Windows for Home Renovation

If you have been living in an older home, one that was constructed 10 years or more ago, it may be time to install modern windows.  This is especially so if you’re current windows are the kind with single panes of glass.  You need to upgrade to the newer, more energy efficient kind. You need to consider several things in order to know whether or not it’s time to make this change.


First does your home become too cold in the winter months and is it too hot in summer?  When you walk by the windows do you feel cold or heat coming through them?  Or do you notice your curtains blowing even when the window is closed? And how are you monthly energy bills doing?  Are they getting more and more expensive with time?  Another sign that you need to change them is if they ice over or fog up or rattled on a windy day.  If these signs are evident in your home then it is time to get new windows installed.
