When you’re used to seeing something all the time, it can be difficult to recognize that it needs replacing. A good example of this is windows. When they don’t appear old, you probably don’t think much about getting new ones, even though they could actually be burning a hole in your pocket or causing potential safety risks!
To avoid turning a blind eye, here are a few tell-tale signs that your windows probably need to be replaced:
1. Your energy bills are way too high!
Old windows can be a huge money gouger. Older windows are significantly less effective in keeping your house the ideal temperature for any season. By upgrading your windows, it will reduce cooling and heating costs dramatically, saving you money and helping the environment.

2. You can hear everything happening outside
Your windows should act as a sound-barrier to the outside world. If your home is hearing every laugh, car or dog in the neighborhood, it’s a strong sign your windows are outdated. Upgrading your windows will absorb the noise from the outside world, giving you peace of mind and privacy.
3. You have to force windows open
If your windows are stubborn and don’t open easily, it’s a good indication that it’s time for an upgrade. This could be due to swelling by windows or aged wooden frames. Windows should be easy to open and close, so to keep your family safe and happy, upgrade your windows to industry standards.

4. Leaky windows
Leaking is an obvious sign that windows are inadequate and need to be replaced. Leaking can be due to wooden frames which warp and change with the weather, allowing for water to enter the home. The longer you put off replacing your windows, the worse the problem will become.
While upgrading windows may not seem pressing, putting it off can lead to costly damage, so don’t put it off!
