Along with the roof and siding, windows form a barrier from destructive factors such as water from rain or hails, strong winds, while also letting the sunlight into your house and being a nice part of both the interior and exterior of your house. Cracks in the window frames or glass not only make your home look untidy but also reduce the efficiency of your windows’ performance.
5 Types of Damage That Can Only Be Fixed By Replacement.
Low-quality window frames can fail to succumb rotting because of poor water-resistance. When replacing your windows, it is better to choose moisture-proof window frames.
If your window frame doesn’t have the capacity to resist the sudden temperature fluctuations, it can lead to frames shrinking and expanding.
If the window sashes are hard to open and close, that means they have expanded. This type of problem can be repaired, but for a more permanent solution, window installation is a better choice.
If condensation occurs between window panes, it means your window’s seals have been broken, resulting in cracks in the material allowing air and moisture to pass through. This typically requires the windows replacement or windows repair as it significantly decreases the performance of your windows.
Locks and other hardware failures can be fixed too, but it’s better to install new hardware to ensure hassle-free, long-term performance
