You might simply want to replace your windows or doors to update your property but look out for signs that they need replacing sooner rather than later:
Blown Glass - if you’re seeing moisture between the panes of glass in your windows it might be a sign you need to replace them. It could mean your windows are no long energy efficient because the seals have failed and moisture is getting in between the glass panes.
Frames are soft - Sometimes old timber window frames can become sponge like and ‘softer’ when you press them. It’s likely these frames were fitted before the use of Accoya – the timber we use which is a treated wood which is guaranteed to last for fifty years above ground.
Frames are cracked - If your window frames have multiple or significant cracks you need to replace your windows urgently as this compromises security and makes your home colder.
Your home is drafty - Customers frequently comment that they hadn’t realised how much warmer they could make their home by replacing their windows.
Problems opening and closing - Window openings sticking? Need help pulling them closed? Problems with windows opening or closing can be really frustrating. In fact, this could be a security hazard if you’re not able to evacuate your home.
Many of these will be a result of older, wooden windows but new technology and timber treatment mean today’s timber windows can actually withstand bad weather better than other materials. This means you don’t have to compromise a great style for security or warmth!
