Are Your Windows Soggy And Always Covered With Condensation? Time For A Replacement

Construction & Contractors Blog

If your windows get condensation between the panes and often feel damp when you touch around the wood frame, it's time to get quotes for new windows. You want to replace the old windows with new, high-quality options, and then you want to insulate around the box. Here are some of the services that you want to have done and that you want to get costs for when you are spending the money to replace the windows that are in your home.

Spray Insulation Around the Window Box

Tell the window installation contractor that you want to spray insulation around the window box. This way water can't get around the windows or get inside to the house from the window.

This will also help to prevent air loss around the windows, helping to conserve energy and reduce heating and cooling expenses. You may want this used in other areas around the home while you have the insulation professionals to your house doing work.

Get New Vinyl Windows

Wood windows are a lot of maintenance and don't have a long light span. Get new vinyl windows that are water- and fire-resistant, that won't be damaged by insects or other pests, and that aren't affected by weathering.

The vinyl is chip- and scratch-resistant and will be long-lasting, with a lifespan of potentially 40 years. These are also easy for professionals to get installed. These are an energy-efficient choice, and you'll want to pay extra for windows that are insulated internally. You can get these with security locks, automatic blinds, and more.

Evaluate Your Doors

Since you will have windows that aren't allowing air loss and that are high quality, you should replace the doors to your home at the same time. Find different vinyl and fiberglass options that you like and do the replacement at the same time so that your home is more efficient and also more secure.

The old windows in your home aren't just causing you to have high heating and cooling bills, but they may also be allowing water into the insulation of the home and into the frame and the structural components. Have more than one window installation company come to your property to give you an estimate to replace and remove all of the existing windows and then also look to see what quality of windows that plan to use in place of the old.

Speak with a professional who provides window replacement options to learn more.
