When to Repair or Replace Your Home’s Windows

Your home’s windows protect you from the elements, keep your home’s temperature comfortable and allow natural light to shine in. When your windows are at their best, they can save you money by regulating the heat you use, and preventing the need for artificial lighting during the day.

When something happens to your windows, you should act quickly to preserve their ability to protect your home. You can call on Handyman Connection of Lexington to inspect your windows and provide a project estimate on repairing or replacing your windows. But how do you know when your windows need to be replaced, or when they can be repaired? When you know the difference, you can get the job done right the first time.

Cloudy or Foggy Windows

Most double-pane windows have gas between each pane that acts as insulation. Over time, the seal around the window will start to deteriorate, and you will see clouds in the windows. At this point, the window needs to be replaced. If you crack the window and start to see clouds between the panes, then that also indicates the need to replace the entire window. In order for the window to be able to be as energy efficient as possible, it needs to be free from clouds.

Rotting Window Frames

People with older homes love the wooden window frames and prefer to keep them instead of having them replaced. The problem is that wooden frames can start to rot, and allow the elements to get into your home. Our expert craftsmen will fix your old window frames or replace them with energy efficient double-pane windows.

The windows on your home have several jobs, and they need to be in good working order to be able to do each task efficiently. If you are considering having a window repaired or replaced, the best approach is to call the professionals from Handyman Connection of Lexington to provide a free, no-obligation project estimate today!
