Understanding what your window is trying to tell you will give you time to decide on whether you need new windows. However, the problem is that most homeowners never notice issues until it’s too late. Renewal by Andersen® of St. Louis, the home remodeling expert, explains what signs for which you should look out:
Most window condensation is caused by too much humidity in your home and not enough ventilation. You see condensation form at the bottom or on the corners of the glass if this is the case. However, if condensation forms between the glass panes, this might mean the window seals have failed or have been compromised. In addition, your window might have lost all of its insulating gases if you see condensation form in the center of the glass. This means the window is no longer energy-efficient.
Water leaks around your window indicates that it’s not shutting tight enough or that there are cracks or gaps in the window frame. It’s important to ask a professional for a window inspection to determine if it is necessary to replace the window. Fortunately, we can install some of the best replacement windows available on the market, so you won’t have to worry about water reaching your interior.
This sign means you need to replace either the weatherstripping around the sashes or the glass panes. Drafts shouldn’t be ignored because they can cause you to pay higher energy bills than you should. The best long-term solution to drafts is upgrading your current windows with our products.
