3 Signs You Need to Replace Your Windows
Are you mulling over replacing the windows in your Overland Park or Olathe home, but aren’t sure if yours really need replacing? Well, you’re in luck. Four Seasons pinpoints three signs you need to replace the windows in your home.
1. The Original Frame Is Rotted or Out of Square
If framing is rotted or out of square, it’s time to replace your windows. These problems can cause even more issues for your home like allowing water, moisture, and hot or cool air to enter your home through the dysfunctional window. You can tell if you have this issue by trying to poke a screwdriver into the sills of the window. Or you can ask a window installer, like Four Seasons, to take a look and recommend the right course of action.
2. Your Windows Are Older Than 15 Years
If your home or windows are older than 15 years old, it’s a good idea to make sure the windows are still operating correctly. Windows older than 10–15 years tend to have issues opening or closing or get moisture caught in the interior of the window. They can also allow more ultraviolet rays to penetrate your home, which can fade the color of your furniture, carpet, and walls. Just like any other appliance or part of your home, your windows and doors will need replacing over time.
3. Your Kansas City Home Seems Especially Noisy
Your home should be an escape from the chaos and noise of everyday life. But if you find your home especially noisy from outside sources like planes, busy streets, or something else, it could be an issue with your windows. Replacing them with dual-pane or laminated glass can significantly reduce the noise seeping into your home.
