Should I replace my windows?

Should I replace my windows?

If your home was built prior to 2001, then it is likely that the windows you have installed no longer meet Florida's building codes. Most General Contractors installed standard grade aluminum frame, single pane windows to keep their costs down. Although your windows may look OK and serve their purpose, they have a limited lifespan and lack energy saving features to provide you with lower energy costs.

Below we have included a few guidelines to help you decide on replacing your windows:

  • Broken or Cracked Glass Panes
  • Sweating Windows
  • Leaking Windows
  • High Electric Bills
  • Foggy Windows or Condensation
  • Broken Window Frames
  • Drafty Windows

 

Things To Consider Before Installing Replacement Windows

Although today, the do-it-yourself is a popular mantra for many, this is not recommended for your window installation. Installing replacement windows is not a job for an amateur. It can quickly turn into a costly project if you do not know what you are doing. Therefore we recommend it is always best to find a local window installation company with trained professionals to tackle this project for you. Keep in mind the following:

  • Windows need to be installed level, square and plumb
  • Improper fit can allow air and water intrusion
  • Be sure to start with the right tools so it doesn't drag out and expose your home to the weather
  • Take exact measurements
  • If your window openings are not square, you may have to adjust them, which can involve trimming, restoration or creating a new surface to mount them into.
