Your children are drawing their names into the condensation on the windows.
The electric blanket constantly on your wife’s lap is making the cat jealous.
You need to pump up with a good workout before you can open or shut those windows.
Those are all some of the telltale signs that you need new windows, and they’re as clear as glass.
You might be delaying the inevitable, but take a moment to consider the benefits of replacing those windows on your home as soon as possible.
1. Saving on Heating and Cooling Costs
Windows aren’t there just for your cat to find a place to lounge while her favorite lap is taken.
They’re also made to keep cool air inside and hot air outside in the summer — and of course hot air inside and cold air outside in the winter.
Windows that are worn or damaged allow air to seep in or out. When that happens, it may lead to higher energy bills costs due to air escaping and the need to keep the thermostat at a non-optimal level.
2. Enhanced Security for Your Home
Another sign that you need new windows is when the locks are broken. One of the many benefits of replacing windows, therefore, is to minimize the possibility of break-ins.
3. Improved Home Design
New windows can dramatically improve the curbside appeal of your southeast Michigan home in several ways. These benefits include such things as modernizing the look of the house and creating a more comprehensive design.
4. Increased Home Value
A safer, warmer, and more beautiful home may increase the value of the house if you’re planning to sell it.
5. Keeping the Noise Out
You know that very low-decibel humming noise from that industrial business down the road? You’ve been living with it for years, so you may have learned to tune it out. But imagine if you don’t have to hear it at all anymore … ahh, beautiful silence.
New windows can help keep block out some of that outside noise, creating a more serene feeling in your home.
6. More Functional and Modern Windows
If you’ve been using a piece of a 2-by-4 to prop open the window of that 1930s-era Detroit home, please know there’s a better way. You’ve probably adapted because you had to, but it’s time to step out of the dark ages.
Today’s more modern windows offer many features such as double panes, smooth shutting and opening, an easier way to clean them, and locks that actually work.
On a serious note, improperly functioning windows may even pose a danger, such as when a window slides down unexpectedly.
So is it about time for you to throw off that blanket and start the process of getting new windows installed? If so, call us to schedule an appointment for a free consultation. We’re ready when you are.
