Knowing When To Replace Your Headingley, MB Windows
Unfortunately, knowing when to replace your windows is not always cut and dry. No one wants to unnecessarily replace windows before needed—and no one wants to discover they’ve waited too long, wasting money on energy costs. In this day and age, we all want our hard-earned money to stretch just a bit further out into our future. Our team here at Pioneer Window & Door Manufacturing has created, just for you, this know-how list to ensure you are confident it is the right time for replacement windows for your Headingley, MB home.
A pretty easy deciding factor when it comes to replacing your current windows is to ask yourself this pointed question: are these windows as up-to-date as the rest of my home? Things change, technology advances, and many windows manufactured in the 1980s and before were; well, not as sound as the ones on the market now.
Know-how: Added Resale Value
For those Headingley homeowners itching to sell, new replacement windows for your home—prior to putting the house on the market—is a smart investment move. Buyers are looking for top-of-the-line windows with the highest quality, look, and thermal integrity. New replacement windows can have a 15-40% return on your investment if manufactured and installed well. Plus, when you choose windows through Pioneer, you are choosing a company that manufactures, customizes, and services its own products. This means there’s no middle-person and you save money on your upgrades, which leaves even more room for return when you sell!
Know-how: Warning Signs
If you know what to look for, noticing signs your windows may need replacing is simple! All too often, we meet homeowners who simply do not know what warning signs of failing windows look like. So, we have made it simple; look for:
- Condensation or frost build-up
- Drafts in some rooms or areas of a space
- Cracks or rot in the frames (wood windows)
- Freezing to the touch in the winter or extremely hot in the summer
- Increasing heat or air conditioning bill, with no known changes as a cause
- Difficult operation (pane jams, doesn’t easily open, sticks in place)
- Slams shut or falls—single- or double pane windows
- Window suddenly won’t lock
