Are Your Windows Safe? Is It Time to Replace Them?
When we ask if your windows are safe, what we mean is should they be replaced. Let’s go over some of the reasons why it might be time to replace some windows.
Do you feel any cold air coming through the window or around the window? That may mean that your glass is not double or triple paned, and you are losing heat through your glass. You are also letting not only cold air in but moist air. This can turn into a mold problem over time. You should have energy-efficient windows to maximize your comfort and minimize your heating bills.
Do you have windows with a cracked or chipped pane of glass? These are windows that should definitely be replaced. Most modern windows have two or three panes of glass within a sealed unit. It’s not possible to replace a pane of glass without replacing the whole window. However if you have glass that is broken, it will only get worse over time. Get your windows fixed before the glass shatters and falls out of the frame.
Do your windows lock? Is the lock broken? Sometimes a lock can be fixed, but often the whole window needs to be replaced. This is a serious safety issue if someone can open your window from the outside. Let professionals make your residence or business safer by replacing broken windows with ones that lock safely.
