• Best Practices for Dealing with Window Replacement

    No matter what kind of windows you have, they will all need to be replaced eventually. While vinyl window replacement may seem like a costly project, it can add value, decrease your utility bills, and improve the curbside appeal of your home. Quality vinyl windows typically have a lifespan of up to 25 years. After the 15-year mark, we recommend having them replaced when you begin to see window inefficiencies or damage.

    Signs of Window Damage

    After several decades, it’s easy to tell if your vinyl windows have aged. Over time, opening and closing your vinyl windows will result in window stress and cracked frames. These cracks expose your home to Michigan elements and energy inefficiencies. Here are a few signs your windows may need to be replaced soon:

    • Difficult to open – If you’ve noticed your windows are dramatically harder to open and close, it’s time for replacement. Decades of opening and closing your windows results in the formation of tiny grooves and holes, which can make them inoperable. 
    • Drafts – Unexpected drafts typically mean there are cracks in your vinyl windows. With hot summers and cold winters in Michigan, it’s best to get these fixed as soon as possible, so your home is well-insulated. 
    • Foggy glass – Condensation that forms over your windows decreases functionality and efficiency. Plus, increased moisture can lead to mold build-up, which can negatively affect the structural integrity of your home.

    Many homeowners forget about regular window maintenance. At the end of the day, the longer you wait to replace your windows, the more your utility bills will rise and damage to your home will sustain.

    What Can I Expect When Replacement Time Approaches?

    The cost of your total vinyl replacement project will depend on several factors – including the number of windows your home has and the replacement window brand. Out of all replacement windows on the market, vinyl is one of the most affordable, so you won’t have to worry about breaking the bank.  Installment typically occurs 6-7 weeks after placing the order for your new vinyl windows
