping and rotting. Fibrex was developed to have the same strength as the wood windows homeowners have always loved, without the corresponding high amount of maintenance required by wood. The strength of Fibrex combined with its other excellent properties result in a frame that won’t warp, rot or peel.
Lacking Visual Appeal
All homeowners need to pay attention to how their properties look, both on the inside and the outside, if they want the value of their homes to remain high. Installing new patio doors or using a new bay window to improve the look of your bedroom and let in more natural light are a couple of great ways to improve how your home looks.
