Upgrading the windows on your home is a major project. However, the benefits of having new, modern windows on your Saskatoon home will pay you back in more ways than one. If you're thinking about replacing your home's windows, here are five signs it's time to do it now.
1. Broken Glass
Damaged windows are the most obvious sign that it's time to upgrade. Not only are your possessions at risk from thieves, but your home is open to harsh weather conditions and unwanted pests. Of course, a single window glass repair is always an option, but it might be an excellent excuse to freshen up your entire home.
2. Boost Curb Appeal
If your home sticks out like a sore thumb because the windows are tired and dated, it is definitely time for an improvement. Your home will look great, and your neighbours will thank you!
3. Noisy Neighbourhood
If your once-quiet neighborhood has become a bustling hub of activity, you don't have to move just to get a little peace and quiet. Upgrade to insulated glass units to block that unwanted noise and return your home to the cozy sanctuary you remember.
4. Button Up a Drafty Home
If your heating and cooling system is working overtime to compensate for your old drafty windows, an upgrade is definitely in order. Plus, your home will be much more comfortable when you do not have one room that is far too warm and another that is far too chilly from all the air leakage.
5. Cutting Energy Costs
It is easy to go green and save a little cash on your monthly energy expenses when you upgrade to energy efficient double pane windows. These work by sandwiching air between two panes of glass. The air acts as an insulator so your expensive heated or cooled air stays inside where it belongs.
