When To Replace?

Sometimes, it’s clear that your home’s windows need to be replaced, other times, it’s not so obvious. While there are always a number of benefits to replacement windows, knowing when the right time to replace your home’s windows can be a challenge. The window installation professionals at Total Remodeling Systems have put together the following window replacement checklist to help you decide if your windows should be upgraded:

  • Home over 15 years old: If your home is over 15 years old, chances are your windows could be too. Investing in replacement windows can improve your home’s appearance, comfort and efficiency.
  • Leaky or drafty windows: Have you noticed water collecting near your windows? Mold growing on the sill? A cool breeze or hotspot? These could be signs of a leaky or drafty window that needs to be replaced, especially with the unpredictable weather in Wisconsin.
  • Shabby appearance: Peeling or bubbling paint, cracks, rotting or faded wood and other unsightly imperfections are easily fixed and prevented with durable replacement windows.
  • Mismatched style: Do your windows look out of place compared to the exterior or interior spaces of your home? Don’t forget to keep your windows in-line with any style upgrades to avoid a mismatched house.
