Homeowners will have to replace their doors and windows at some point during their homeownership period. In fact, there are some clear signs that you actually need a window or door replacement. Here are some of the tell-tale signs to help you identify whether it’s time for either your doors or windows to be replaced.
There is no clearer sign that either your windows or doors need replacing than feeling a draft of either hot or cold air. In fact, drafty windows and doors are one of the sure-fire signs that you are dealing with a huge home problem. During the summer, the hot air can enter through a broken door or window. The same thing is true for cold air during the winter. Simply replacing the weather stripping to your windows is always a great idea but it is just a temporary fix. To find a long-lasting solution to a draft would be to replace your windows and doors and begin enjoying your home once and for all.
Peeling Paint And Splitting
Do your window sills or doors have peeling paint or any splitting? If so, you may want to consider replacing your windows or doors. In fact, window deterioration is something older homes typically deal with but will also be an issue for anyone living in a home long enough for the paint to begin to chip or peel. If you are noticing peeling paint and splitting wood, it might be time for you to replace the windows or doors in your home. Otherwise, you could end up dealing with rotting wood and cause more issues to your home that could end up being incredibly costly.
Trouble Opening, Closing Or Locking All Your Doors And Windows
Doors and windows that are sealed shut can be a hazard for your entire family. In fact, all doors and windows should be open easily and efficiently while also having reliable locking capabilities as well. If you are constantly struggling with either opening, closing or locking either your windows or doors, you might be safer replacing these home features as soon as possible.
