Top Signs that You Need Replacement Windows

Modernize & Stylize Your Home with Replacement Windows

Determining whether the performance of the windows of your Little Rock home is failing can be as simple as paying attention to obvious indicators. At Royal Windows & More, our window experts are explicitly trained to identify the cause of poor window performance and how to improve it. More often than not, it requires the installation of replacement windows. Some homeowners prefer to look at their windows before calling out any contractors to inspect them. For homeowners that want to do this, we suggest you watch out for the following warning signs.

Signs You Need Replacement Windows:

  • Old and Dated: Not all windows are made equal, in fact, older windows do little to help your home’s energy efficiency. Modern windows are equipped with advanced energy saving technologies to save you energy dollars and keep the interior of your home at a more comfortable temperature.
  • Physical Damage: One of the most obvious signs is physical damage to the glass or frame of the window. This severely dampens the energy efficiency of your home because heat transfer and air leakage occurs at a faster rate through the damaged areas. Warping is another concern due to the increased stress put on the glass that can cause it to crack.
  • Drafts from the Window: If you feel a draft coming from your windows every time you walk by them, then you need to replace them. Drafty windows drain energy from your home at an alarming rate, costing you far more money throughout the year.
  • Difficulty of Operation: When a window is out of balance, it doesn’t operate properly. This results in windows slamming shut for no reason or being hard to open. Windows that are hard to open are a terrible danger if an emergency should arise.
  • Condensation: This is common occurrence for the outside surface areas of your windows and areas directly around them. However, if condensation does appear between the panes of a multi-pane window, then that is cause for concern. This essentially means that a seal is malfunctioning or there’s a ’rack somewhere in the window that allows moisture to infiltrate the space. This results in air leakage and a loss of your window’s insulating gas.

Be Aware of Your Windows’ Efficiency

The ability to identify issues with your home’s windows provides Little Rock homeowners with a great advantage in terms of maintaining energy efficiency for their homes. Every home’s windows need to be replaced eventually; it’s just a matter of when and who you trust with the installation.
