When you identify potential problems your windows may encounter, you will have the foresight to either repair them, for minor damage, or perform a complete window replacement. Here are the most common ones you might have to deal with.
Condensation of the Glass
In certain cases, condensation is naturally occurring, if it happens on the exterior of a window’s outer glass. However, once this occurs on the exterior of the inner glass, this is a sign of too much humidity. This may damage the insulation of the window, resulting in lower energy efficiency. You may have to consider replacement if you think it’ll need regular repairs that will cost you more in the long run.
When a window starts to break down, it will allow a slight amount of air to enter, but once it completely deteriorates, more air seeps in. This may be unnoticeable and tolerable at first, but once you overlook it longer, the more problems it will cause to your home’s temperature and its desired energy efficiency. It is ideal to start considering window replacement for such instances.
Leaks Around the Window
When water starts to leak into your house, the window may no longer be closing properly. This lack of sealing may cause water damage and energy efficiency problems.
Certain window problems may cost you more money if you decide to repair an old one instead of buying a new one. The older windows may have lower energy efficiency, and leak and fog more often, making more repairs and higher expenses inevitable. In such cases, Renewal by Andersen of Phoenix can provide you with high-quality window replacement. Our products use our exclusive Fibrex® material, which is more durable than other materials.
