How do you know when it’s time to repair your windows? For most homeowners, window repair will be something that will come up eventually. But, how do you know when it’s best to repair a window rather than replace it? Let’s take a look.
Repairing a window may occur to you before getting it totally replaced — and with good reason. If there’s only a minor issue with just one of your house windows, you’re probably better off repairing it. Here are some of the things you should be looking at before making a decision.
If you’re experiencing window fog, it could mean water condensation has lodged itself between the double or triple glass panes. While these can be removed and rebuilt, many will opt to just replace the units with updated units that are sealed and permanent.
When you find that water is appearing to leak around the windows, it could be one of two things. If your water drainage is aimed right at the window, the seal may not be able to hold it. Try rerouting the drainage first. If that doesn’t work, the casing may be bad. If this is the case, and water appears to actually be going through it, it may be time for a replacement.
A single-pane window may be easier for homeowners to repair than multi-paned. If a multi-paned window is broken or cracked, a sash replacement could be in order. If neither of these options is cost-effective, or more than one window needs repair, consider replacing them instead.
