Window Installation and Repair
Windows are not designed to last forever. In fact, if your home’s windows are more than 15-20 years old, you may be overpaying to heat and cool your home. Today’s modern residential windows are built with energy efficiency in mind. Furthermore, they can add a higher level of security and sound dampening to your home. Therefore, you may be considering window installation to add value and comfort to your house. And it’s not just the age of your windows that may have you calling a window installation company. Repairs may be in order if your home has been victim to vandalism, poor weather, or other forces that have left chips, cracks, or other signs of damage. Crandell Glass & Aluminum can do it all from single window installation to repairs to full-scale exterior remodels.
When to Replace Your Windows
There are many signs that you should replace your residential windows. Likely the most obvious sign will be uneven hot and cold spots throughout your home. Older windows and poorly installed windows will not hold a proper seal, so a draft may creep through. Additionally, your windows may let in excess moisture and cause condensation on the windowpanes. If it’s tough to open and close your windows, that’s a sure sign of their age, and should also be cause for new window installation. Installing new windows with insulated glass will improve your comfort at home and help curb your energy bills.
Why You Shouldn’t Hold off on Window Repairs
If you notice a small chip or crack in one of your windows, you might not think much of it. However, much like cracks on a car windshield, small dings in your residential windows can get much worse without repairs. Eventually, a crack may become large enough that it cannot be repaired, so you will need to schedule window installation to replace the damaged window. In other cases, window repairs may be necessary if windows were initially installed incorrectly. This may cause issues with windows opening and closing properly as well as a draft that comes from an improper seal on the window.
