Windows only last so long, and when the time comes to replace them, you’ll be able to tell. Windows that have chronic problems, are energy inefficient and lack modern design standards need to be replaced. Below, we’ve outlined some of the clear signs that your windows could use an upgrade.

#1. You’ve Been Given High Quotes to Fix Broken Windows

As homes age, the frames that contain windows can become warped, while seals around window panes break, fogging up the space between dual pane fixtures. Getting one window repaired may be a small expense, but repairing half the windows in your home is costly, and for what? Windows only last so long. Replacing older windows rather than repairing them starts over the clock so you can enjoy your windows for decades to come.

Renewal by Andersen of New Jersey and New York Metro window frames are made from an Andersen exclusive composite product called Fibrex. These window frames are made from wooden fibers that come from reclaimed wood, and polymer. If you have vinyl windows in your home, Fibrex windows are likely stronger than windows you have in your home, and more durable than wood. Take a look at this video about Andersen’s 20 Year Durability Study.

In other words, it will be a long time before you’ll need to replace your windows after installing Renewal by Andersen products.

#2. Your Windows Are Single Pane

Single pane windows were standard in homes for many years, and some homes still have these windows installed. Single pane windows can be a problem because they’re energy inefficient, have almost no insulating qualities and have little soundproofing ability.

Today, nearly all commercially sold residential windows are dual pane. Some of these windows have insulating gas between the panes, others are filled with air. Triple pane windows are the most energy efficient products available but very, very expensive, while dual pane windows are more cost effective and a little less chunky. Work with your window contractor to choose the product that has the right qualities for your home and your lifestyle.

#3. Your Home’s Temperature Is Impossible To Control

Inefficient windows and poorly fitting windows experience chronic air and energy leaks. If your home experiences wild temperature fluctuations throughout the day, this could be because of your windows. Installing new windows will make it easier to control your home’s interior temperature.

Renewal by Andersen products received the 2019 ENERGY STAR® Partner of the Year – Sustained Excellence award, which means that they can reduce your home’s energy consumption while having minimal environmental impact. Installing Renewal by Andersen products makes interior temperature control easier, and rooms that once baked in the summer and froze in winter may become more comfortable.
