Over long term home ownership, the windows in your Sonoma CA home need to be replaced just like your wallpaper or floor tiles. But when is exactly the right time to replace your home’s windows? Building professionals recommend that if the windows in your home are more than 15 years old, it’s probably a good time to check and make sure they are still operating correctly.
For instance, do you have trouble opening or closing your windows? Are they difficult to clean properly? Do you consistently find moisture on your windows’ interior? Can you feel a draft when near your windows? If you can answer yes to any of these questions, chances are that you need replacement windows.
Going Down the List
You can give your home a common sense and systematic once-over and decide whether or not replacement windows are the right investment for you.
Many older homes have original windows built with single-pane glass. These old windows often freeze open or shut and they feel cold or icy to the touch. Newer, energy-efficient windows offer standard insulating features such as heat-reflecting low-E coatings and argon gas between panes and can save homeowners anywhere from 10-25% each year on heating and cooling costs.
Less Noise – If you live near an airport, childcare center, school, or a busy street, noise can be at a high level in your house. Replacing your windows with dual-pane or a laminated glass can reduce the outside noise transmission into your home.
In the Eye of the Storm -The annual ritual of installing and removing storm windows can be challenging and time-consuming, especially for multi-level homes. The energy efficiency of replacement windows eliminates the need to install and remove storm windows.
Keep Hot and Cold Where it belongs – The weather conditions outside your home should not appear on the inside. Inefficient windows can leak, allowing water to come into your house both in front of and behind the wallsa leading cause of mold and mildew in homes. Aging windows or patio doors often leak air, resulting in high energy bills during peak heating and cooling months.
Goodbye Costly Maintenance – Want to eliminate the job of painting your window frames for good? Replace your current windows with aluminum-clad or vinyl-clad windows. Most replacement windows offer exterior trim that never needs to be painted.
