Is it time to get your windows replaced? There are several telltale signs that your old windows are no longer doing their job. If your home has become drafty, or your energy bill is unusually high, it is likely that old windows are the culprit. When old windows wear out, they tend to experience something known as seal failure. Seal failure is when the glass is no longer doing its job to create a barrier between the interior of the home and the outside air. An additional sign of seal failure is when you see condensation building up between the glass panels of the double-pane windows. There are temporary solutions to help seal the windows after this occurs, but the only permanent solution is new replacement windows. Without high-quality replacement windows, your home will only continue to waste energy.
If your home was built prior to 1960 and still has the old windows, lead paint could be a concern for your windows. The opening and closing of the windows causes friction, which can lead to the release of lead dust. This lead dust has the potential to cause lead poisoning in children, which is why it is important to find out if there could be lead paint around your old windows. If so, installing replacement windows and removing the old lead-filled ones is the safest option for your family.
