How to Know if You Need Replacement Windows?

Signs you need to replace your windows include:

  • Damage: If your windows have sustained damage, you might need replacement windows. Ultrex fiberglass resists dings and dents that impact other window materials.

  • Higher Energy Bill: If you need a blanket in winter to sit by your windows, consider new energy efficient windows. Our windows can also help you feel comfortable in the summer by reflecting solar heat away.

  • Drafts and Window Leaks: If you’ve seen water issues—those are signs that excess moisture is accumulating. This can lead to mold, mildew, and warping for your windows. Drafty windows mean air is leaking through them. Window drafts reduce your home’s energy efficiency.

  • Hard to Open + Close: When windows and doors have become difficult to open, it can mean they have started to warp over time. The strength of our Ultrex fiberglass makes it more resistant to warping. That means your windows and doors will open and close for years to come.

  • Condensation Between Panes: If you notice window condensation between glass panes, you could have a seal failure. A broken seal could mean getting replacement windows.
